BRUSSELS — Police and prosecution authorities were out in force in Liège on Tuesday for a partial reconstruction of the disappearance of step-sisters Stacy and Nathalie.
The reconstruction took place in the area where the bodies of the two girls were found last week in the Liège city district of Vivegnis.
Authorities were trying to discover how the bodies were taken to the place where they were discovered.
The reconstruction involved federal police officers, the disaster victim identification team and the public prosecution office.
The operation started at the site which offers the easiest access to the area where the girls' bodies were eventually found.
A security zone around the area was to be expanded as the day progressed in a bid to possibly find more clues or evidence.
Police took two dolls to the area to try and find out how two small girls could be brought to the area. The place where Stacy and Nathalie were found was overgrown with blackberry bushes and undergrowth.
The reconstruction had nothing to do with the statements of suspect Abdallah Ait Oud. He has not been questioned for several days and will not be interrogated again until the results of the DNA analysis are completed.
The results from the DNA tests are not expected until Thursday, but fears have been expressed that the tests may not be conclusive given the fact the girls' bodies were in the water for more than two weeks before they were found.
