Arrested a man after kidnapping and murdering a Spanish minor in France | Spain

A 31-year-old Frenchman, who was already convicted of sexual assault when he was a minor, has been arrested as a suspect in the kidnapping and murder of Vanessa, a 14-year-old Spanish teenager who lived in a town in the south of France with her family. . The prosecutor of the commune of Agen, Olivier Naboulet, gave a press conference this Saturday to explain some details of this lurid event that has shaken France, just the day when thousands of people demonstrated in the country to denounce the inaction of the public powers in the face of sexist violence. “Our first thoughts are for this young woman and her family,” Naboulet said.

Vanessa was found lifeless in an abandoned house in Birac-sur-Trec, a few kilometers from Tonneins (in the south of France), where the minor lived with her parents and two brothers. According to information in the French press, the family had emigrated from Spain only a year ago. According to the prosecutor, the Gendarmerie was alerted on Friday by the teenager’s mother, alarmed that she had not returned home after school. Thanks to the surveillance cameras, the suspect’s vehicle that Vanessa would have gotten into was detected. Once the car was identified, the agents went to its owner’s home before midnight on Friday. At that moment, the suspect told the gendarmes: “I know why you are here,” according to Naboulet’s account. The man indicated where the lifeless body of the young woman was located and was then taken into police custody during which, according to the BFMTV channel, he confessed to the kidnapping and murder of Vanessa. The prosecutor, however, could not confirm if there was sexual assault, as the forensic analyzes are still ongoing. He also did not confirm how the minor died.

After hearing the news, the mother Vanessa, under enormous psychological impact, was admitted to the hospital, according to official Spanish sources. Local media reported that Vanessa was in a special reinforcement class at the Tonneins institute for those who do not speak French as their mother tongue, as she had only been in the country for a year. The suspect had already been sentenced to 15 days in prison, exempt from compliance if he did not reoffend, for sexual assault in 2006, when he himself was a minor (15 years old). The prosecutor specified that the man was not registered in the police file of sexual offenders.
