The police arrested a suspect in connection with the death of Nathalie Polak. The 21-year-old woman was found dead on New Year's morning after a fire in her apartment on Concorde in Buren. 

An autopsy on the young woman's body revealed that she was killed in a crime, the Gelderlander reports. There were also signs of arson in her flat.
