The investigation is progressing. A 30-year-old man has been indicted for murder and aggravated theft after the discovery of the lifeless body of an 18-year-old high school student, tied up and gagged, in the family apartment near Nantes, we learned this Monday with the Nantes prosecutor's office.

Nadir, a young man described as uneventful, was discovered on August 9 at his home, La Fontaine district in Saint-Sébastien-sur-Loire, in the Nantes suburbs. The day before, he had spent an evening with friends in Basse-Goulaine. Her parents were away that weekend.

Death by asphyxiation

The autopsy shows that "a third party" intervened and that the young person died asphyxiated by "strangulation or by suffocation", declared the deputy public prosecutor, Olivier Bonhomme.

It could be a theft gone wrong.
