A septuagenarian was found decapitated in her house on Wednesday October 13. The prosecutor detailed numerous elements on the main suspect, Jean-Michel Moulun, placed in pre-trial detention.
The suspect in the murder of a septuagenarian discovered decapitated in Agde (Hérault) was indicted on Saturday for murder and placed in pre-trial detention, announced the Béziers prosecutor during a press conference. The victim’s autopsy, the prosecutor revealed, “confirms death was due to decapitation“. The 51-year-old man, a former boxer and National Front candidate for the North, was the former husband of this septuagenarian’s housekeeper.
In 2020, «the victim had fired this cleaning lady, suspecting her husband, who was kept in custody, of having stolen money from her while he was doing odd jobs at her home“, had specified the prosecutor of Béziers, Raphaël Balland, Friday. Those are the “many CCTV footage» which notably confused the suspect, as well as «many mixed DNA traces of victim and suspect“. But the man has continued, in police custody, to “say he doesn’t remember anything and has suffered for years from neurological disorders caused by boxing“, said Mr. Balland to the press on Saturday.
The prosecutor entrusted the investigating judge with the task of “to carry out all the necessary medical expertise concerning the reality and the consequences of the neurological and memory disorders invoked». «He claims to remember nothing and this is confirmed by his wife, further indicated the prosecutor of Béziers. On the day of the events, in the morning, he had gone to his psychiatrist as he was used to doing.In his house, the investigators discovered walls covered with repositionable papers. His wife clarifiedthat he needed all this so that he knew what he had to do throughout his day“. According to the prosecutor, the couple had been separated for 18 months.but she took care of it on a daily basis to make sure everything was fine».
«A fast and efficient investigation“, according to the prosecutor
Firefighters discovered the decapitated pensioner at her home in Adge around 10 p.m. Wednesday. Fifty police officers were mobilized on this case alone for three days. Less than 24 hours later, they had arrested the suspect. “We had to go very fast, insisted prosecutor Ballandbecause information essential to the investigation had been revealed in the media and could have endangered the results of the research.»
