During the interrogation, the examining magistrate had gone over all the facts of the dramatic evening in minute detail. Chris V cooperated with the interrogation, and according to his lawyer was a broken man.

    Frederiek Wauters: My client has just been arrested by the investigating judge. We have not objected to that either. That introduction took a very long time, almost four hours. In terms of content, I can’t say anything about the file. These are facts that are very weighty. My client is very sorry. There was also a broken man in front of us. He naturally accepts his arrest. The facts were completely overseen by the investigating judge. I cannot say much about the content out of respect for the victims and out of respect for the family. In front of me was a broken man, that’s all I can say about that. Of course my client realizes what he has done. He deeply regrets it.
