Fresh body parts found in West Flanders

More human remains have been discovered in the Kortrijk area. They are believed to belong to a woman who went missing last February.

The latest body parts have been recovered from a water purification centre in Wevelgem.

Earlier body parts were found in a stream in the village of Moorsele. The find included a woman's head that had been wrapped in a plastic bag.

News of the new discovery has been confirmed by the Kortrijk public prosecutor's office. The 42-year-old woman went missing in February when she was walking her dog. Her boyfriend was detained and first made a confession, but later retracted. His lawyer said that he had been pressurised by the police.

The woman's younger boyfriend had to be released due to lack of evidence.
