In Kasterlee in the province of Antwerp, a 74-year-old man was found in critical condition after an assault with a hoe, that was still in his head. The public prosecutor suspects that a fight between neighbours got out of hand.
According to the local police officer, the man had been fighting with his 57-year-old neighbour for some time. The neighbour was found dead in his own home and probably killed himself.
An investigation into what exactly happened has been opened.
