A woman killed after a horror 160ft drop from a "Cinderella" castle bridge has been identified as Eva Liu, 21.
Eva, from Naperville, Illinois, United States, was named as the woman who was thrown down a ravine after an unidentified man attacked her and a friend during a trip to a beauty spot.
She had been visiting near Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany, with friend Kelsey Chang, 22, who survived the horror attack that was described as "senseless".

Both women had recently graduated from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, with the pair taking a trip to the beauty spot that is claimed to have inspired Walt Disney in the making of Cinderella.
A statement from Robin Kaler, an associate chancellor for UIUC, read: "Our University of Illinois family is mourning the senseless death of Ms Liu and the attack on Ms Chang.
"Both had just graduated in May and should have been able to celebrate such an important accomplishment without the fear of such a tragic outcome."
Police in Germany revealed the 30-year-old man allegedly responsible for the attack, who is yet to be identified, had sexually assaulted one of the two women before the fatal plunge.
He was arrested later in the day on suspicion of the horrific crimes. He is reported to have convinced the women he would act as lookout before he "physically attacked" the younger of the two tourists.

A police statement read: "According to the current state of knowledge, an attempted sexual offence to the detriment of the 21-year-old must be assumed.
"The 22-year-old wanted to help, so he choked her and pushed her down the slope."
Chang continues to recover after being airlifted from the site, police confirmed.
A man who witnessed the arrest says the alleged murderer had a "bloodied face" as he was taken away into custody, wearing a t-shirt, jeans and a baseball cap.
