Cold case team to look again at 60 prostitute murders

Rotterdam police’s cold case team is reopening the investigations into at least 60 unsolved murders in the 1980s and 1990s, the public prosecution department told Nos television on Friday.

The murder victims were all prostitutes and the killings took place in Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Groningen and possibly other locations. The investigators will look for similarities between the killings to see if any links can be made and if the same person may be responsible for more than one murder.
The investigations are being reopened because the government has made extra money available, department spokesman Ernst Pols said.
