The Belgian, German and Dutch police are jointly launching a call for testimonies in order to identify the bodies of 22 women and young women.
Set up in collaboration with the International Criminal Police Organization Interpol, the operation is called “Identify Me” and is supported by some famous women from the participating countries like Axelle Red or Veerle Baetens.
To support them in their mission, its three instigators have brought together the 22 wanted notices on a single website accessible to all: https://www.interpol.int/IM.

The Belgian police report that seven of the 22 files concern them directly. These files contain a series of information such as facial reconstructions, videos and photos of the jewelry and clothing worn by the women at the time of their death, clues such as approximate age, hair color, eye color, etc

The website https://www.interpol.int/IM therefore allows them to broaden their research environment and perhaps attract the attention of family members, friends or other acquaintances of these women outside the borders.
