Judges in Nicky case: ‘Brech statement raises questions’ | 1Limburg


The statement by Jos Brech (57) in the Nicky Verstappen case raises questions, the judges said on Tuesday. Biggest question mark: how did multiple DNA traces from the fifties come into Nicky’s underpants?

Brech often fell back on the right to remain silent on Tuesday. He was referring to his recorded statement, which was shown in court on Monday.

No heartbeat
That statement: Brech found Nicky on the Brunssummerheide, checked whether the eleven-year-old boy was still alive and when he did not feel a heartbeat, he said he ‘fashioned’ the child by wiping leaves from his body and straightening his clothes. With that ‘shaping’ his DNA would have ended up on Nicky’s body.

‘Question lingers’
It is a story that the family already dealt with on Monday afternoon and that the judges also have the necessary questions about. In all, there were twenty traces of Brech on Nicky’s underpants, one trace on his pajama pants, one hair on his briefs, two dander on the victim’s chest, and a dander on his pajama pants.

“Do you understand that, in the light of your statement, this still raises questions?” One of the judges told him. “For example, how did your DNA get into the underpants of an eleven-year-old boy? That’s a question that lingers on our side.”

Close contact
The judge later even said that this “calls for an explanation.” Brech said he will stick to his statement on Monday and that he does not want to explain it further. Experts who examined the traces speak of ‘intensive contact’ between Nicky and the DNA donor, ie Brech.

“I also touched him, I corrected his clothes”, Brech said about it. Then lawyer Gerald Roethof pointed out his right to remain silent, something the suspect from Simpelveld made use of.
