The young man identified as Nick Ulser, 15 years old, was found dead along a road in Grimbergen outside Brussels, Sunday evening. Having visited a friend who lived just a few hundred metres away, he failed to get home the same evening and the cause of his death still remains unclear.
Police investigators now believe there could be a cover up, involving a hit and run car incident and that the perpetrators might have even moved his body and made it look like a robbery that had gone wrong. The boy’s father, Kenny Ulser, told VRT News that “the investigation still has a lot to explain. It’s possible that he was moved and that an attempt was made to try and make this look like a robbery gone wrong.”
The young boy was found without his wallet. His mobile phone and house keys were found by five teenagers in a petanque play field not far from the victim.
A post mortem shows that the cause of his death was caused by serious external and internal injuries to his legs. The parents and police are pleading to the perpetrators to come forward or for possible eyewitnesses to provide any more information of what happened that evening.
