The homicide investigation has only just begun.
A 41-year-old man was found dead by firearm on Monday evening in a Travelers' camp in Saint-Julien-Les-Villas (Aube).
The body was found around 7 p.m. on this land south of Troyes.
But "at this stage of the investigations, it is not possible to confirm or deny" that he was killed in the same place, said the prosecution.
“No suspect” has yet been formally identified or arrested, according to the Troyes prosecutor's office.
He hardly gave more details on the circumstances of the tragedy.
Contacted by AFP, neither the prefecture nor the firefighters could be contacted immediately.
