REPORT. In this Hainaut village, the horror house of Dutroux falls to the ground: “We want to turn the page”

With white suits against the asbestos and with the help of a crane, four workers in Sars-la-Buissière in Hainaut have been demolishing Dutroux’s house since Monday morning. Almost 27 years after Julie and Mélissa were found lifeless in the village of only 830 inhabitants. “For years we were an unintentional attraction for disaster tourists. That had to stop.”
