The Public Prosecution Service in Limburg is looking for the file of an old, unsolved rape case from 1990. There may be a connection with Jos B. who is on trial for the abuse and killing of Nicky Verstappen in 1998.
The OM has taken action after questions from the crime site Femke Fataal. On that site is a interview with the rape victim in 1990, a 13-year-old boy at the time.
The case was not resolved at the time. Two years ago, when the police asked for tips about Jos B., the victim went to the police with his story. He saw similarities between his rape and previous sex crimes committed by Jos B. in 1984 and 1985.
Despite promises from the police that he would be called back, that did not happen. It is unclear why. “That bothered me,” the man told the NOS. “Besides, I can imagine there are more victims.”
This morning he received a call from the police. “Strange that it is only now being investigated,” said the victim. “But it’s nice that it happens.”
It remains to be seen whether the investigation by the Public Prosecution Service will be continued. The file from 1990 is not in the archive system that the police now uses.
