French Sex- Crime March
PARIS: The parents of 14- year- old Julie Scharch
urged French citizens yesterday to join a march
to demand the Government get tougher on sex
offenders, hours after her body was found.
The macabre events in Alsace unfolded at a time
when both France and Belgium were shocked by
a separate case in which convicted sex offender
Michel Fourniret has confessed to nine killings.
A Scharch family lawyer said a silent march for
action would be held on July 10 in the town of
Colmar. Julie's body, retrieved by police yesterday
from a remote woodlands stream, is one of three
discovered in the Alsace region since late May. She
vanished after leaving her house on her bicycle.
Police have arrested a man who has spent 30
years between psychiatric hospitals and jails and
who was released early from prison last March.

Bodies Of Victims Found At Chateau
DONCHERY, France: A
French avowed serial killer led
police yesterday to the bodies
of a 12- year- old girl and
22- year- old woman he admitted having killed and buried
on the grounds of his former
home 15 years earlier.
The two are among nine
people, including eight women
and girls, that Michel Fourniret
has confessed to having killed
between 1987 and 2001.
"We have found the second
body, and thus 15 years of investigation have just come to their
conclusion," prosecutor Yves
Charpenel announced on the
site of the chateau, in the
Ardennes forest region bordering Belgium and France.
"It is with quite some emotion
that I announce the discovery of
(the remains of) Elisabeth
Brichet," a 12- year- old Belgian
girl whom Michel Fourniret has
admitted to killing in 1989, said
another prosecutor, Cedric
Visart de Bocarme.
The body of Jeanne- Marie
Desramault, who Fourniret said
he also killed and interred in
1989, was identified earlier,
Prosecutors said experts would
conduct analyses to confirm the
In a startling case that has
unfolded with dramatic speed,
Fourniret, 62, confessed days
ago to the nine killings, many of
which took place tn this wooded
border region, and then offered
to help police dig up the remains
of two of his victims at the 19th-
century chateau he once owned.
He has been dubbed "the
French Dutroux" by media because his confessions emerged
just a week after Belgian's most
hated man Marc Dutroux received a life sentence for a horrific series of rapes and murders
of teenage girls that traumatised Belgian society.
Fourniret, who has been held
in Belgium since June 2003 for
abduction of minors and sexual
misconduct, confessed to the
killings after his estranged wife
accused him of committing at
least 10 murders.
Both he and his wife, Monique
Olivier, were brought to the
Sautou chateau yesterday,
where about 200 police
equipped with ground-digging
excavators hunted for the victims' bodies in areas indicated
Mr Charpenel said expert
testing would be done, possible
DNA testing, to confirm the victims' identities, adding that the
"clay earth has preserved the
bodies". Fourniret was arrested
in Belgium last year after allegedly trying to abduct a 13- year-
old Congolese girl who escaped
and led police to him.
Fourniret has confessed to
killing a ninth victim, a man, for
money. He also confessed to the
murder of a woman in order to,
get the fortune with which he
bought the chateau.

New Child Sex Killer Case Rocks Belgium
LIEGE, Belgium: On the heels of a
pedophile murder trial that has caused
trauma in Belgium, a French forestry
worker has confessed to the murder of six
girls and has been accused of trilling
several other people.
Liege prosecutor Anne Thily said
Michel Fourniret, in detention in Belgium
since June, 2003 charged with abduction
of minors and sexual misconduct, confessed to "six murders of girls" in Belgium
and France between 1987 and 2001.
But Ms Thily said he could be responsible for the deaths of a total of as many
as "about a dozen" victims, burying several near a castle at Donchery in the
Ardennes hills. Investigators were expected to begin digging up the area today.
Among the victims was Elisabeth
Brichet, a Belgian girl aged 12 when she
was kidnapped near Namur, southern
Belgium, in December, 1989. The 62-year-
old Frenchman confessed to kidnapping,
trying to rape and finally strangling her,
Ms Thily said.
"Michel Foumiret confessed to the kidnapping and admits he was obliged to kill
her," said prosecutor Cedric Visart de
Bocarme. in charge of the case in Dinant,
where Foumiret is in custody.
The girl's mother was a founder of the
"White Movement" launched by the
parents of missing Belgian children after
the arrest of rapist Marc Dutroux in 1996,
amid reports of a large pedophile network
operating in Belgium.
