RECONSTRUCTION. Suddenly shots rang out at the front door. A little later, Claudia Van der Stichelen (58) died next to her seriously injured son. And the perpetrator? Without a trace | Sint-Lievens-Houtem

Suddenly shots rang out in the otherwise quiet Sint-Lievens-Houtem. A little later that Saturday afternoon, lawyer Claudia Van der Stichelen (58) fought for her life in her beautiful front garden, with her 22-year-old son – seriously injured in the shoulder – next to her on the steps to the front door. She died, the young man survived the attack by a man in overalls. Since then, the police have been searching with all their might for the still unknown perpetrator. And: the reason why he committed such a brutal murder.
