Police cordoned off the entire area around the hotel to ensure that onlookers couldn't see what was happening. Camera crews and photographers had taken up positions on roofs and balconies in the neighbourhood.

The reconstruction took two hours, but it's unclear whether it yielded any new evidence. So far public prosecutors and Wesphael's counsel have remained mum.
