A week after the death of Mélanie Lemée, a 25-year-old gendarme mowed down by a driver wanting to avoid a traffic check, nearly 2,000 people paid tribute to Aiguillon.
The emotion was particularly strong in this small town of Lot-et-Garonne where the young woman officiated. "We do not want to forget Melanie, responded Christian Girardi, the mayor of Aiguillon. I think that during the next municipal councils we will propose to baptize a street in his name. "
The suspect was charged with "intentional homicide on a person holding public authority" and provisionally incarcerated.
