Lyon. The attacker of the ex-Miss France Marine Lorphelin declared irresponsible


Justice declared Friday the criminal irresponsibility of a thirty-something, author of the aggression of the former Miss France Marine Lorphelin and her companion, on January 1, 2018 in Lyon.

While pronouncing his irresponsibility, the magistrates of the chamber of instruction of the Court of Appeal of Lyon noted that the charges were sufficient to recognize the man of 31 years author of “harassment and attempted homicide”.

The thirty-something, however, is prohibited from coming into contact with the victims for a period of twenty years, as well as the ban on carrying a weapon for fifteen years.

“This decision is the culmination of a process of recognition of his pathology, it puts an end to doubt. Words are put on the causes of his act”, satisfied Me Maxence Pascal, the lawyer of the thirties.

An obsession developed with the ex-Miss France

At the hearing of January 29, which took place in the presence of the author and the lawyer for the civil party, the man, who is not automatically hospitalized, had, however, justified medical follow-up .

Three experts had come to the bar, concluding in a schizophrenia having abolished the discernment of the author, who did not dispute the facts.

Jobless and lonely, the young man from the Grenoble region had developed a real obsession with Marine Lorphelin, elected Miss France 2013 and first runner-up of Miss World.

He had followed her on several occasions, during miss elections, in bookstores where she dedicated her book, in front of the faculty of medicine in Lyon, where she was studying, and to her home in Lyon.

It was near his home that he had been violent, on January 1, 2018, when he saw the former Miss France with his companion. He had struck the latter with several stab wounds, seriously injuring his hand.
