Owner of Amsterdam childcare facility possibly murdered on demand

DutchAmsterdam.nl — Amsterdam police this week has arrested a 31-year-old woman in connection with the murder last August of Arzu Çakmakçi-Erbas, owner of childcare facility Moeders Schoot.

Erbas was stabbed to death on August 10. She was attacked while steping into her car at a parking lot outside the daycare center she owned and operated. She died later that day at a hospital.

Two-and-a-half weeks later police arrested a suspect, Nevzat Koyak. At the time police said he was addicted to alcohol and drugs.

They also said Koyak was not related to the victim.

Amsterdam newspaper Het Parool quotes police as saying the man denies attacking Erbas, who was stabbed at least twelve times.

However, detectives says they have strong evidence that Koyak lay in wait for the woman, and that she thus was not a random victim.

Since nothing shows that Koyak knew Erbas, Het Parool writes that he could possibly have been commissioned to carry out the attack.

The paper also says that the Justice Department does not want to reveal any information about the connection between the arrested woman and Arzu Erbas. — DutchAmsterdam.nl
