This was stated by suspect Jent S. in court in Alkmaar.
Sex with a woman
Langenberg was found dead in the dunes near Egmond aan Zee on Sunday afternoon, April 17, 2022. He was naked, covered in blood and had serious facial injuries, including broken cheekbones and a shattered nasal bone. There were also signs of strangulation.
S. said that he had sex with a woman in the dunes on the morning in question and that Langenberg appeared on the scene at some point. He is said to have looked for a place not far from the naked couple and also undressed. According to S., he approached the man when he got the idea that he was taking photos and videos of him and the woman.
“I wanted that phone, I thought that was going too far,” S. said in defense in court. When he failed to catch him, he allegedly gave Langenberg two hard blows to the head. He then allegedly took his phone and property. He sent the woman away. He threw Langenberg’s phone – later found – into the sea. He took his backpack with him.
Gay men website
The court questioned S. rigorously about the events. The woman he said he had an appointment with was never found. Nor have any traces of the messages he allegedly exchanged with her been found on his phone.
However, a report from Langenberg was found on a website for gay men that he would go into the dunes near Egmond that morning. “Let’s see if there is anything left to experience,” he wrote there.
It has been established that S. used at least one gay dating app. He refused to answer questions about his sexual orientation. “I consider that private.” But 1-on-1 contacts with men were found on his phone that appeared to be about sex. One of these contacts unknowingly took a photo of S. in a thong while making video calls.
Cum under nail
The public prosecutor suggested that S. – who is also on trial for the assault of two gay men in 2020 and 2022 – did not have a sex date in the dunes with a girlfriend on the day in question, but with Langenberg.
“I don’t think the woman you’re talking about exists at all. And your semen was under one of the victim’s nails.”
