Police raid homes tied to Haarlem man found dead in car
On Wednesday the police searched two homes in IJmuiden in the search for a man believed to be involved in the death of an 18-year-old man from Haarlem. The victim was found dead in a car, across the street from a hospital in Haarlem on Monday.
The suspect was not found in either of the addresses, the police said in a statement. Investigators did seize a number of digital storage devices for further investigation.
The victim, Kemal Budak, was found dead in the backseat of a red Mercedes at the intersection of Kadijklaan and Roolandweg in Haarlem early on Monday morning. The car was parked across the street from the Spaarne hospital.
On Monday the police also did a trace evidence investigation on Betelgeuzestraat in IJmuiden, where blood was found. The police believe it may have a connection to Budak's death.
The investigation is still ongoing. The police are currently focusing on figuring out the whereabouts of the suspect.
