DAVAL CASE, A FAMILY PACT
An episode from the series CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS
After having publicly mourned the death of his wife alongside his parents-in-law, Jonathann Daval was quickly arrested and placed in police custody.
He confessed to having killed his wife "accidentally" before recanting and accusing his brother-in-law of having committed the murder in the context of a family plot.
After several months of denials and false accusations, Jonathann finally confessed to his crime and admitted to having tried to burn his wife's body.
