The fire destroyed a farmhouse in Elen (Limburg province). A 65-year-old man tried to get his wife (61) out of the inferno, but she died on the spot. It now turns out that the victim had multiple injuries, and that she died before the fire broke out.
The local police of Maasland and federal detectives have joined forces to solve the matter. An investigation has been started for murder and arson, but nobody has been apprehended yet.
