The “Machiavellian” nurse and the stuntman will be tried for murders in November

Time for explanations for a horrible double crime. Olivier Mouysset, the public prosecutor of Foix confirmed that the two accused of the murders of the “disappeared of Mirepoix “, the landscape gardener Christophe Orsaz and his daughter Célia, will be judged at the assizes from November 17 to 24, 2023.

In the box, Marie-José Montesinos, a nurse described as “Machiavellian” by the civil party, and her companion at the time, stuntman Jean-Marc Vidal, will have to answer for the deadly ambush they set for Christophe Orsaz, 46, former companion of the nurse.

Beaten up and thrown in a septic tank

The 40-year-old was left for dead in a septic tank after being beaten up. As she had witnessed the crime, her 18-year-old daughter, Célia Orsaz, was shot dead.

Their disappearance, on November 30, 2017, was clarified six months later by the gendarmes of the Toulouse Research Section. Nurse Marie-José Montesinos, 55 at the time of the incident, and her lover Jean-Paul Vidal, 47-year-old mechanic and stuntman, finally confessed in June 2018, while in police custody.

The investigation established that Christophe Orsaz was beaten with iron bars by the two accused, in an isolated hamlet in the town of Bélesta, about 30 km from Mirepoix, then thrown dying in the septic tank of a house abandoned. The body of the young woman will be found ten kilometers away, in a wood near Puivert, in the neighboring department of Aude. Vidal admitted to being the shooter.

A first conviction for harassment

On May 30, the Foix Criminal Court sentenced Marie-José Montesinos to a suspended six-month prison sentence for harassing Christophe Orsaz, his former companion, a procedure triggered by a complaint filed by the gardener in 2018.

He accused his ex-girlfriend of harassing him since he left her, of having distributed photos revealing his privacy and of denigrating him to his employers.
