Police investing death of boy seal off Wassenaar woods again

Police investigating the death of a 13-year-old boy from Wassenaar have sealed off the area of woods where his body was found for a second time, according to media reports on Friday.

The body of Anass Aouragh was found on Thursday. He was reported missing on Wednesday after failing to return home from a job delivering leaflets.

His bike was found abandoned close to the woods, leading police to launch the original search.

According to the Telegraaf, the second search has been prompted by a tip-off. The cause of death has not yet been made public but police said they are not ruling out a crime.
