Woman Killed in Belgium 31 Years Ago Is Identified by Her Flower Tattoo

A British woman who was killed in Belgium 31 years ago was identified this week thanks to an international campaign that began earlier this year to identify nearly two dozen women who were found dead across Europe, officials said.

The case dates to June 1992, when the body of a woman, given the nickname “the woman with the flower tattoo” by investigators, was found pushed against a grate in a river in Belgium.

She appeared to have been killed violently, according to details released this spring by the International Criminal Police Organization, also known as Interpol.

The woman’s most identifiable feature was a flower tattoo with “R’Nick” written underneath. At the time, the authorities had hoped her tattoo would jog someone’s memory.
