Two children stabbed to death in Essonne: confessions made by the father?

Two children aged 3 years and 19 months were found stabbed to death during the night from Thursday to Friday, in Forges-les-Bains (Essonne). The father of the victims was taken into custody.

Two children were found stabbed to death on the night of Thursday April 11 to Friday April 12 in Forges-les-Bains, in Essonne, according to information from Le Parisien. The victims are a 3-year-old girl and a 19-month-old boy. “The bodies showed signs of stab wounds to the chest for one and to the neck for the other,” a source close to the investigation told the Ile-de-France newspaper.

Before the discovery of the two bodies, the father of the victims was transported to Etampes hospital by emergency services after a car accident in which the man allegedly hit a tree. Treated by medical staff for his minor injuries, the individual declared having stabbed his two children to death. During his confessions, he also indicated that he wanted to commit suicide according to information from BFMTV. If the man spoke while he was “under the influence of alcohol” according to Le Parisien, the 24-hour news channel indicates that the alcohol and narcotics tests carried out on the person in custody turned out to be negative. However, the results of the blood samples are not yet known.

The father specified the location where the bodies of the two victims were located: in the trunk of a car located near a recycling center close to the scene of the accident. After these confession-like statements, the man was arrested and taken into custody by the gendarmes. An investigation into assassinations was opened and entrusted to the Palaiseau research brigade and the Paris research section.
