The police say that a second suspect was arrested on Tuesday morning for involvement in the murder of Eindhoven resident Johan van Boxtel in 2017. The suspect is a 42-year-old man from Eindhoven who was already detained in the Penitentiary Institution in Grave.
Last week, a 35-year-old man from Geldrop was also arrested in this investigation. Some time ago, the police received new information in the investigation into the liquidation of 32-year-old Van Boxtel. He was shot dead on Sunday, May 7, 2017 on the Memlincstraat in Eindhoven.
The footage of the murder showed that at least two people were involved. After the first arrest, the Large-Scale Investigation Team (TGO) continued the investigation. This ultimately led to the arrest of the second suspect.
The new suspect was detained in Grave ‘in connection with another investigation’, the police said. The investigation is still ongoing and police believe that more people may have been involved in the attack. That is why the police are asking for information from the public.
In 2018, the case received attention in investigation programs.
