LYON, FRANCE (GaeaTimes.com)- Prosecutor on Wednesday mentioned to media sources during a press conference that a Frenchwoman named Guylene Collober had confessed to the killing of her companion, a retired chef Jean-Francois Poinard. Prosecutor Marc Desert said that 51-year-old Guylene Collober had not only killed the chef two years ago but also preserved the body of the victim in a freezer in France’s Lyon. She had reportedly confessed to fatally punching her companion to death. The Police found the dead body of Jean-Francois Poinard on Tuesday at his apartment after they were alerted by the daughter of Guylene Collober. Guylene Collober had reportedly confessed to the crime in front of her daughter during a night out.
Prosecutor Marc Desert revealed in front of the media sources that Jean-Francois Poinard was killed after an altercation between him and Guylene Collober “turned awry”. He maintained that Guylene Collober had kept the body of Jean-Francois Poinard on a bathtub for a few days during which he acquired a chest freezer and then dumped his body. The body of Jean-Francois Poinard was found by the officials who carried out a search in his home. Guylene Collober had previously claimed that her boyfriend might have been killed by racketeers.
Guylene Collober has been taken under custody as police are investigating the case. Marc Desert said that Guylene Collober was a person with “pathological tendencies, narcissistic, possessive and violent.” He also added that Jean-Francois Poinard was often seen by neighbors with bruises and other marks that probably were caused by Guylene Collober. According to him the lady had isolated the star chef from his family, friends and neighbors.
