France’s most famous serial killer raped and murdered “French Maddie” says ex-wife


The ex-wife of France’s most notorious living serial killer has accused him of raping and murdering a nine-year-old schoolgirl whose case has plagued the country for nearly two decades.Estelle Mouzin disappeared in Guermantes, 29 km east of Paris, on January 9, 2003 as she walked home from her school. His body has never been found.

The reported sightings fueled speculation that she was kidnapped and taken overseas, drawing parallels with Madeleine McCann, the three-year-old Briton who disappeared in Portugal in 2007.

Michel Fourniret, 77, already imprisoned for life in May 2008 for the murder of seven girls and young women, was charged with his disappearance at the end of last year after his wife came forward to contradict his alibi.

In March, Fourniret, nicknamed “the Ogre des Ardennes”, then made an enigmatic statement to the police saying that he had admitted that “a being is no longer there by my fault” and that the body is perhaps in the Ardennes, in the north-east of France.

This triggered a search for its former properties, to no avail.
