BRUSSELS – The scrap container in the container park in Halen has been seized and searched as part of the investigation into the murder of Annick Van Uytsel.
The manager of the container park in Herk-de-Stad was also asked to keep a lookout for any activity around the container. Het Belang van Limburg and Gazet van Antwerpen reported this on Monday.
The seizure of the container took place last week but the news was not revealed until now. Patrick Vits, spokesperson for the public prosecution department in Louvain, says the container was searched in response to a tip that had been received by authorities.
Vits could not go into any more details about the container and whether the search yielded any clues.
He did confirm that there had been no breakthrough in the case so far. Annick Van Uytsel disappeared on 28 April after a party. Her body was found several days later in a canal.
