A young man in his twenties was taken into custody on Thursday July 21 in Lanester, Morbihan. He is suspected of having killed his mother and injured his sister with a bladed weapon.
It is a drama of rare violence. A 25-year-old man, suspected of having killed his mother with numerous stab wounds and injured his sister in Lanester (Morbihan), was arrested “without difficulty” on Thursday before being hospitalized following injuries, announced the Lorient prosecutor’s office this Friday.
27 wounds on the body of the deceased victim
The facts occurred around 2:30 p.m. Thursday when the 23-year-old sister of the respondent called the police to report that her brother had stabbed their mother with a knife and that she herself was injured, according to the prosecution, confirming information from the local press.
“Once there, the police officers got in touch with the sister of the respondent, seriously injured in the head by a stab and entrenched in her room, which was subsequently the subject of hospitalization, which is still ongoing today. “Said the assistant prosecutor of Lorient, Bastien Diacono.
The police also discovered “the lifeless body of a second victim, aged 47 and mother of the respondent, on the landing of the third floor of the building”, according to the press release. At least 27 wounds were found on the body of the deceased victim, mainly on the face and back. Two knives with broken blades and a bloody umbrella were also found.
The police custody was lifted on Friday morning, “due to a mental state incompatible with such a measure”. No history appeared in the suspect’s criminal record, the prosecutor said.
