On Saturday, February 19, 2022, the lifeless body of Maria Kelders was found in her terraced house on De Burg. A medical officer, the laboratory of the federal judicial police and the laboratory support team arrived on the scene. Their initial investigations showed that the woman had died as a result of severe violence. The investigation into the circumstances fell into the hands of the federal judicial police of Limburg.

After two years of thorough investigation, all avenues have been analyzed and all clues lead to one person, namely the victim’s son. However, the suspected perpetrator will never be able to be prevented, because her son, a 53-year-old resident of Hamont, took his own life in June last year. Because there are no indications of another perpetrator and the only suspect has died, the council chamber has decided to close the investigation. Although investigators cannot say with certainty that her son is the suspect. Should new elements present themselves, the research can be resumed.
