Mitch Henriquez' body is returning to Aruba. The plane carrying his remains left the Netherlands on Tuesday afternoon. A spokesperson for the Arubahuis in The Hague confirmed this to NU. Henriquez will be buried in Aruba on Thursday. "Given the way that Aruba sympathies with the case, I expect that the Arubans will attend the funeral en masse to express their support to the family", the spokesperson said to the newspaper. Henriquez passed away last weekend. The preliminary results of the autopsy show that he likely died due to a lack of oxygen, which he suffered after his arrest at the Night at the Park music festival in Zuiderpark, The Hague.
