The body was discovered on September 22, but the information has not been revealed until recently. The scientific investigation made it possible to identify the victim, a septuagenarian who lived with the former tenant of the apartment.
The latter would suffer, according to Het Gazet Van Antwerpen, from Korsakoff syndrome, a disease that causes memory loss, and would have been interned. His hearing would not have clarified the facts.
The prosecution did not wish to comment on the progress of the investigation, which is still ongoing.
