London Police are questioning 39-year-old Jacques Girardin -- arrested for the torture-murders of a 38-year-old woman and her two children in western France -- about trail of unsolved killings spanning from France to Ireland for which he might be responsible. The killings include the rape-murder of British schoolgirl Caroline Dickinson during a school trip to Pleine-Fougeres in western France in July last year, and the murder in December of French TV producer Sophie Toscan du Plantier in West Cork. Police in Kent also want to ask him about the slayings of a mother and her daughter in Canterbury in July last year.
French police began hunting Girardin when the bodies of Longesserre and her children were discovered on October 2. Investigators have found a diary at the scene of Longesserre's murder pledging to kill 17 inhabitants of Sligo, Ireland, by the end of the year. From 1990 to 1992 Jacques did time in Ireland for torching a restaurant.
