Police in Germany believe a gardener who died last week may have planted bombs as booby traps for those he held grudges against, according to reports.

The gardener, 59-year-old Bernhard Graumann, was found dead on Friday, the BBC reported. That same day, a 64-year-old doctor was killed by an explosive planted at the front door of his practice, said the report.

On Sunday, a woman and her four-year-old daughter were injured after a booby-trapped log was placed into a stove and exploded, according to The Associated Press

The injuries in Sunday’s explosion weren’t life threatening, but the four-year-old is still seeking treatment at a hospital, Westpfalz police spokesman Bernhard Christian Erfort told AP.

Police are awaiting autopsy results on the gardener, who was said to have bad relationships with the victims, per CNN.

“The police cannot rule out that prior to his death, the deceased had made preparations that could endanger other people’s life and limbs,” a statement said, CNN reports.

“In particular, people who have had a problematic private or business relationship with Graumann are urged to contact the police immediately.”
