Police Appeal For Help Over ID Of Mystery Blonde Woman

Police Appeal For Help Over ID Of Mystery Blonde Woman

Dutch police are making a last-ditch attempt to identify a young woman who dropped dead due to a heart defect but who was never identified despite a police operation in both Holland and neighbouring Germany.

The young woman who died in 2004 was found beside the beach in Wassenaar, a town in the western Netherlands that is an exceedingly affluent suburb of The Hague. A post-mortem revealed that she had died because she had an endemic heart defect which could have caused the death at any time. She was estimated to be around 30-years-old when she collapsed in July 2004. Using isotope analysis the forensic experts were able to discover that she was not Dutch and had not been living in the Netherlands when she died.

She was therefore either a tourist or visiting on business. Detectives who appealed for information locally and just across the border in Germany were able to find that a door key the young woman had on her indicated that she had been living somewhere in Germany at the time, although they were unable to find out where.

German detectives meanwhile said that they did not believe she was German even though she had been living in Germany at the time. She was around 60 kilos and 166 centimetres tall, and was described as athletic with dark blonde hair and blue eyes. She was also wearing a watch with a cat on it and the words Royal Canin.

Police said that anybody with information should get in contact coldcase@haaglanden.politie.nl and admitted that this was their last chance to try and solve the mystery of her identity, by releasing the pictures on the 10th anniversary of her death.
