The specialized vehicle of the National Gendarmerie parked on the place of Etaples foreshadowed the worst for the inhabitants. Confirmation unfortunately came quickly: a 93-year-old lady had just been found dead in a street, as La Voix du Nord explains.
Part of the place was therefore cordoned off for the purposes of the investigation. While the cause of death is unknown, the victim could have been run over by a community waste collection truck. This is, for the time being, only a hypothesis. The investigation will now have to uncover the truth.
