MISSING BODY IN FREEZER COULD HAVE BEEN THERE FOR TWO YEARS

Post  LJC on Thu 12 Aug - 11:51

Detectives discovered the frozen corpse of Jean-Francois Poinard after his girlfriend Guylene Collober, 51, told her daughter "something unfortunate" had happened to him.

The 71-year-old's body is believed to have been secreted in a freezer at their home in Lyon for up to two years.

He was found in the foetal position and covered with plastic bags.

Ms Collober is said to have made the revelation to her daughter during a night out.

Her daughter told police, who found Mr Poinard's body at the flat.

Ms Collober is said to have collapsed in tears when officers arrived, saying: "I think you'll find what you're looking for."

A police spokesman said: "An initial examination suggests the body could have been there for up to two years.

"A full post-mortem examination will be carried out to discover the precise cause of death."

He said Ms Collober had been taken into custody and charged with hiding a body and that further charges would depend on the findings of the post-mortem.

Mr Poinard was a famous chef in the 1970s and 80s, and ran a series of restaurants in the French culinary capital of Lyon.

He has been described by food critics as one of the 'great names' in gastronomy

I've got a huge one, it is like the ones in the shops. You could easily get a man in there, and have room for some fish fingers

Well, he was in the foetal position, so could even have been alive when placed in there and curled himself up to keep warm.

Freezing their victims is more and more popular in France amoung amateur criminals : the Courjault affaire ( 3 new born babies in the deep fridge) was the start in 2007, some more after. But the traditionnal way still resists : last week a woman was arrested after the discovery of babies remains in her previous garden and other places after : 8 in total burried in different gardens. After that, you will never say that something is impossible, beyond human nature.
