French Prosecutor: Killer at Jewish School May be Linked to Neo-Nazi Group
According to a report from France’s Le Point newspaper, the country’s prosecutor believes Monday’s killer may be linked to two other incidents inside France recently, where the only leads police have trace back to former members of a French paratrooper division who were discharged for being closely linked to Neo -Nazis.
In 2008, a fellow member of the 17th Parachute Engineer Regimen reported that 3 members of the regimen “had their picture taken…..behind a swastika flag,” according to Le Point. The 3 men were discharged from the military and according to the Le Point report, their profiles do correspond with the small amount of information available to authorities on Monday’s killer.
“The typical profile of these sinister characters corresponds to the meager reports available to investigators to identify the crazy Toulouse killer, well muscled, tattooed and dressed in black,” the paper reports.
“One thing is certain, the mysterious killers appear to be veterans in the use of weapons,” Le Point writes.
French investigators have confirmed that one of the two weapons used in Monday’s attack was the same weapon used in the other two deadly incidents recently.
