On Sunday, the body of a 32-year-old man was found in a field in Villers-le-Temple, between the cities of Huy and Liège in Wallonia. Four suspects have been apprehended, and there are strong indications that they had homophobic motives. The case is causing commotion both in Wallonia and in Flanders.
The man had gone missing one week before his body was discovered in Liège province. "The victim left a bar and was approached by four men in a car. He entered the car voluntarily. A couple of hours later, nothing was heard of him and a friend informed the police", Danièle Reynders of the Liège judicial authorities explains.
The four suspects have all been apprehended. Just like the victim, all four are of foreign descent. According to the suspects, the victim "made advances".
