Yassin Salhi has confessed. In custody since Friday, about to be transferred to Paris on Sunday, the prime suspect in the attack in Isère has admitted killing Hervé C. and beheaded, his employer. According to information from LCI, the 35 year old man justified his act by an insane hatred towards his boss. His motives were therefore primarily personal.
According to his statement, this murder was the trigger for his terrorist organization. Yassin Salhi would thus have tipped into a killing frenzy. It was at that moment that he would have taken his pick, would be directed to the gas company Saint-Quentin-Fallavier where he had a habit of making deliveries and would have raced to the cylinders to create a explosion. Investigators believe that he acted entirely alone.
Le Parisien understands that the suspect attacked his boss on the way between the company and the factory, a parking lot. Moreover, according to sources close to the dossier cited by AFP, Yassin Salhi and his victim had a professional dispute about two days before the attack. An employee of the company explained that the suspect dropped a pallet with the price of materials. Hervé C. would he then made a remark and the tone would be mounted.
