The Nanterre prosecutor confirmed the information on Tuesday morning at Point.fr . An individual has beheaded his mother on Monday night in Courbevoie around 10 pm.
It was the neighbors from the building of the town center of Courbevoie (Hauts-de-Seine), where the mother of the alleged assassin resided, who alerted the police between 9:30 pm and 10 pm. On arrival the staff of the DSPAP (the Directorate of Public Security of the Paris region), police in the Paris area, an individual 25 years of Senegalese origin, was holding the head of his mother, 54, in his hands. According to the first elements of the investigation, he decapitated and eviscerated her with a ceramic knife. Police overpowered the perpetrator after four shots with a taser. He couldn’t be interviewed by investigators because of his state of “proven dementia.” “His words were incoherent even if he invoked God – but not Allah – at one time. It is a sad news item,“ describes a source close to the investigation.
The SDPJ in charge of the investigation
The individual is now in the hospital. He was known for acts of violence committed in 2011. “The police had never had to intervene in this building before. There is no trace of the family [in that context] in the records at the police station,“ said a police officer. The SDPJ 92 – the departmental service of judicial police of Hauts-de-Seine – is in charge of the investigation.
