Eroupe : Mystery solved: 96-yr-old confesses to 1946 murder

AMSTERDAM: A murder mystery has been solved – 65 years later – with the confession of a 96-year-old woman.

The 1946 killing of Felix Gulje, the head of a construction company who at the time was being considered for a high political post, roiled the Netherlands, and the failure to find the assassin became a point of contention among political parties.

On Wednesday, the mayor of Leiden, Henri Lenferink, said a woman has confessed to the killing, saying it happened in the mistaken belief that Gulje had collaborated with the Nazis.

Lenferink said he received a letter from the woman, identified as Atie Ridder-Visser, on January 1, confessing to the crime.
