    The victim, aged 27, was a medical intern in a departmental hospital, according to Agence France Presse. Her body had several stab wounds. She was found on Monday, shortly after 4pm, at her home. The door was ajar and traces of blood were found in her room.

    An autopsy was performed on Tuesday and the investigation was entrusted to the judicial police of Seine-Saint-Denis, confirmed the police.

    A 32-year-old man, a migrant, was indicted for murder and detained on Thursday, AFP was told by the prosecutor’s office in Bobigny.

    The alleged perpetrator, living “in an irregular situation” in France, was born in Sudan and was arrested on Tuesday in Paris, according to a source close to the investigation.

    Le Figaro reported that suspect was the ex-companion of the young woman of 27 years. The investigators soon focused on the ex-companion, the man of Sudanese origin, because he is already known for acts of violence.

    The Bobigny prosecutor’s office and the judicial police of Seine-Saint-Denis is leading the investigation. Witnesses described him “as a man of foreign origin in his thirties, who looks rather marginal” French daily Le Parisien reported.

    Audrey Coignard, 27, who was stabbed on Monday, September 16, 2019 in Saint-Ouen near Paris, was originally from Flers (Orne). She also studied at the University of Caen (Calvados).

    She attended the medical school of Caen and accompanied the migrants of Caen and Ouistreham, in order to fight against all migrant expulsions, according to the Movement of the Caen Youth who highlighted her “rare humanity” towards foreigners.

    Audrey died as a result of no less than 14 stab wounds in her home. The scene was horrendous with the victim bathed in a pool of her own blood. She was thrust against a wall of the room. The autopsy on Tuesday allegedly revealed more about the causes of her death, but details have not yet been made public.

    She victim had a bright future ahead of her: She had continued her second year of pediatric internship at the Jean-Verdier Hospital in Bondy. “She was a much appreciated student, very committed, a very good intern who was well-liked among her supervisors. She was destined for general medicine.”

    The migrant had regularly stayed in the apartment of the young woman. Witnesses said: “Once I saw him in the street, he was singing alone and was in a bad state, I recognized him thanks to his bike,” one woman told Le Parisien.
