French cannibal escapes and attacks woman again in street | Abroad – Archyworldys

Jérémy Rimaud has been in a closed psychiatric facility since 2011. The man is a veteran and had returned from Afghanistan earlier this year. Two weeks after returning to France, he murdered a 90-year-old farmer and dismembered the man’s body. According to the criminal record, he had the victim’s tongue cut out and a piece of his heart removed. He would then have wanted to cook it with white beans.

Rimaud told police he heard voices telling him to kill the old man.

A little later he was caught trying to kill a second farmer with an iron bar. He was then arrested in time. Rimaud was sentenced to life imprisonment for murder and was nicknamed the “Cannibal of the Pyrenees”. He was later diagnosed with schizophrenia and diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder from his time in Afghanistan.


The man had been in the closed institution for years, but escaped on Wednesday. During this escape, he attacked a woman in the street. She was walking her dog near the center of Toulouse when Rimaud hit her on the back of the head. Then he also used a stick to hit her again. Passers-by came to the woman’s aid, after which Rimaud ran away.

The man was arrested again and taken back to the facility. How the man escaped is currently under investigation.
