    squareearth Unidentified girl found 1976 in the Netherlands could be from Poland or Germany



    Who is she?


    The Utrecht police received seven new tips about the Heul girl, het heul meisje, the young woman who was found dead in parking lot The Heul Maarsbergen in 1976 . It is still not known who she was.

    Because of one the tips leads to Poland, the Polish television will soon pay attention to this case, says a police spokesman.

    Bizarre twist
    The naked body of the woman was found on 24 October 1976 by a forester in the parking lot along the A12. How she died is unknown. It was clear that she was dead for several weeks or months. Research has shown that the girl was between 15 and 18 years old when she died.

    The girl was buried in a tomb in Maarn. It was thought it were the remains of Monique Jacobse Bilthoven. Jacobse disappeared in 1975 at the age of 18, after she had run away from home. Her name was also on the grave in Maarn.

    In 2006, the case took a bizarre twist when Jacobse contacted her sister. She said she went to Germany. Eventually she emigrated to the U.S., without contacting her family. After over 30 years she notifed her relatives she was in the U.S.

    Reconstruction
    In late 2006, a three-dimensional reconstruction of the face of the Heul girl was made.

    After the AVRO program Opsporing verzocht, showed the reconstruction of the face, a man called saying he thought he recognized the girl.He gave her a ride in the summer of 1976 when he drove home from work. She was in the company of a man. They left his car near the parking lot the Heul. The two spoke german with eachother. The tip did not lead to the identification of the murdered woman.

    Although the murder of the Heul girl now barred time and no offender could be convicted, a cold case team of police in Utrecht has recently reopened the case. Since then, many tips were received.

    Yesterday TROS Missing reported six missing women from different countries could match the description of the Heul girl. The cold case team is now trying on the basis of DNA profiles to find out who she is. A new technique using isotopes to demonstrate in what environment the girl lived at the time.

    '' We hope with new tips and new research this girl will have a name,'' said a police spokesman.

    Police in the Netherlands and Germany are to carry out a search of DNA databases as they try to solve a 40-year-old murder case, Nos reported on Monday.The naked body of a girl was found in a car park in Maarsbergen, near Utrecht, in October 1976, but despite numerous appeals the victim has never been identified. Police say the girl, thought to be 12 to 15 years old, had been dead for several months when she was discovered.Two leads in the case indicated a possible German connection. A taxi driver said a drunken passenger had told him the woman came from the Ruhr city of Essen, and another witness said he had given a lift to the victim and a man, both of whom spoke German.In 2006 a 3D reconstruction of the girl’s head was made in a fresh bid to identify her. The Midden-Nederland police division set up a cold case team and the murder has featured in the police appeal show Opsporing Verzocht and its German equivalent.Dutch and German authorities have now given police permission to search DNA databases to see if they can find a match for the victim. ‘It could be a missing person or someone who has been in contact with the authorities,’ Wim Perlot of the cold case team told Nos.The victim is known as the Heul girl, after the car park where she was found. Checks on her bones and hair indicate she had spent the first seven years of her life in the Ruhr area of Germany.
