Police in Berlin say they suspect the lorry involved in the tragedy was stolen form a construction site in Poland.
The truck was registered to a firm in Poland.
Its owner said he lost contact with his cousin, who was transporting steel beams from Poland to Germany, earlier in the day and feared the lorry had been stolen.

They appear however to be suggesting that the "Polish" passenge, who died, might have be the Polish owner's cousin who was the original driver. Whether he'd been kidnapped or was an accomplice wasn't discussed.
The Polish media is far more forthcoming than the German media – so entrenched are they in Merkel’s Muslim immigration disaster.
My source tells me that the jihadis who plowed into a Christmas market today in Berlin stole the truck from a Polish driver who was making a delivery to a Muslim neighborhood. The Polish truck driver told his wife he “did not feel safe” in that neighborhood. His wife has not been heard back from him since 3 pm.
Berlin police say that the Polish driver’s body was found in the cab of the truck. According to “Die Welt,”he died from gunshot wounds. Polish authorities are in contact with the German services.
Rports are that the Polish driver was in the passenger seat, already abducted and dead as the truck rammed the market.
More google translate from this Polish article, awkward yes, but you get the pictureToday afternoon was the last time I had contact with the driver of this truck. At 4 pm his wife called him and he wasn’t picking up his phone. Yes, it is my truck – said Ariel Żurawski, the owner of the lorry that went into a crowd of people at a Christmas market in Berlin.
– We got this viehicle in June. It was all new. It was in Berlin because we were taking it from Italy and we were supposed to unload it in Berlin. The Germans didn’t want to unload the truck today, they said to the driver to wait until tomorrow 8 am – said the owner.
He said, there are only Muslims around him”
He said, that the driver is his cousin. When he called him last time, the driver said, that the only real Germans he saw in this location, were the workers at the office.
– From what I know, the driver was caught, when he was running. Well, my driver weights around 130kg (around 286lbs), so he couldn’t run. He was waiting before the entrance to the company, where he should unload and he was alone in the truck’s cabin – he said.
Interesting: I thought I heard on the news in the night that the passenger had been rushed to hospital, but died. Assuming that he was indeed the original driver, the killer must surely have killed him when he stole the truck and surely the German police would know a long-dead body when they saw one. A clumsy attempt at a cover-up before they realised it couldn't be done this time?Rports are that the Polish driver was in the passenger seat, already abducted and dead as the truck rammed the market.

The Pakistani asylum seeker arrested after the Berlin Christmas market massacre was allegedly held for a sex attack in July and was already on the Interpol crime database, it was revealed today.
Arrested suspect Naved B, is believed to have entered the country under a false name on New Year's Eve 2015, and some German newspapers said he may have been radicalised by an ISIS handler after arriving in Germany.
Germany's Defence Minister Thomas de Maizière today confirmed that the suspect was not on Germany's terror list but was on the Interpol list of criminals. He was also allegedly arrested in Berlin for a sex attack in July and other petty crimes.
The minister also revealed that the suspect had failed to attend his first asylum hearing and then appeared at a second but claimed he spoke no German and required an interpreter so it was adjourned.
Naved B has been taken to a Berlin police station for interrogation. The suspect is denying involvement in the crime.

http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/12/19/one-dead-lorry-plows-berlin-christmas-market/Although he had an 18-hour head start after German police accidentally arrested the wrong suspect, officers have now released more details on the suspect identified as ‘Anis A’. Known to go by at least four aliases the man is known to be dangerous, and has links to a known extremist Islamist network. He was investigated by police during the summer over a case of greivous bodily harm but was never prosecuted as he absconded.
Anis A applied for asylum in April 2015, reports Süddeutsche Zeitung, and although he was not successful the Tunisian migrant received papers confirming his tolerated foreigner status. Traces of his DNA have been found in the cab of the truck that was used to kill 12 on Monday evening.
German police are now seeking a new suspect after releasing the 23-year-old Pakistani male last night. According to information received by Germany’s Spiegel, investigators found an identity document for a 24-year-old Tunisian immigrant named as Anis A. tucked under the driver’s seat in the cab of the lorry.
The paper reports the migrant is known to use aliases including Ahmed A. The document is a certificate of tolerance — a paper issued by the German government to recognise a temporary right to remain for failed asylum seekers who don’t have otherwise legitimate travel documents — and was processed in North Rhine-Westphalia.
There will be another press conference in Berlin at lunchtime today.
