Mystery around the disappearance of a couple in France

The investigation opened after the disappearance, at the end of November, of Kevin Trompat and Leslie Hoorelbeke in Deux-Sèvres, in the center of France, is moving towards the criminal track, announced Tuesday the parquet floor of Poitiers in a press release.

The prosecution of Niort has indeed relinquished “on December 27” of the file for the benefit of the “pole of criminal investigation of Poitiers”.

“The legal qualification retained at this stage, in the state of the disappearance of Ms. Leslie Hoorelbeke and Mr. Kevin Trompat, and without news from them, is a qualification of a criminal nature (arrest, kidnapping, detention or sequestration , committed against several people and without voluntary release before the 7th day)”, specifies the parquet floor of Poitiers in its press release.

The research section of Poitiers is responsible for the investigations.

The young couple has not given any sign of life since the night of Friday 25 to Saturday 26 November. After spending the evening with a friend in Prahecq, a town in the Niort countryside, they had to sleep in the neighboring house of another friend, who had joined a rave party.

A call for witnesses was then broadcast on social networks and a judicial investigation opened for “disturbing disappearance”.

At the beginning of December, the discovery of the belongings belonging to the couple in a recycling container in Puyravault (Charente-Maritime), including the young man’s road safety certificate (BSR), came to thicken the mystery around their disappearance a little more.

The parents of Kevin Trompat had already evoked the hypothesis of a kidnapping and a sequestration in the press.

The evening of his disappearance, Kevin Trompat had nearly 10,000 euros in cash on him, according to his mother-in-law Karine Prat.

During a beat organized last Thursday in Prahecq, the latter had her car and her house robbed, she told an AFP correspondent.

Kevin Trompat was to go to Bordeaux the next day to buy a car, according to her.
