Why would a judicial police commissioner allegedly commit suicide while wrapping up a report on investigations into one of the biggest criminal acts in France in recent times?
Helric Fredou, a 45-year-old French police commissioner, reportedly shot and killed himself in his office at 1.00am, while he was wrapping up a police report after meeting with the family of one of the Paris murder victims.
Meanwhile, the classmates of Hamyd Mourad, 18, the suspected driver of the Charlie Hepdo murderers, have come out to protest that he is innocent. They say he was in class at the time! Hamyd Mourad himself went to see the police after he saw his name mentioned on the news (presumably to seek protection?). He is no longer regarded as a suspect. So who was the real driver then?
Journalists worth their salt should take a closer look at these two angles and the circumstances surrounding them. Both of these developments have been given scant coverage in the mainstream media.
