French authorities open probe after woman decapitated

Paris French authorities are investigating a suspect after a woman was found decapitated in a town in the country’s south.
The suspect, a man, is under judicial supervision, the public prosector for the Beziers area said on Saturday evening.
The 77-year-old woman was beheaded in the town of Agde, on France’s southern coast. Her body was found after her son alerted the authorities when he was unable to reach her.
Officers found the slain woman’s body and evidence of a struggle at her apartment. But there were no indications of a break-in. The exact circumstances of the crime were initially unclear. Several factors suggest the suspect was responsible for the crime, including that his DNA was found at the crime scene and the victim’s blood was found on his shoes.
Video surveillance also showed a man resembling the suspect but wearing a protective medical face mask. (dpa)
