A burglary investigation has been opened. The events took place on the night of Sunday November 26 to Monday November 27 while the mother was answering questions from investigators.
The home of the mother of the three little girls found dead in Alfortville was burglarized on the night of Sunday November 26 to Monday November 27, while she was answering questions from the police, a few hours after the father of her children confessed to having killed , indicated the public prosecutor of Créteil.
An open investigation
“The home of the victims’ mother was visited yesterday evening during her hearing before our services” and an investigation into burglary was opened, prosecutor Stéphane Hardouin said on Monday in a statement to the press.
He assured that “significant means are being implemented to establish whether this intrusion has a link with the impact of this family tragedy”.
The prosecution does not specify where the mother of the children, separated from their father, resided, but the investigation was entrusted to the Boissy-Saint-Léger police station.
Three bodies discovered at Alfortville home
On Sunday, a man already convicted of domestic violence was indicted after presenting himself at a police station in Dieppe (Seine-Maritime), several hundred kilometers from his home, to declare having killed his three daughters aged 4, 10 and eleven years old.
At his home in Alfortville, the police found the three lifeless bodies, the two eldest with chest injuries.
“One of the two eldest was on the bed”, while the second was lying “on the living room sofa” and had injuries to her hands “resembling the grip of a blade” during defensive movements, specifies the prosecutor.
The face of the youngest child evoked “a notion of asphyxia”, therefore of strangulation.
Father’s custody extended
According to the prosecutor, “the first visual findings, in particular the remains of a meal, suggest that the events took place during the night from Saturday to Sunday possibly in their sleep”.
The father’s custody will be extended by 24 hours this Monday and he will be questioned by the police in the afternoon.
He was convicted in April 2021 for several acts of domestic violence against the mother of his children and for violence against a minor, “to the detriment of his youngest daughter”, specified Stéphane Hardouin.
Sentenced to 18 months in prison, 12 of which were suspended, he had served his sentence and was no longer supervised. Alternate custody had been put in place “at the request of the family”, underlines the prosecution.
