Bloody Sunday evening at Bellefontaine. The police are negotiated shortly after 9 p.m. at the home of a couple located in this district of Toulouse, after the husband was seriously stabbed. According to our colleagues from La Dépêche du Midi, suspicion appears to be on the couple’s daughter, a 27-year-old residing in the same apartment and described as psychologically unstable.
The man, aged 70, is currently between life and death. Entering the apartment after a call from the victim’s wife, firefighters and police discovered “a young woman on her knees close to a man lying down and covered in blood” and who, reports the Dispatch, “seemed to compress a wound “. The weapon was found “covered in blood” a few meters from the victim.
An open investigation
“Followed on a psychiatric plan”, according to our colleagues, the alleged perpetrator of – or of the stab wounds – residing with his parents. A dispute would have broken out between her and her father when she had consumed alcohol, to the point that the conflict escalates and the young woman grabs a knife. Seriously injured in the left pectoral, the man was transported in absolute urgency to the echocage service of the Toulouse-Rangueil University Hospital.
Placed in custody “immediately after the facts”, according to the regional daily, the young woman has not yet delivered her version of the facts – nor her mother, a key witness in the investigation. Both must be heard quickly in the context of these investigations for attempted homicide, which the Toulouse public prosecutor’s office has entrusted to the judicial support group of the sector.
