What happened to Lt. Günther Scheel (3./JG 54) ?

He collided with his 71st victim (a Yak-9) on 16 July 1943 over Bolkhov.
Reported as missing.
However, he was seen in a camp at Ielaguba in 1946 and in an hospital at Solny in 1948.
Reported as missing ever since.

He joined 3./JG 54 in April 1943 and was brought down three months later, claiming no less than 71 "kills" in 70 operational sorties!
He received many awards, including the Ritterkreuz, posthumously.

Hello everyone,

Around the collision are uncertainties, which version is correct, please?

1/ Lt. Scheel when shooting Yak-9 got too close and crashed into it.
2/ An unknown Soviet pilot crashed into it intentionally or inadvertently.
3/ In a dogfight they both collided.

Thank you for answer and have a nice day.
