Details of a Belgian daycare stabbing spree emerged today as thousands marched to honor three dead and 12 wounded in the attack, the Telegraph and AP report. A photo has surfaced of suspect Kim de Gelder, a loner who sniggered during police questioning and refused to cooperate. Police believe he had an "attack plan," although he said "not a word," a prosecutor said.
Other details include:
- Gelder was carrying a backpack of weapons and had the addresses of three other daycares when police arrested him.
- Gelder deliberately targeted the youngest babies, passing over older children.
- He entered through a side door known only to parents, indicating he may have staked out the daycare.
- A Belgian day care worker died trying to save babies in her care. “She always cared for others, she was so selfless and so much loved,” a friend said.
