Frenchman Nicolas Panard’s past may have caught up with him. Police arrested the 68-year old yesterday for his potential role in at least 18 murders. Yes, 18 – and many of his victims were gay men:
A 68-year-old man has been detained by French police in connection with as many as 18 murders between 1980 and 2002.
Most of the victims were gay men. Nicolas Panard was arrested in the French city of Mulhouse yesterday.
He is reported to be well-known on the gay scene and previously worked as a drag performer.
Police already jailed Panard’s alleged accomplice for another murder.
Though they have no concrete evidence of Panard’s bloody past, his name appeared in a number of unsolved crime files, all of which featured similar murderous methods, ie: blows to the head, stabbings and partially naked bodies with their faces covered. Coincidence?
