Police are saying that psych clinic manager Rob Zweekhorst (44) from Berkel en Rodenrijs, who was shot at close range on the 1st of January, may have been a victim of mistaken identity. 

After two-and-a-half months of investigations into the mystery of Zweekhorst's murder, including an SMS blast sent round to residents, the police has strong indications that the shooter made a mistake when he shot Zweekhorst close to his home in Berkel en Rodenrijs.

The police also has an idea of who might have been the murderer's target: someone who is known with the police to be caught up in fraud and other financial crimes.

This comes from a police spokesperson, who explained it in the Tuesday edition of Opsporing Verzocht. The police is not giving out the possibly intended victim, but is instead focusing on who it is that wants this person out of the way.

The murder of Zweekhorst has puzzled the police for some time. Local residents also reacted shocked. In his private life, and at work, no indications were found for a possible motive for the murderer.  Police say nothing points to the possibility that the man had "conflicts or dubious contacts."

Zweekhorst worked at the GGZ psychiatric clinic in Amsterdam for almost 9 years. In his private life, he was a father and a husband.
