Dutch police have been digging behind the farm where they were hoping to find the remains of Willeke Dost. However, nothing has been found.
The police indicated that they have not changed their minds on who the main suspects are.
In 1992, the theory was that most likely Willeke had run away but now police think that she was murdered shortly after she disappeared. This switch in theory did not come easy. In fact, it was an uphill battle that reached the highest politicians in the country. Due to Dost’s “missing status” her case never got the priority it would have gotten if the assumption had been “possible homicide.”
Thanks to the asisstance of PI Robert van Hoove, police arrested Willeke’s foster mother(66) and her son(38). The foster father has passed away. To be continued.
Case: On January 15, 1992, Willeke Dost (15) left her foster parents’ farm early in the morning by bike. Willeke’s parents died in a fatal car crash in 1976 when Willeke was an infant. She was temporarily placed with her grandmother but grew up in various foster families until in 1986; she was placed with the foster family in Koekange. They already had a daughter and two sons. Willeke is presumed dead. In 1992, the theory was that most likely Willeke had run away but now police think that she was murdered shortly after she disappeared. They believe that the original crime scene is near the foster parents’ farm. Despite excavations in 2010 at the farm, the case remains unsolved.
