Missing Chef Found After Two Years

The Chef in question. (HT AOL)

We now know what happened to the missing chef, Jean-Francois Poinard. From ABC News:

"The former girlfriend of a famous French chef has confessed to punching him to death and then hiding his body in a freezer for the past two years, prosecutors say.

The police raided the apartment the two used to share in Lyon, southwest France, after Guylene Collober, 51, confessed to her daughter on Tuesday that "something unfortunate" had happened to the 71-year-old Jean-Francois Poinard in 2008, The Globe and Mail reported.

The body of Poinard, a retired restaurateur who was regarded as one of the country's best chefs in the 1970s and 1980s, was found in a fetal position wrapped in plastic bags, The Globe and Mail reported.

"An initial examination suggests it could have been there for up to two years," a police spokesman was quoted as saying by The Daily Mail, which said a full post-mortem would be carried out to find the exact cause of death.

In its report from Paris, however, The Globe and Mail said Collober admitted beating Poinard to death and said she kept his body in the bathroom for a while before buying the freezer. According to the Lyon newspaper Le Progres, Collober faces a maximum of 20 years in prison if found guilty of his murder, and was scheduled to appear in court today."

After what she did, she deserves life imprisonment at the very least.
