Uwe Böhnhardt (1 October 1977[1] – 4 November 2011) was a German right-wing extremist and, together with Uwe Mundlos and Beate Zschäpe, members of National Socialist Underground, a neo-Nazi terror group. It is believed that Böhnhardt was killed in 2011 by Mundlos in an apparent murder-suicide.[2]

Police identified traces of Böhnhardt's DNA on a fragment of fabric found near the site at which the missing girl Peggy Knobloch [de] was found.[3] Subsequently, German police retracted that claim when it was discovered that a DNA error had occurred.[4]
