Monday, 06 November 2017
The Liège Principal Crown Prosecutor, Christian De Valkeneer, said that the investigators had confirmed carrying out a thorough search of the caravan, so this new evidence has come as a surprise to him.
In the caravan belonging to Christiaan B., suspected of being the “Mastermind” of the Brabant Killers, an address book going back to 1984 has been found. It contains addresses and telephone numbers. This was reported in De Morgen on Monday, which stressed that the caravan had however been subject to police searches.
A De Morgen journalist discovered the address book in the caravan at Cerfontaine. The book contains addresses and telephone numbers for the Affligem, Erembodegem and Herdersem areas. The survivor of the killings, David Van de Steen, says that one of the eleven contacts is a far-right sympathiser, who was an amateur weapons user.
The Liège Principal Crown Prosecutor, Christian De Valkeneer, spoke of his surprise in the daily newspaper. “I questioned the investigators. They assured me that they had carried out a thorough search of the caravan.” The address book is likely to have been seized this week for closer analysis.
