In police custody, the individual stated that “he had been contacted by the partner” of the victim, who then asked him “to retrieve the bag and put it in the cellar”.

In the home, the victim’s three children, aged 18 months, 4 and 7 years, were found alone.

The individual was cleared of any wrongdoing and released, according to the same source.
