Police arrested Halman’s 22-year-old brother. His name is not being made public at this time, in compliance with Dutch privacy rules.
“He is under arrest and right now he is being questioned,” Rotterdam Police spokeswoman Patricia Wessels told The Associated Press. “It will take some time to figure out what exactly happened.”
No charges have been filed in the case.
Halman was born in the Dutch city of Haarlem.
