The police received three anonymous letters in the investigation into the murder of 31-year-old Ralf Meinema, who's body was found in the trunk of a Mercedes pulled out of the Stieltjeskanaal in March last year. Investigators are looking for the writers of these letters, the police said in a statement.
The Dutch authorities offered a 15 thousand euros reward for information that leads to an arrest in the murder of Ralf Meinema. The 31-year-old man from Klazienaveen in Drenthe was found murdered in the trunk of a Mercedes, which was half submerged in the Stieltjeskanaal between Zandpol and Coevorden in March last year.
The police identified the man found murdered in the trunk of a car pulled from the Stieljteskanaal on Friday morning as a 31-year-old resident of Klazienaveen. According to Dagblad van het Noorden, he is Ralf Meinema, a freelancer in the field of excavation who bought his home in Klazienaveen less than a year ago.
