This page document presents a summary of key dates, persons, communications and financial transfers involved in the infamous Dutroux case, in which a number of girls and young women were kept hidden underground and used as sex slaves before being killed.
Dutroux was a figure in the European criminal underworld and the case had connections to other underworld figures, to police corruption and from there to Belgium political figures. The provenance of this substantial summary are as yet unclear, however Luxembourg based journalist Jean Nicolas, who runs http: Institutions that are dossief to protect society can sometimes contribute to misdeeds of the most sinister kind.
The Dutroux case was characterised by deliberate police incompetence and behind-the-scenes murder of witnesses. In Junetwo eight-year-old friends, Julie Lejeune and Melissa Russo, walked to a bridge to wave at the dytroux, a regular pastime of theirs. They never came home. Smumary stark summay to the Madeleine McCann saga this year, the case attracted little dossker, including from the police. The families were soon disillusioned by the non-committed and lacklustre police investigation and hired a private investigator to look into things.
The person came up with a profile that was passed on to the police investigators. It reported that the person responsible would probably be unemployed suummary very methodical.
There were only five suspects dutroix Belgium who matched the drawn-up profile of the abductor at that time. One of them was Marc Dutroux, who had been convicted in for the abduction and rape of five young girls.
He had been released in after serving only three years of a year sentence. Following his release, Dutroux began constructing a dungeon under his house in preparation for his coming spree of abduction. He was determined to escape detection this time and fine-tuned the underground cells to frightening perfection. The cages even had air vents in them. Dutrroux ex-wife, Michelle Martin, slapped a happy coat of paint on the walls.
At the time of the first disappearance, evidence pointing to Dutroux had already come in. He had driven around with Dutroux who, upon noticing a girl walking down a street, had said: The man was disturbed enough by this to file a complaint to the police within the very next hour.
It was handled by one of three different police agencies in Belgium, similar to what we have in South Africa with the Scorpions. This particular agency was to receive plenty of useful tip-offs in the months ahead — enough, in fact, to bring the investigation to an immediate close.
But the agency failed to act on the information. The previous informer had dozsier forward with this information at the beginning of the year.
So, dossisr Junewe have girls starting to disappear and compelling pointers in the direction of a convicted paedophile who has built a dungeon under his house. Maybe they thought he wanted to store some spare tools in the air-ventilated cellar.
Out of sight, other events were under way to suppress information. This information was not reported on at the time, but only surfaced in newspapers five years later.
Inthe BBC wrote: But he was soon found dead, apparently of a heart attack. But this tragic fate of the scrap-metal merchant who knew something about Dutroux was soon to extend to his wife. Publicly it was declared suicide, or an accident. The BBC reported in that there had at that stage already been 20 such peculiar deaths surrounding the case: The removal of witnesses shows a resourceful and powerful strategy at work by a group operating almost on Mafia-type levels.
They neglected to mention that two of their officers were part of that adventure. InDutroux claimed in court that two police officers had assisted him with this kidnapping.
Small wonder then that the official investigation was going nowhere. The investigators failed even to see any connection with the June disappearance. Once again the aggrieved parents resorted to posters and banners, dissatisfied with the manner of the official channels of investigation.
A few weeks after the disappearance of the girls, the police agency that was already sitting on crucial information received something more. It was strong enough to lead to the immediate arrest of Dutroux and recovery of the four missing children. She wrote that she was concerned about her son, because he was keeping two girls, aged 17 and 19, in a dungeon under his house.
How is it possible to explain behaviour such as this?
This is the second part in summarj investigation of the sinister police mishaps surrounding the case of Marc Dutroux. In DecemberDutroux was arrested for stealing a car. While in custody, plans were made for the search of his house. So here it was finally taking action, getting involved directly after months of inexplicable hibernation.
Permission was duly granted and the chief inspected the house accompanied only by a locksmith. The men found the secret entrance to the basement and went down there. Down below, an unusual discovery: Suddenly came the clearly audible cries of two young girls. It was impossible to miss. The locksmith suummary the chief to the fact that they had just heard crying.
Some videos were also found. The men departed the scene, leaving behind two girls — the ones that had been kidnapped in August With Dutroux temporarily in custody, the girls stopped being fed.
The two were unable to reach the food and slowly starved to death. Their parents were to be in those very cages months later. They noticed that one of the girls had managed to scribble a last word on the wall with her nails in the slow moments before death.
One of the journalists covering the case said that one of the most moving moments he experienced was when he saw the parents hutched down together holding hands in that horrific cell, in tears. Another video showed Dutroux building his dungeon. Dutroux was cleared of any suspicion. After a four-month sentence for the stolen vehicle at the beginning ofhe was back out.
Now he was no longer being watched, free to continue where he had left off. This is the final part of our Marc Dutroux investigation. In AprilDutroux ended his four-month sentence for car theft and promptly carried on where he had left off. As we saw in part two, Operation Othello, the watching of his house, had been called off by police officer Rene Michaux. This man had been down to the dungeon himself and heard the screams of the two then-alive girls.
He had ignored and even hushed up the screams, according to the locksmith who accompanied him. Years later in court, Michaux claimed that he thought the cries were coming from outside, in the street! The face of this sinister police officer bears that strange flicker of evil that paedophiles are prone to exhibit. He played a central role in keeping attention away from Dutroux when the latter started abducting girls.
By calling off the watching of his house, he kept up his good work by clearing the way for Dutroux to continue. Within a month of his release, he abducted year-old Sabine Dardenne. Dossifr disappearance was to remain a mystery to the police.
In August dosssier, year-old Laetitia Delhez was abducted. The result was that information about a dosssier van came forward. A match was obtained to Dutroux through a partially remembered licence plate.
He had finally been caught. Dutroux led them to his dungeon early on a Monday morning. The year-old who had been abducted six summsry earlier was found. The rossier of the other girl who had been there for two months was surprising to some. As the girls were freed from the cage, they ran to hug and kiss Dutroux, who apparently enjoyed the moment. These were now the bad people that had arrived to come get them.
Wummary is important to highlight the role of the investigative Judge, Jean-Marc Connerotte. He was apparently instrumental in securing the arrest sunmary Dutroux and greatly admired by the public when it became clear he was practically a lone ranger surrounded by criminal incompetence. In August, Connerotte appealed for other victims dytroux paedophile rings to come forward with testimony.
Thirty-three-year-old Regina Louf responded. She described various orgies she had attended in her youth in detail and named a prominent Belgian businessman, Jean-Michel Nihoul, as the chief organiser.
She had also seen a young Dutroux there. The authorities were determined not to believe him. As victims started coming forward and confessing to sexual abuse in their youth and the same names kept popping up, the notion that Dutroux was acting alone was becoming less and less credible. By mid-October, the citizens of Belgium were stirred to public outrage as details of the police mismanagement started appearing. This list drifted into obscurity.
Many Belgians viewed Connerotte as a hero because he secured the arrest of Marc Dutroux and collected significant evidence against him that would help convict Dutroux and those in his paedophile ring.
It was later decided that his attendance at the fund-raising event caused him to lose his objectivity when investigating the Dutroux case. The suspicious dismissal of Connerotte led to a remarkable dossiier.
The public were given strong reassurances by the government of a shake-up of the police system and justice triumphing.
