Breakthrough in Doetinchem cold case: police think they have arrested shooter

The police believe that the gunman who shot Tonny ter Horst in 2000 was arrested on Tuesday morning. It is a 50-year-old man from Doetinchem. He is said to have shot Ter Horst dead in Terborg on October 9, 2000. This happened when Ter Horst accidentally bumped into two men who had just committed a failed robbery.

Second man

The police are currently not providing any information about the investigation because the suspect is restricted in the interest of the investigation and is only allowed to have contact with his lawyer.

Police say the investigation into the second man involved in Tonny’s death is still ongoing.

Reopened

On March 18, the investigation team announced that the case was being reopened because new information had been received. Based on this new information, the investigation team had indications that more people needed to know something about who was involved in Tonny’s death.

On March 19, a Mobile Media Lab was set up in Terborg and Opsporing Verzocht made a live broadcast from Terborg.

In the days that followed, more than 20 tips were received, including names.
