Seine Maritime. A man suspected of murder with acts of barbarism indicted


A 31-year-old man, suspected of the brutal murder of a 25-year-old boy who has been missing since the end of September, was indicted on Saturday for “acts of torture and barbarism” and “murder” and placed in pre-trial detention, said the Evry prosecution.

A woman suspected of being his accomplice was also indicted on the same counts and imprisoned, the prosecution said.

The suspect was arrested on Monday near Rouen where the body of his victim was discovered, we learned from a source close to the case.

The victim, Marwane Souidi, living in Lagny-le-Sec (Oise), had not heard from his family since September 21, after an evening spent with one of his friends in Arpajon (Essonne).

Rave parties

The family had declared his disappearance in the Oise before the prosecution of Evry was seized and opened a judicial investigation for kidnapping and forcible confinement.

The investigation is then entrusted to the PJ of Evry where a group of 8 investigators gets down to business. A very close-knit group, “old-fashioned, with a real culture of crime” and both “great responsiveness” and the use of all techniques, listening in particular, to find traces of the young man , underlined the source close to the investigation.

“It was on a very small signal that they were able to trace the suspect who had gone green near Rouen,” she explained. Immediately, they rushed near Rouen to challenge him.

The sordid story takes place in an environment of Rave parties where synthetic drugs circulate in the evenings. According to the first elements of the investigation, the victim was the sufferer of the suspect, portrayed as being able to become very quickly ultra violent.

Beaten by his executioner, Marwane Souidi died of strangulation as revealed by the autopsy of his body.

Body in a plastic trunk

For two months, the suspect will move the body, from his car to a cellar, to elevator pits. It is also in an elevator pit that the investigators discovered Thursday near Rouen his body locked in a plastic trunk.

The technical and scientific police screened a total of five scenes. “Hours and hours of commitment on their part”, greeted the source close to the file.

In this case, more than half a dozen people were arrested, in addition to the main suspect and his companion.

Marwane Souidi’s family had multiplied calls for testimony on social networks.

On Saturday, she posted a message on Twitter to announce the discovery of the young man’s body.

A source close to the case stressed the importance of the involvement for days and days of investigators from the Judicial Police to resolve such a case, expressing alarm at the reform in preparation for the PJ which would put wrong, according to her, such a commitment.
