“An investigation into flagrancy has been opened for murder and attempted murder of persons charged with a public service mission”, announced the prosecution. The investigation was entrusted to the Poitiers judicial police. “One of the priorities of the investigation is how the suspect obtained a stabbed weapon”, specified Natacha Rateau, public prosecutor in Niort.

“This kind of escape attempt happens regularly, but it was impossible to foresee that this patient would be armed with a knife”, observed one of the victim’s colleagues. “This highlights the lack of resources of the hospital in general and of psychiatry in particular”, he denounced.
