A body found in the US state of Virginia in 1999 turned out to be a Dutch man. After investigation and identification, it was determined that the man was a 62-year-old Dutch tourist who was visiting the United States at the time.
This is reported by the American media WRIC based on information from the Prince William County Police. The remains were found on September 28, 1999, in a creek behind 8325 Mays Street in Manassas, a 45-minute drive from Washington. The body could not be identified. A composite sketch made of the victim’s face eventually led to confirmation that he was the missing Dutchman. He was a Dutch tourist who entered the United States on September 17 of that year in Atlanta, Georgia. It’s not clear how he ended up at the site near Manassas.
An autopsy revealed that the victim died of blunt force trauma to the head, known as ‘stump trauma’. Prince William County police are now treating the case as a cold case homicide investigation and are seeking more information about the man’s death.
The Ministry of External Affairs has indicated that it is looking into the matter.
