A 32-year old man was indicted for the murder of his roommate. He was located in Perpignan. On Tuesday, he was taken into custody. Jean-David Cavaille, Perpignan's prosecutor, stated in a statement that "a judicial investigation has been opened for murder."
The victim, a man in his forties, had been discovered in the middle of the street by residents of Trouillas (Pyrenees-Orientales), bearing traces of stab wounds to the side and back.
The prosecution announced Thursday that a murder investigation was being opened after the discovery of the body a walker had left behind near Ille-sur-Tet in the same district. Jean-David Cavaille stated that the two cases have "nothing to do" each other.
