Tourneppe family tragedy: children and mother found deadTuesday, 30 January 2018 15:26
The local police from the Zennevallei (Beersel/Hal/Leeuw-Saint-Pierre) police zone made the distressing discovery on Monday. The police went to the family home to inform the mother and her three children that the body of the woman’s ex-partner, also the father of the children, had been found behind a block of flats on Boulevard Louis Mettewie, in Molenbeek-Saint-Jean.
The police were attending the scene of a car fire in the basement of the block of flats there, and checked the surroundings of the building. During this inspection they found the body of the 39-year-old behind the building. He had obviously had a major fall. The suicide avenue was immediately thought the most likely.
When police from the Zennevallei police zone then discovered the bodies of his ex-wife and their three children, they put forward the hypothesis that the man may reasonably have killed them, before himself committing suicide. However, the precise sequence of events remains difficult to determine at present.
An inquest will also be opened into the death of the man, whose body will also be autopsied.
