An infamous French serial killer suspected of more than a dozen murders across Asia will be released from prison in Nepal. Charles Sobhraj, now 78, was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2004 for killing two women, one of them American, decades earlier.
Prison officials said Wednesday that Sobhraj would be released because he was in poor health and had shown good behavior during his sentence. In Nepal, prisoners are eligible for release if they show good behavior for 75% of their prison term.
Sobhraj’s exact release date was not disclosed. Authorities plan to deport him to France once he walks out of prison. Sobhraj was sentenced for the 1975 killings of American Connie Jo Bronzich and Canadian Laurent Carriere — and is suspected of a litany of crimes across the continent. 슬롯머신
In 1977, he confessed to numerous killings in an interview with journalist Richard Neville, which led to the book “The Life and Crimes of Charles Sobhraj.” He recanted the confession a few years later. 안전공원
Sobhraj spent 20 years behind bars in India for attempting to poison and rob a group of French students in 1977. He reportedly escaped from prison numerous times. Upon his 1997 release, Sobhraj began living a life of luxury in Paris. But in 2003, he was spotted at a casino in Nepal. Authorities arrested him a few weeks later. 슬롯게임
Sobhraj was known as “The Serpent” for his chameleonic ability to blend into surroundings, deceive people and escape from tight spots. He was also nicknamed “The Bikini Killer” after two of his young female victims were found wearing bikinis. Last year, the BBC and Netflix released an eight-episode series on Sobhraj called “The Serpent.” 온라인슬롯
