The Nantes prosecutor firmly refutes the thesis supported by the sister of Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès according to which the murders of his sister-in-law and his nephews were only a “staged”.

Since March 13, the date of publication of her work, Xavier, my presumed innocent brother, Christine Dupont de Ligonnès has been making the rounds in the media. On the sets, she proclaims the innocence of Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès, accused of having killed then buried his wife and children under their terrace, in 2011, in Nantes, and supports the thesis according to which the family is still alive and exfiltrated in the USA. The case, which hit the headlines thirteen years ago, was never resolved since the father, the main suspect, was never found.

However, the Nantes prosecutor, Renaud Gaudeul, firmly rejects this thesis, reports BFMTV. “Nothing allows us to give judicial credence to this version,” the magistrate underlined on Thursday March 21, specifying that this would involve “the falsification of judicial acts not only by investigators, but also by the experts who carried out the autopsies and identification analyzes by genetic fingerprints, which were carried out from muscle samples taken from the bodies discovered.

For Christine Dupont de Ligonnès, the crime scene was “a set-up”. The sister of the missing person bases her interpretation of the facts on a letter sent by her brother in which he claims to work for American intelligence. Speaking to the 24-hour news channel, her lawyer admitted on March 18 that her client was probably “in denial.” “It’s hard to believe her when she disputes scientific truths about DNA and bodies, and the existence of bodies themselves. Where could we find five replacement bodies?” he justified.

The case is still ongoing. More than ten years after the events, “1,750 reports” were “received and exploited” without success by the “criminal center of Nantes”, assures the prosecutor, Renaud Gaudeul, before adding that, “contrary to what has could have been published, an imminent closure of the investigations is not on the agenda today.
