A disagreement about a glass started a fight that resulted in the death of 32-year-old Jip Jurg from Rotterdam, the police revealed on Opsporing Verzocht on Tuesday. Jurg was on January 28th. He died of internal injuries.

Around 2:30 a.m. on January 27th, Jurg and a friend went to a party on Schouwburg in Rotterdam. An hour later the 32-year-old man walked outside with a glass in his hand. A security guard addressed him about this, but Jurg did not respond. The guard and two colleagues again spoke to Jurg about the glass, and it turned into a physical fight.

After the fight, Jurg walked to the corner of Aert van Nesstraat and Karel Doornmanstraat. He got into a taxi, that dropped him off at his home on Wemeldingestraat. The next day, his father found him dead in his home. 

Three men were arrested in connection with Jurg's death. A 37-year-old man from Rotterdam is still in custody, according to RTL Nieuws. A 27-year-old man from Schiedam and a 37-year-old from The Hague were released on Monday, but are still considered suspects.

The police still have many questions about what happened and call on witnesses to come forward.
