TESTIMONIAL EUROPE 1
The prosecutor of the Republic of Nantes, Pierre Sennès, called Friday night for "caution" after the arrest of a man in Scotland who could be Xavier Dupont Ligonnès, on the run for eight years and suspected of killing his wife and four children in 2011 in Nantes. Upon his arrival in Glasgow, the suspect was checked, and according to the English police, his fingerprints match. He traveled with a passport under another identity, under the name of Joao. The investigators also carried out a search in the home located at the address entered on this passport, in Yvelines. But a testimony comes to stir trouble on Saturday morning. Jacques, a neighbor of the house searched, questioned by Europe 1, doubts that the man arrested could be Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès.
"On Friday morning he got on the plane, as he usually does, he was going back to Scotland, his wife was waiting for him in Glasgow, we had a phone call earlier, and she said 'here they are. have stopped it, I have no more news. "She is frightened, he has nothing to do, even if he has taken X years more, he has nothing to do with that face! It's a man who is tall, round face, nothing to do! ", Estimates Jacques.
"During the search, I went up to try to see a policeman, to tell them that they were planting themselves miserably, I've known him for 30 years, he was a friend. 'But stop, you make a monstrous ball.' If tomorrow the DNA test confirms that it is him, I can guarantee that there, it is not possible, "said the resident of Yvelines, still in shock from the news.
