Child porn suspect commits suicide

8th March 2011, Comments 0 comments

A suspect connected to the Amsterdam crèche paedophile case has committed suicide. The suspect was arrested after his photos were found on a computer belonging to Dutch Latvian Robert Mikelsons, the main suspect in the case.

The photos which led to his arrest showed 17-year-old girls in sexual poses. The as yet unnamed suspect was 50-years-old and had no previous convictions. He was arrested in mid-February and released two weeks later due to lack of evidence.

The Amsterdam crèche sex abuse case led to a great deal of commotion among parents in the Dutch capital at the end of last year. Robert Mikelsons was arrested in December after US child pornography investigators traced him to Amsterdam. The Mayor of Amsterdam Eberhard van der Laan held public meetings to inform parents at a number of crèches where Mikelsons worked that that he had sexually abused and photographed dozens of children. He has since admitted to sexually abusing 83 children. His 37-year-old husband, Richard van Olffen, was arrested days later for possession and distribution of child pornography. Robert Mikelsons is believed to be part of a substantial child porn network.
