The body of a 24-year-old woman, raped and killed, was found Sunday, July in a department in southwestern France. A 32-year-old suspect, a Syrian political refugee, was indicted and imprisoned on Saturday, 13 July.
For those in favor of massive immigration, the case is disastrous news. On Saturday, July 13, a Syrian political refugee was indicted and imprisoned in Mont-de-Marsan, according to the prosecution. He is suspected of murdering and raping a 24-year-old woman whose body was found the previous Sunday.
The 32-year-old man, who was arrested on Thursday morning by the judicial police in Mont-de-Marsan, denies the facts, but “genetic elements” collected on the body of the victim, Johanna Blanes, pinpointed him as he had been registered in the national automated DNA file.
In addition, the investigators found at his home the victim’s personal belongings, including her mobile phone. In fact, the Syrian refugee carried the SIM card of the device on himself.
According to the prosecutor of Mont-de-Marsan, Olivier Janson, the suspect was known to the police “for acts of domestic violence”. Three men living in the same place as him were released from custody. They were placed there as part of investigations “to verify if the facts were likely to have been committed by a plurality of authors” added the prosecutor.
The three individuals will however, according to the prosecutor, have to leave French territory for reasons of their “illegal situation”.
The Syrian refugee was finally presented to an examining magistrate on Saturday and indicted for “murder preceded by rape” and detained on remand, the prosecutor said in a statement.
On Sunday morning, July 7, the body of Blanes was discovered by a passer-by in a pedestrian tunnel under a railway linking Mont-de-Marsan to Saint-Pierre-du-Mont.
According to Olivier Janson, the autopsy established that she had suffered a “mechanical asphyxia”, corresponding to a strangulation.
