It concerns a 34-year-old woman who lives near Utrecht. She was arrested on suspicion of murder. She has since admitted that she had an argument with the victim, a 42-year-old man. De Telegraaf reports this on Wednesday, based on information from the German police.


The victim was found dead on November 26, 2017 in his attic in Bonn. This writes the German press.

At the crime scene, the police of the German state of Nordrhein-Westfalen found DNA traces of a woman. That DNA profile turned out to be a hit in the Dutch DNA database, after a comparison with German profiles had not yielded any success.

De Telegraaf writes that it is not known why the woman’s DNA profile was in the database.

The German website Express reports that the woman did not resist her arrest by the Dutch police. The arrest took place on February 8 this year. A report from the police in Bonn shows that the chief commissioner who is involved in the case in Germany was present at the arrest. Together with a fellow detective. The suspect’s home was searched.

The German police will ask for the extradition of the woman. She was arrested on the basis of a European arrest warrant.
