The reward for clues leading to the arrest of one of Germany’s most hotly pursued criminals has been doubled to a record €300,000, daily Bild reported on Tuesday.

For 15 years, the murderer and thief has left baffled law enforcement officers in Germany, Austria and France as she left female DNA traces at numerous crime scenes.

She is called the "phantom killer," the "woman without a face," by the German media and considered to be dangerous and brutal, the paper reported.

Investigators found traces of the phantom killer’s DNA at the scene of the brutal murder of a 22-year-old police officer in Heilbronn in 2007, but have yet to determine a motive.

Meanwhile more of the serial killer‘s DNA turned up at in the car of a 45-year-old Weinsberg nurse who was found dead by hikers in October.
