The investigation is continuing. While the research carried out in December had given nothing, excavations resumed Monday in the Ardennes to try to find the body of Estelle Mouzin, who disappeared in 2003 at the age of 9 and whose serial killer Michel Fourniret confessed to the murder, reports franceinfo.
According to The Parisian, these new excavations are currently focusing on “a wetland located in Issancourt, a town bordering Ville-sur-Lume”. It is in this last town that there is a house that belonged to Michel Fourniret’s sister and in which he claimed to have kidnapped the little girl.
Monique Olivier should be brought there on Wednesday
Michel Fourniret was not brought to the site of the excavations given his state of health.
On the other hand, his ex-wife Monique Olivier, who accused Michel Fourniret of the murder of Estelle Mouzin but says he does not know what the ogre of the Ardennes did with the body, should be extracted Wednesday from his cell in Fleury-Mérogis (Essonne) and be transported to the scene.
These new excavations are to last until the end of the week.
Michel Fourniret, 78, is indicted for “kidnapping and forcible confinement followed by death” in the investigation into the disappearance of Estelle Mouzin.
