Two months after the last research of the body of Estelle Mouzin, the excavations will resume Monday, August 30 in the Ardennes in the presence of Monique Olivier, Franceinfo learned from corroborating sources. The ex-wife of serial killer Michel Fourniret will be extracted from his prison in Fleury-Mérogis, in Essonne, to attend the excavations in Issancourt-et-Rumel, alongside the investigating judge Sabine Khéris.
This will be the seventh and last search campaign for the body of the 9-year-old girl kidnapped by Michel Fourniret on January 9, 2003 in Guermantes in Seine-et-Marne. The serial killer, who died on May 10, ended up confessing a little over a year ago to the kidnapping, rape and murder of Estelle Mouzin.
Since then, Monique Olivier has clarified the macabre scenario of the death of the little girl and she led the dean of the investigating judges of the Paris court and the investigators to the edge of a communal wood. It was there, she said, that she waited for Michel Fourniret to bury the body of the little girl.
This final excavation campaign should last a week, in an area of 2.5 hectares. Two excavators will be deployed, in particular to uproot tree stumps, after deforestation operations last April. Judge Khéris will then have the opportunity to close this investigation and thus open the way to a trial.
