Disappearance of Dominici: voluntary or accidental fall, the doubt remains


If the investigators ruled out the intervention of a third party, hearing the sole witness does not make it possible to determine whether the fall was intentional or accidental. The results of toxicological analyzes, expected this Friday, will not be enough to rule out one or other of these theses.

Will we ever know the truth about what happened on Tuesday shortly after 2:30 p.m.?

Half-heartedly, knowing the weaknesses of Christophe Dominici, most of his relatives have accredited the thesis of the suicide of a man undermined, depressed after the failure of the project to take over the club of Béziers, and the taunts against him which resulted from it.

Some have told us that, in mid-July, the former winger of the Stade Français and the XV of France had made a stay in clinic to treat his depression.

A thesis that the hearings, carried out Thursday at the Saint-Cloud police station, did not allow to accredit.

As part of the investigation ordered by the prosecution of Nanterre for "search for the causes of death", police heard the only eyewitness, a cyclist who passed near the scene of the tragedy.

Shocked, the one couldn't be heard until Thursday.

And his statements maintain the vagueness.

The witness did not see him deliberately step over the parapet

If the witness did see Christophe Dominici fall about twenty meters from a parapet near the Sully barracks, an abandoned building located in the area of ​​Saint-Cloud park, he was unable to determine whether this fall was intentional or accidental.

According to the information of the


, he saw Christophe Dominici on the sidewalk of the avenue de la Grille-d'Honneur when, suddenly, he tipped over on the right side, thus passing over the concrete parapet.

The witness did not see him step over the parapet or climb over it.

Investigators, however, have raised another doubt.

Christophe Dominici was not pushed into the void by a third party.

The witness attested to it and the report of the autopsy of the body, carried out Wednesday at the Forensic Institute of Garches, confirms it, also revealed

His widow categorically rejects the suicide thesis

This Friday, the result of toxicological analyzes will be known.

But they will not formally establish whether the fall was voluntary or the result of a loss of balance due to taking "psychoactive substances" (drugs, Editor's note), pyschotropic drugs or excessive alcohol consumption ", according to a source familiar with the matter.


Max Guazzini and the death of Dominici:" Christophe was someone I loved deeply "

His widow, also heard Thursday, rejects in any case the thesis of suicide.

She repeated it many times to investigators, pointing out that the couple had projects, businesses that were working well and were in the process of having a house built near the Domaine de Saint-Cloud.

And investigators have not found any trace of a message left by Christophe Dominici to explain any desire to end life.

The mystery of his tragic disappearance may therefore never be lifted.
