“A priori, we are in a context of settling scores linked to narcotics, without prejudice” because the investigation is beginning, Annecy prosecutor Line Bonnet told AFP.

A judicial investigation was opened for “murder” and a European arrest warrant was issued against the main suspect, she added.

The victim “was injured with a stab wound to the neck by an individual who fled in a vehicle” in the company of another person, according to the Thonon prosecutor, Bruno Badré, confirming information from the daily The Dauphiné Libéré.

The events took place “early Tuesday afternoon”, added the magistrate who then dismissed the case in favor of the Annecy public prosecutor’s office, due to the “criminal nature of the facts”.

Investigations continue

Emergency transported to the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG), in Switzerland, the victim died “as a result of his injuries”, he said.

Two arrests quickly took place in Switzerland, not far from the scene of the attack: on Tuesday shortly after 4 p.m., a man, “suspected of being the passenger” of the fugitives’ vehicle, “presented himself at the police station in Plainpalais”, in Geneva, according to the same Source.

The second individual, suspected of being the perpetrator, was arrested by the Swiss authorities “shortly afterwards”, also in Geneva, she added.

No information has been communicated at this stage regarding the identity of the escapees or their relationship with the victim.

The investigation was entrusted to the Annecy judicial police and the investigations are continuing within the framework of judicial cooperation with Switzerland under the authority of the Annecy public prosecutor’s office.
