Significant resources committed
search for members and the head of the victim was the first priority of investigators from the research section of the gendarmerie of Ajaccio. Significant resources have been committed to this operation. The identification of the victim whose torso carrier of a tattoo was larded by blows with a knife is particularly difficult, as the prosecutor in Bastia, Nicolas Bessone. Mr. Bessone said Wednesday that the victim was “a white man” and that “the only certainty is that this is a homicide and an act of particular barbarity”.
No loss was reported in Corsica and DNA from the corpse does not match a person appearing in file National DNA (FNEG). Having burnt members also prevents finding fingerprints but the discovery of the head would study the teeth of the victim, which is often used to identify a corpse.
