According to the police, a man in western France has confessed to killing his wife, who had been missing for two and a half months. The man’s admission led investigators to discover the body of his wife. The woman, Karine Esquivillon, 54 years old and a mother of five, vanished without a trace from her home in the Pays de la Loire region on March 27.

Two weeks after her disappearance, her cell phone, which was missing a SIM card but had a photo of one of her daughters, was found in a ditch near a car park by the mayor of the commune. Despite the police’s appeal for witnesses, Karine’s husband, Michel Pialle, claimed that she had “voluntarily” left, although some family members doubted his statement. However, by the end of May, Pialle expressed increasing anxiety about his wife’s absence.

On Wednesday, Pialle was taken into police custody while a search of the family home was conducted. Investigators also seized the couple’s two vehicles. Eventually, Pialle admitted to the police that he accidentally killed his wife while handling a gun, according to a source close to the investigation, confirming reports by Le Parisien.

“Mr. Pialle made the decision to provide an explanation,” stated his lawyer, Antoine Ory, in a text message to AFP. Pialle confessed to the crime and “guided investigators to the location of her body,” said public prosecutor Emmanuelle Lepissier in a text message to AFP.
