BRUSSELS – It has been a month and a half since 18-year-old Annick Van Uytsel from Diest was murdered, and investigators are at a loss.

All the serious tips they have received have been investigated, and every trail has been checked, but to no avail. The investigation is deadlocked.

The court is hoping to find a new trail after scientific investigation has been carried out, possibly with the help of DNA evidence.

It is still unclear whether Annick was sexually abused before her death. Her body had been in the water too long when found to be able to determine this with certainty.
