Anne Faber has been found in Zeewolde

It’s been almost two weeks since Anne Faber was missing, today the case came to an expected but still very sad end. The body of the 25-year-old Anne from Utrecht was found in Zeewolde.

Rutger Jeuken, the deputy chief prosecutor, brought the bad news during a press conference. It is not yet known how Anne, who has been missing for thirteen days, has died. Her body has now been moved from the site and will be transported for research to the Dutch Forensic Institute in The Hague. Then it will be transferred to her family as soon as possible, says Jeuken. The area is reopened after the forensic investigation.

The Anne Faber case earlier today

The police searched for a “specific place” in the vicinity of the Nulderpad for Anne’s body on Thursday because there was a suspicion that her body was hidden there. This was on the instructions of detained suspect Michael P. (27). The judge decided on Thursday that Micheal P. will remain in custody for fourteen days longer since there is enough suspicion against him.

Our thoughts are with Anne’s family

Anne’s uncle states on behalf of the family that “the darkest scenario for them has come true”. “We still have many questions. What happened, why did this man walk around?” – Many in the Netherlands wonder the same.

On behalf of the family he also thanked everybody for all the support and help in the past two weeks. He also requested at the press-conference that media leave the family alone.

  1. […] October 12th Anne’s body was recovered from a park area in Zeewolde, based on information shared by Michael P. As it appears Michael had seen Anne outside the clinic and attacked her, after she succumbed he took her body and items and spread them over a large area with quite a distance from the clinic he resided. P’s attempts to cover his brutal crime complicated all efforts and made things even so much harder on Anne’s relatives who kept having hope. […]
