bredene - The 31-year-old man who after the murder of his ex-girlfriend threatened to jump fourteen high, turns out to be professional 'Clown Tobi' who also worked as CliniClown.
To the children he left behind, Kevin L. said: 'Now I am really a crimi-clown. Now I'm going to be famous. '
On Monday afternoon the man walked around for hours on the roof of an apartment building in Bredene. He shot in the air, threw gas bottles, and threatened everyone who came closer. The night before, he had killed his ex-girlfriend Caroline Dombrecht (46) with a knife, and her children clumsily left behind in the attic, writes Het Nieuwsblad.
Kevin visited his ex on Sunday evening in Oudenburg. Their relationship was just a few weeks away. 'Clown Tobi' as he calls himself, had been together for a year and a half with the rose grower. But the relationship between him and her three teenage children of eleven, thirteen and seventeen years was bad. The woman would eventually have chosen for her children.
'He always said that the relationship had been unsuccessful,' say several of his acquaintances to the newspaper. 'He claimed he could not even eat at the same table with the children. Kevin did not seem depressed by the break in recent weeks. He made plenty of future plans for his clowns company. '
