8-year-old girl found dead in her bed: what we know about the case after the autopsy

An 8-year-old girl was found dead on Sunday, June 30, 2024 in an apartment in Colmar, Haut-Rhin. Her mother was arrested and an investigation was opened and an autopsy performed to determine the circumstances of the death.

A gruesome discovery in an apartment near the city center of Colmar this Sunday, June 30. When police officers intervened for a woman who was throwing objects from her window, they discovered a little girl in her bed in the apartment.

What does the autopsy report provide?

Three days later, the investigation is progressing. While the lifeless body bore traces of injuries, the autopsy, carried out this Wednesday, July 3, seems to confirm the intervention of a third party in the death of the little girl, reports France Bleu Alsace.

The victim had “asphyxia syndrome” and “traumatic injuries to several parts of the body,” our colleagues said, according to the public prosecutor. Further analyses must still be carried out to determine the precise cause of death.

What about the mother?

The day the girl’s body was discovered, the mother was arrested by the police. Particularly agitated, the police had to use a taser to subdue her.

Aged 31, she is currently hospitalized in a psychiatric ward, our colleagues indicate, and the prosecutor reports that she still cannot be heard. An investigation is underway, the Mulhouse judicial police are in charge of the investigations.
