    Nicky Verstappen: Suspect held over Dutch boy's 1998 death
    • 27 August 2018


    Jos Brech was identified as a suspect after the Netherlands' biggest ever DNA harvesting operation, which included his relatives.

    It gave police a vital clue linking him to DNA on Nicky Verstappen's clothes.

    Mr Brech is due to be extradited to his home country, where he faces charges of kidnapping, sexual assault and murder.

    "Jos B, 55, a suspect in the death of Nicky Verstappen was arrested in Spain on Sunday afternoon. He was taken into custody and will be handed over to the Netherlands," said a statement from police in Limburg, the southern Dutch province where the boy disappeared.

    The arrest follows a public appeal last week, during which detectives shared photographs of the suspect. A Dutchman living in Spain recognised the man in the photos and tipped off police...

    From the article:

    The 56-year-old man confessed to viewing child pornography. He no longer remembers how many images there were and said he downloaded them accidentally.
    .....

    But according to B.'s lawyer Gerald Roethof, there are multiple other men who could have committed this crime. Ten days after Nicky's death Willem C. was caught sexually abusing a boy in the bushes near where Nicky's body was found. Witnesses said he had been hanging around for a while, the lawyer said. Someone also claimed that his neighbor often hung around Nicky's summer camp and saw a boy that looked like Nicky with a "man in a car full of poo", the lawyer said. "If this kind of information is withheld, you get a distorted picture of my client, and his role", Roethof said.

    Roethof also told the court about a man who sent two letters to the police in which he confessed to sexually abusing Nicky Verstappen in a caravan with someone else. According to Roethof, the man confessed during an interrogation in the presence of his lawyer. "That should not be missing from the file."

    Downloading child pornography accidently, yeah sure...:rolleyes:
    But: IMO there indeed were a few very fishy people near that summer camp, which I find suspicious and shocking in itself.

    Yeah, accidentally downloading anything hasn't happened to me yet. Since I don't go to child porn sites I'm sure that will never happen. What's so unbelievable about a man with a car full of poo? Poo means the same thing there I assume.

    I also don't get the significance of that 'sighting' in that car... I do think Brech did it, since his DNA was there and he went into hiding. I hope this will be enough for a conviction, Nicky deserves justice.:(
