Police commissioner kills himself after meeting Charlie Hebdo victim’s family
A French police commissioner has reportedly killed himself after meeting relatives of a victim murdered in the Charlie Hebdo massacre.
Television station France 3 reported that Helric Fredou, 45, shot himself in his office on Wednesday night in Limoges, a city in central France.
Commissioner Fredou had been the deputy director of the regional police since 2012 after beginning his career as a police officer in 1997.
Colleagues told France 3 he was single and had no children, describing him as “depressed” and overworked.
