BRUSSELS — After talks with the Liège public prosecution office, the father of Stacy Lemmens is convinced his seven-year-old daughter was murdered by Abdallah Ait Oud.
Thierry Lemmens said the fact that Ait Oud — the only suspect in the case — allegedly lied about the cuts and abrasions on his hands and back was the deciding factor.
The abrasions on the suspect's wounds were made by blackberry bushes, newspapers 'Het Laatste Nieuws' and 'La Dernière Heure' reported on Friday.
The reports pointed out that there are no blackberry bushes near the house of Ait Oud's girlfriend. The convicted child sex offender claims he injured his hands and back climbing into his girlfriend's house.
Blackberry bushes were found, however, along the railway where the bodies of Stacy and her 10-year-old step-sister Nathalie were found on 28 June.
Meanwhile, the Liège public prosecution office was awaiting the results of a new series of DNA tests on Friday.
"If they don't find any DNA evidence, that certainly doesn't say that Abdallah is innocent. Investigators guaranteed me that there is sufficient other evidence against Abdallah," Lemmens said.
