Since the arrest, the police have slowly and carefully been questioning M. M.'s brother Timo van de Lustgraaf told the newspaper that Yasmine grew up in a strange situation. She was born in Den Helder and has an older sister, whose been living on Curacao for years. When Yasmine was a toddler, her mother started a relationship with another woman, Timo's mother.
