Shanon, a 13-year-old girl, died this Wednesday March 27, 2024 at the hospital where she had been admitted three weeks earlier following a rape. The main suspect, indicted, denies any “violence”.

Horror in the Oise, after the death of the young Shanon, 13 years old, who succumbed this Wednesday March 27, 2024 to injuries suffered during her attack and rape at the beginning of March in Rantigny. A medico-legal autopsy must still determine "precisely the causes of death".< /p>

He denies any "violence"

The main suspect denies any "violence", according to his lawyer, with the lawyer for the victim's family referring to a possible "act of barbarity& ;quot;. The 19-year-old man was indicted for "rape committed on a 15-year-old minor by an adult with an age difference of at least 5 years", and placed in pre-trial detention, said prosecutor Loïc Abrial, reports BFMTV RMC.

"My client had reason to believe she was older, and their relationship was mutual" , argued the lawyer for the main defendant, Me Caty Richard. "He never used any violence or coercion against Shanon", she assured , indicating "wait for medical explanations for this death".

Shanon "perhaps the victim of an act of barbarity"

According to Frédéric Le Bonnois, lawyer for the victim's family, Shanon spent the afternoon of March 6 at a friend's house, "with the agreement of the parents". The latter, aged 14, "would have contacted two older people on social networks, aged 18 and 19", who then joined at her house.

She was then raped and "perhaps the victim of an act of barbarity" because she suffered a cardio-respiratory arrest. Transported to the hospital, "she never recovered her senses, she remained in a coma" until his death, specifies the lawyer, quoted by BFMTV RMC.

An adult and a schoolgirl indicted

Another young adult and a schoolgirl friend of the victim were indicted for failure to prevent this crime. None has a criminal record. The latter was herself "subjected to forced sexual acts during this episode" reported her lawyer, Me Maxime Gallier, emphasizing that she had tried to revive her friend.

Shanon's funeral will take place this Tuesday, April 9 at 3:00 p.m. at the Cauffry church, announced the mayor of the town Virginie Garnier on Facebook, specifying that the ceremony would be reserved for relatives and students of his college.
