THE EXPERTS FROM THE GENDARMERIE : AT THE HEART OF CRIME | M6 | Enquête Exclusive
Serial burglary, gangs of vehicle thieves, air or road disasters: the 250 men and women of the National Gendarmerie Criminal Research Institute (IRCGN) are at the heart of the most sensitive cases. Thanks to special permission, we were allowed access to several particularly sensitive police investigations.Laurent and his team are on the track of a group of serial burglars who are plundering the Normandy countryside. Stakeouts, camouflage, tails: we are in the thick of the action, right up to the arrest of the suspects, identified by their fingerprints. An original view from the heart of the investigation, when science is decisive in solving a case.In May 2016, Egyptair flight MS804, bound for Cairo, crashed with 66 people on board, including 15 French. We were able to follow the setting up of a crisis unit within the IRCGN, responsible for identifying the victims. In this particular case, Egypt refused to repatriate the bodies of the French victims for some considerable time. Why? How can you mourn without a body? Two sisters who lost their father and their brother agreed to share their struggle to recover the bodies of their loved ones.In an exclusive with Jeremy, captain and accident specialist, we follow the work of the experts on the biggest road accident of 2016. In the Vendée, just before Christmas, 5 people were killed and many others seriously injured following a pile-up involving some forty vehicles between La Roche-sur-Yon and Les Sables-d’Olonne. How did such a terrible accident happen and what were its causes?
