Police Arrest 2nd Suspect in Case of Isolated Dutch Family

Police arrested a 58-year-old man who rented the property.

Local television station RTV Drenthe earlier said the Austrian man, identified only as Josef B, the father and the captive family were all part of South Korea's controversial Unification Church, dubbed "Moonies" after their late founder Sun Myung Moon.

Brunner tempted fate when he let Jan Zon van Dorsten out into the public to help his business.

Police investigating the thriller of a household of six stated to have spent 9 years locked away on a Dutch farm ready for the "end of time" have arrested the daddy of the group.

The second arrest followed a Dutch court extending the detention period of the first suspect, Josef B., following an appearance in court on Thursday.

Van Dorsten was found in medical distress on Monday after the eldest of his six children, aged 18 to 25, ventured into the nearby village of Ruinerwold and shared his family's tale of apocalyptic isolation. There was a large amount of cash found within the property.

In a statement, police said they were investigating whether the lifestyle of the eight people on the farm was connected to a particular philosophy of life or religious conviction.

Brunner's family told reporters they had not had contact with him for a decade, as they believed him to have joined a cult after leaving military service. The 67-year-old man said he is the father of the group. "At one point he got some insane ideas in his head, but nobody in the family wants to talk about that".

You could also lift a person's finger and put it on a fingerprint reader, but at least you have to touch the victim to do that. The Pixel 4 and 4Xl both smartphones features Motion Sense and face unlock technology based on Google's Soli radar chip.


Van Dorsten was was active in the movement in Germany and Austria and later married an Austrian woman, Koetsier told the paper. The mother died in 2004.

Former neighbour Sandra Van de Kamp Soer told De Telegraaf that she lived next to them when they resided in the town of Hasselt, up until approximately 15 years ago.

One of van Dorsten's sons Endino lived above the unit with his wife and two children. Local reports said motion detectors and security cameras had been installed on the farm.

The Dutch family that lived on a secluded farm for almost a decade waiting for doomsday were likely held there against their will, according to authorities, who announced that the clan's father was taken into custody this week.

"A number of children were not registered with the civil register". It said in a statement issued in NY that it was "deeply alarmed to hear of the family being held in inhumane conditions on a farmhouse in the Netherlands". He has had several social media accounts running for the past few months.

The work was in progress when police took him into care and swooped on the farm house.

According to the Daily Mail, the cops are also examining "possible satanic links" as some of the uncovered evidence allegedly points at "occult practices", with the key element of this investigation being a white board with odd drawings and numbers scribbled on it.
