The scene was ultra-violent. And the dramatic outcome. An investigation for voluntary homicide was opened after the death of a fifty-year-old man in the night from Sunday to Monday in his house near Dunkirk (North), we learned from the prosecutor's office.
According to a police source, this woman explained that the couple had been woken up by burglars present in their room. She then quickly left the scene with her 20-month-old baby, while the man remained in the pavilion. She alerted police around 4 a.m., the source said.
The man was found by the police, lifeless in a room on the first floor, stabbed several times, she added. Despite a cardiac massage, the 51-year-old could not be brought back to life. He was a professor at ULCO (Université littoral Côte d'Opale), say our colleagues from Nord littoral. A crisis unit has been opened for students and teachers. "He was a charming, hyperdynamic and very competent colleague," a colleague of the victim told La Voix du Nord.
