A hiker and his dog found a body in the woods near Ermelo on Thursday afternoon. The body had been there for some time. The cause of death is still unclear, but in such cases, the police assume a crime, officer Ruud van Nieuwenhuizen said to De Gelderlander.

The body is in an advance stage of decomposition, making it harder to determine the cause of death or even the identity of the victim. "The body has been in the woods for a long time. It's probably a man, considering the clothes", Van Nieuwenhuizen said to the newspaper.
