In the Honoré Longtinstraat, Frank Goes was killed on Tuesday evening with a few stabs. Two years ago, Goes was appointed chairman of the Federation of General Building Contractors (Faba). The police are still in the dark about the motive for the time being. The culprit is also on the run.
At around 6.30pm, Honoré Longtinstraat was startled by a brutal stabbing. One of the students from the dorms saw everything happening and immediately walked out. Her landlord, Frank Goes, lay there, bleeding to death after a few stabs. The young lady called the emergency services and tried in vain to resuscitate him. She herself saw how the suspect fled on foot. It would be a man of African origin. “But for the rest his face was covered by a cap and a mouth mask,” said the student, who was quite impressed after the murder.
Goes was appointed chairman of the Federation of General Building Contractors (Faba) in 2018, which is part of the Confederatie Bouw. The 55-year-old man owns a lot of real estate, including a lot of student accommodation, in Brussels. His general construction company Goes NV has been around since 1944 and is now in its fourth generation. Immo Goes is responsible for the management of the countless rooms that the man makes available to the students.
By the way, his son lives on the street where the murder took place. He may have just come from a visit to his son when he was killed. The family preferred not to respond.
It remains unclear what the exact cause of the murder is. His car has already been towed away by the federal judicial police for a trace investigation. Also on Wednesday, investigators were still busy with neighborhood research in the hope of gaining more insight into the motive and the suspect.
A figure in the neighborhood
The neighborhood is completely in shock after the stabbing. “Mister Goes really was a figure in the neighborhood,” says a local resident who rented a garage space from the real estate agent. “Everyone here knew him. He also employed a lot of people. Perhaps the cause should be sought in the real estate sector, where something may have gone wrong ”, the resident wonders.
The student who found him has nothing but praise for her landlord. “If anything, he came here to find a solution.”
