The case had marked the spirits. Étienne Mary, 21, had been missing since falling asleep in a garbage container a year earlier in Toulouse. On the night of August 29 to 30, 2019 exactly, after a party, the young alcoholic man entered a container on rue Matabiau and did not come out before the garbage collectors passed. Footage from a CCTV camera attests to this. Garbage collectors then emptied the contents of the container into the incinerator and the student was never seen again.
After investigation, justice was not retained of infringement and closed the file without follow-up. No criminal proceedings have been initiated. And according to France Bleu Occitanie, the family, which never came forward, also did not initiate a civil lawsuit to seek compensation.
