The Northern Netherlands police confirmed this on Tuesday morning. The murder of Ralf is known as the trunk murder because the badly battered body of the thirty-something was found in the trunk of his own Mercedes on March 31, 2017. It had been tried to push into a canal, but got stuck behind a steel edge of the Stieltjeskanaal.
The investigation turned out to be difficult because water that had penetrated the car had destroyed many tracks and a telephone belonging to the man from Klazienaveen. Ralf had no criminal record and the possible motive for the murder was always a mystery. Earlier, two suspects were also arrested, but they were released shortly afterwards.
The family of ‘Ralfie’ increased the tip money to 100,000 euros in February. It is not yet clear what the relationship is between Ralf and the 28-year-old suspect.
Parents overjoyed about arrest
The parents of Ralf Meinema told De Telegraaf on Tuesday morning that they were overjoyed with the arrest. Ingrid Meinema: “This morning a family detective suddenly came to tell us the news. We are of course incredibly happy. We don’t know who it is. We have been hoping for a breakthrough all these years. Hope has kept us going. ”
