AMSTERDAM — The man arrested over the mystery death of 12-year-old Suzanne claims that he was kidnapped along with the Drenthe girl prior to her death.

The man said Suzanne, of Tweede Exloërmond, tried to escape during the kidnapping drama.

She was found dead last week on the Valtherdijk at Valthermond. Police said the girl had died in a traffic accident.

But Suzanne's bike and bag were found at a different location than where her body was discovered.

The bike was undamaged, but the girl's body was badly mutilated.
 
Police arrested the 45-year-old Nieuw Buiner on Friday. He is the owner of the camper van that police suspect was involved in the accident.

But the man denies any wrongdoing, his lawyer said on Monday.

Police have questioned the suspect several times. His house has also been searched.
