Citing the public prosecutor, Belgian media said Alfred Gadenne, 71, the conservative mayor of Mouscron, an industrial town of 57,000 just across the border from the northern French city of Lille, was found dead in a graveyard close to his home where he acted as caretaker and locked the gates each night.

Local news service SudInfo, citing unnamed sources, said a suspect had handed himself in to police and that the motive was unclear. The case was handed to a local prosecutor rather than to national counter-terrorism investigators.

The 'son of a fired public sector worker' seems to be pure speculation. The '18 year old arrested' seems speculation also.

Someone was arrested but the rest is completely unknown. The above could be true. Could not.

Althought this has apparently shocked Belgium politicians they Flemish media seem to be not giving it much priority.

Public broadcaster RTBF said the suspect was 18 and told police he was avenging the death of his father, who killed himself in 2015 after losing his job as a local council employee.

 

Seems a long time to wait?
