The 46-year-old caregiver was indicted this Thursday, May 16 after her custody for murder and theft from a vulnerable person at the Sainte-Madeleine EHPAD in Thionville. The victim, an 84-year-old resident, was found dead with a pillow on her face on Sunday, May 12. The caregiver, who was the only one on duty that night, admitted the facts while in police custody.

The 46-year-old caregiver, who had been placed in police custody as part of the investigation into the suspicious death of an octogenarian at the EHPAD Sainte-Madeleine in Thionville on Sunday May 12, 2024, was placed under examination, this Thursday, May 16 at the end of the morning. She was notified of two charges: murder with the object of preparing a crime or the impunity of its perpetrator, as well as theft from a vulnerable person.

During her custody, which lasted a little less than 48 hours, she admitted to the theft of the resident’s jewelry, an act which, according to her, degenerated. She also admitted to her murder. Yves Bardoc, the prosecutor of the Metz public prosecutor’s office, confirmed the opening of a judicial investigation into these acts of theft leading to death. The caregiver faces life imprisonment.

The 84-year-old resident was found with a pillow over her face and her bedroom window open. According to the Républicain Lorrain, it was during a round around 4 a.m. that the caregiver discovered the body. The room, located on the ground floor of the establishment, appears to have been completely searched. The caregiver, who was the only one monitoring the residents of the EHPAD that night, had herself raised the alarm.

The investigation continues. Questions remain unanswered for the moment, in particular that of the presence of only one caregiver that night. The EHPAD refused all our interview requests.
