A Pakistani migrant, said to be in France illegally, has been arrested and charged with the murder of a 23-year-old female student whose body was found in the trunk of her car last month in the commune of Valenton.
According to investigators, Sandra B. had been suffocated and her body was found in the trunk of her car several days after she had gone missing, although investigators said there was no sign of sexual violence.
The 33-year-old Pakistani male was subsequently arrested and charged this week by the Créteil prosecutor with kidnapping, murder, alteration of a crime scene, and several other charges, Le Parisien reports.
The 23-year-old victim had been working at an internship at a company supplying ice cream to the Franprix chain of supermarkets and her phone’s last known location was at a Franprix shop in Quincy-sous-Sénart, where the Pakistani suspect had been working.
Police became suspicious of the illegal immigrant after he had booked a ticket to Italy the day the body of the victim had been discovered and put out an international arrest warrant for him but had difficulty tracking him down.
