French Police Commissioner Kills Himself Amid Pressure of Paris Terror

January 13, 2015  | 

Helric Fredou, a 45-year-old French police commissioner, shot and killed himself in his office just after meeting with the family of one of the Paris terrorist victims, reports the Washington Times.

Fredou had served as deputy director of the regional police in Limoges, in central France. Mediaite reported that he had been in the middle of helping investigate the terror attacks at Charlie Hebdo, and was in the midst of wrapping up a report with the family of one of the victims, when he committed suicide by shooting himself in the head.

Local police union representatives said that Fredou had already been under considerable stress when the terrorist attacks occurred, and that he was believed to have been suffering from depression, Mediaite said. Still, the community was in shock.

Fredou killed himself last week but news of his death was just making media rounds.

Wow, I feel sorry fopr him and his family. If he was that stressed out too bad nobody helped before this happened. I find it interesting that he had a gun, in his office, as the Commissioner but the poor cops killed at the Charlie building were unarmed…..hmmmm
