takes stock of the first elements of the investigation.

How were they discovered?

It was this Tuesday, at the start of the afternoon, around 3 p.m., that the macabre discovery was made by a public finance officer in charge of the estate of a man who died in 2015. In the cellar, he discovered three small buckets, filled with liquid, inside which are the bodies of three babies.

According to the first elements of the investigation, the pavilion belonged to Jean-Paul A., a former gynecologist, who died in 2015 at the age of 74.

Shocked, the witness who made this sad discovery was taken care of by the firefighters.

What do we know about these bodies?

According to our information, two of the bodies found are in a fossilized state, while the third is in a good state of preservation.

They will be transported to the forensic institute of Garches to be autopsied.

A forensic scientist will have to determine if these are precisely fetuses or babies, and how long they have been in this cellar.

If the investigation is only in its infancy, many questions are already being asked.

What are the circumstances of these deaths?

Who are the parents?

The magistrate on duty went on site, as did the officers of the Hauts-de-Seine judicial police responsible for shedding light on this case.
