Ce mercredi 20 mars 2024, la chambre de l’instruction de la Cour d’appel de Dijon a demandé de nouveaux actes d’enquête dans le cadre de l’affaire Gregory, retrouvé mort en 1984 dans la Vologne.

One of the biggest French criminal cases is experiencing a new twist. It has been almost 40 years since the mystery hovered over this never elucidated investigation, but this Wednesday the justice system ordered new expertise following a request from the parents of little Gregory, found dead in Vologne on October 16, 1984, informs RTL.

DNA, voice identity…

It is more precisely "comparisons of the DNA found on the cords which surrounded the body of the child, the anorak from Gregory, his chin, but also certain letters from the raven", specifies the radio. Several relatives of the family will be the subject of this comparison, namely Michel Villemin, the brother of Jean-Marie Villemin, Guy Obertin, the brother-in-law of Bernard Laroche, cousins ​​and cousins ​​by marriage but also several other members.

At the request of Christine and Jean-Marie Villemin, parents of little Gregory, the investigating chamber of the Dijon Court of Appeal also orders a request for feasibility of vocal expertise of the raven recordings.

"We know the identity of the assassin"

The former gendarme published a book at the end of last February. This one is co-written with Jacques Pradel and is titled "Technical and scientific police : The Shock of the Future". The pages address the subject of technological advances within forensic science which have completely revolutionized investigation techniques.

François Daoust, former director of the Criminal Research Institute of the National Gendarmerie, gave an interview to Ciné-Télé-Revue, and looked back on the cases that marked his career , and particularly one of the biggest criminal cases in France, never solved: the Gregory affair.

"We know the identity of the assassin! We cannot report it, otherwise we risk being sued for defamation. But there was everything"< /em>, he assured, quoted by Nice Matin.

According to him, if the investigation was not successful, it was because there were too many failings throughout the investigation, and explains that this is a "error in legal procedure", which fact that the author of the death of little Gregory was never worried.

"Off the record, we know what happened, but officially, we can't say", confides François Daoust.
