Murder of Alexandra Cosson in Moréac: “The blow required a strong synergy”, concludes the forensic doctor

Chilling morning, this Tuesday, May 28, 2024, at the Vannes court. Before the Morbihan Assize Court, a gendarme from the investigation unit and a forensic doctor took turns to present their findings after the murder of Alexandra Cosson, on the night of September 11 to 12, 2020, in Moréac. The gendarmerie investigator – in charge of the crime scene – began by presenting to the court the photos taken at the home of the accused, Pierre Palot. Very quickly the first photos appeared on the screens, including those of the victim, Alexandra Cosson. A fear grips the room. Faced with the unbearable images, several family members left the room, in tears. In the box, Pierre Palot stares at the ground.

“Nothing happened up there”

Then, the soldier detailed the various clues collected in the house but also the lesions and wounds observed on the victim’s body. One detail also attracted attention: traces of stool found in the accused’s room. Pierre Palot explained that this fecal matter came from the victim. She allegedly defecated in the bed after saying the name of Dylan, the perpetrator of the rape of Alexandra Cosson. Questioned, the forensic doctor explained that this phenomenon was often linked to a loss of consciousness of the victim.

The president, Claire Le Bonnois, asked if it was possible that a first altercation had triggered this loss of stools. The scientist confirms. For his part, Pierre Palot does not vary: “Nothing happened up there”. Regarding the wound in the chest – caused by the knife and with a depth of 14 cm – here again, the accused maintains his version. He accidentally turned the gun on Alexandra. “The blow required a strong synergy,” insists the doctor, unable to either accredit or contradict the explanations of the accused. Concerning the blows, the pathologist can count at least four. The attorney general stands up in turn: “You would say that death is linked to a whole? The stabbing and the blows with the other objects? “. “We can say that, yes,” the doctor responds soberly.
