The Willink Empire Collapsed

On October the 25th, 1977 Mathilde Willink was found dead in her bed with a bullet in her brain. Did she commit suicide? Was she murdered by the drugs mafia? Up until today her death remains a mystery.

Mathilde was the notorious and extravagant wife of the Dutch painter Carel Willink (Terneuzen 7 Juli 1938 – Amsterdam 25 oktober 1977).
