A woman in her forties, who worked in associations, was found dead on Thursday morning in a cell of the “zonal guard” of the Brussels-Capital-Ixelles police, rue Royale. The victim had been arrested during the night from Wednesday to Thursday in the Châtelain district, in Ixelles.

An investigation is underway into the circumstances of the arrest and detention of the forties. “The prosecution has been notified and ordered the first investigative duties”, said the Brussels public prosecutor’s office. “The magistrate, the federal police laboratory and the medical examiner descended on the spot. An autopsy has been requested. According to the first investigation duties, the death could correspond to a suicide”, he clarified. A thesis refuted by the family of the victim.

In two years, this is the third death to be deplored in this police station of the “zonal guard” of the Brussels-Capital-Ixelles police,
