  • The victim was discovered with her feet and wrists bound, tape over her mouth and several cuts to her throat

  • The girl’s body was found at 11.30pm Friday night just hours after she was reported missing by her mother

A homeless woman with ‘serious psychological problems’ has been charged with the murder, rape and torture of a 12-year-old girl whose throat was slit before her mutilated body was stuffed in a suitcase in Paris.

Dahbia B., a 24-year-old homeless woman originally from Algeria, appeared before examining magistrates today following her arrest on Saturday and was indicted in connection with the gruesome killing of Lola Daviet. 

The schoolgirl was found on Friday, tied up inside the plastic suitcase near her home with the numbers ‘1’ and ‘0’ imprinted on her chest, and then left in the inner courtyard of a building in the French capital’s northeast. 

CCTV footage had emerged showing both the alleged killer and her victim next to the block of flats where Lola lived with her middle class parents who owned properties across northern France.

Lola’s horribly mutilated body was later found close to the building, in the city’s 19th arrondissement, where she lived with her parents, Delphine and Johan Daviet. 

‘The suspect had boasted about selling body parts,’ said an investigating source. ‘Evidence suggests that the girl was taken into the basement of the flat, where she was tortured, and raped, before being strangled and having her throat cut’.

The source added: ‘The suspect is believed to suffer with serious psychological problems. She was living on the street, but had friends and family in the Paris area.’

A judicial source confirmed that Dahbia B was is custody charged with ‘The murder of a child under 15, rape, and torture.’ 

A murder probe has been launched into the death of the girl – named by French media as Lola Daviet – after her corpse was found tied up inside the plastic suitcase close to her home in the French capital late on Friday night

On Friday night after the body was discovered, three people were arrested near the scene, then a woman, who was spotted on CCTV with the schoolgirl hours before her death, was also held. Two others were also arrested and all are originally from Algeria, Le Parisien said.

The victim was discovered with her feet and wrists bound, tape around her face and several cuts to her throat, just hours after she was reported missing by her parents when she failed to return after class at the Georges-Brassens college just yards away from her home.

She had numbers placed on her body by a ‘device’ rather than cut into her skin, according to police source cited by French broadcaster BFMTV.

A post-mortem examination on Saturday concluded that she had died of asphyxiation following a physical attack that included a knife being used to cut her body..

Chilling security camera footage has emerged which showed the young girl, dressed in a white outfit and carrying what appears to be a schoolbag, walking into her building behind a woman who witnesses claimed was later seen carrying the suitcase.

One resident said he saw the suspect dragging the suitcase around two hours prior to Lola’s disappearance.

‘We saw her go into the building, and she was dragging the suitcase with her,’ he said. ‘She did not seem right in the mind.’

Others saw the suspect drinking a coffee and eating a croissant as she appeared to ‘try and work out what to do next’.

Police told French media they had uncovered signs of kidnapping in the basement of the building and launched a murder enquiry.

Lola’s corpse was discovered on Friday evening by a homeless man who saw an abandoned suitcase on the street 

The girl was found outside a block of flats on Rue d’Hautpoul (pictured) in the French capital’s 19th arrondissement after she had been reported missing by her mother when she failed to return home from school

The schoolgirl’s face was covered in tape, her feet and fists were bound, and she had suffered several cuts to her throat, according to reports.

The victim’s mother, Delphine, went to police at 5pm on Friday evening when she became worried that her daughter had not returned home, and subsequently posted a desperate appeal for help on social media. 

Delphine posted an image of Lola, which was accompanied by the following message: ‘Our daughter Lola was last seen at 3:20pm in the company of a woman we do not know in our residence.’ 

The surveillance footage from the entrance of the building only captured Lola following her suspected killer into her block. 

Less than six hours later, a homeless man contacted the police after he allegedly stumbled upon the suitcase and discovered the body inside at around 11.30pm on Rue d’Hautpoul – just a stone’s throw away from the victim’s home. 

Police have taken several people into custody including the female suspect who was seen carrying the suitcase and the homeless man who reported finding Lola’s body.

The public prosecutor confirmed to BFMTV that signs of a struggle had been discovered in one of the basement rooms in Lola’s building. 

Parisian officials indicated that staff and students of the Georges-Brassens school attended by Lola would receive psychological support, as well as neighbouring schools in the area.
