Axelle Dorier, a 23-year-old French woman and nurse, was struck by a vehicle and dragged 800 meters to her death on July 19 while walking her dog in the city of Lyon, with prosecutors stating that the Muslim migrant driver “intentionally ran her down” and drove away from her dismembered body where her arm had been ripped off.
Remix News (h/t CEC) The 21-year-old driver, Youcef T., has been placed into custody for “manslaughter” for being responsible for the “hit-and-run death”, Lyon prosecutors say.
Maître Céline Cooper, a far-left lawyer who is defending the suspect said the popular outrage over the incident is from right-wing citizens and lambasted the French Minister of the Interior of having spoken of “murder” in the case.
French prosecutors say that the driver, Youcef T., was originally at a birthday party with 40 people in the 5th arrondissement. He and his friend left the party in two separate vehicles and his friend, driving a Twingo, struck a dog, killing it.
Youcef T. claims he “panicked” after the owners of the dog became aggressive and began to attack both his friend and himself. Youcef T. sped away and only to strike Dorier while she walking her own dog. He said he did not realize that she became wedged in his vehicle and simply kept driving.
National Rally leader Marine Le Pen wrote:
Police say they received a call over a dispute between two motorists and a group of young people who accused him of killing their dog. A few minutes later, they received a second call about “a motorist driving a Golf who knowingly ran over a young woman and dragged her for several meters”, according to La Depeche.
Adeline Noirmain, an advisor to Les Republicans, wrote that “Axelle is part of the silent majority who live their life without fuss but who endure violence. She will not be memorialized by show business big mouths and her family will not be erected as an icon like the Traores. Insufferable and revolting.”
