Cédric, a 39-year-old La Hestrois, beaten to death in front of his daughter this Sunday

Rare scenes of violence took place this Sunday in Manage where our colleagues from Sudpresse inform us that Cédric, a 39-year-old La Hestrois, was beaten to death in front of his ten-year-old daughter. As he was going to the pharmacy to take care of his toothache problem, an acquaintance invited him to come and have a drink at the Maison du Peuple. The latter would have offered Cédric to solve his toothache problem by hitting him. Cedric then retaliated before leaving.

A little further on, at the traffic lights on the Chaussée de Mons in Jolimont, two men got out of their vehicle to attack him, armed with brass knuckles. Cédric then fell to the ground for the first time before getting up. The second hit knocked him back to the ground. He then suffered beatings of rare violence, was thrown to the ground before his attackers banged his head on the ground still in front of his ten-year-old daughter. The first blow would have been fatal. The two men then fled, leaving him for dead. As for her daughter, they picked her up and took her to her mother.

My niece told us that she wanted to stay close to her dad but that they took her away by force. She is very shocked but does not cry. She will be followed psychologically in the days to come. She, in any case, had to tell everything to the police while being filmed“, says Manuela, Cédric’s sister-in-law, to our colleagues from Sudpresse.

The victim knew his attackers well, with whom he sometimes went for a drink. Disputes broke out from time to time, but without much gravity. The latter will ultimately have been fatal to him. Cédric had been in a coma since that Sunday, the day of the events. He then died brain dead on Tuesday before being disconnected on Wednesday. According to his family, Cédric was a bon vivant who gave everything for his family.
