A 32-year-old man, considered “very dangerous”, and hospitalized in the psychiatric emergency department of the Purpan hospital, in Toulouse, escaped this Thursday morning informs La Dépêche du Midi.
Law enforcement is currently looking for him.
This leak comes after two other escapes of the same type in Toulouse in the past two weeks.
Last Sunday, a 48-year-old patient, interned after a murder in 2010, escaped from the Gérard Marchant psychiatric hospital in Toulouse. The patient was arrested a few hours after his escape, not far from the psychiatric hospital.
On Wednesday January 19, another man had fled from this same establishment: it was Jérémy Rimbaud nicknamed the “cannibal of the Pyrenees” who, during his escape, violently hit the head with a wooden bar a septuagenarian who was walking his dog in the street. Passers-by had intervened to control him.
This man was interned in 2013 after killing a 90-year-old farmer before trying to burn him in Nouilhan, in the Hautes-Pyrénées. He had ripped out her heart and tongue and was preparing to eat them. Aged 26 at the time, a former soldier, he told investigators that he “heard voices”.
