Disappeared in Mayenne on November 8, Lisa, 17, confessed to having lied about her kidnapping. According to Alain Bauer, criminologist, love could have played a role in this incredible lie.
But why did Lisa lie about her disappearance? This is the question that the whole of France has been asking for ten days now. Originally from Saint-Brice, in Mayenne, the teenager vanished last November 8 while she was jogging. Missing for long hours, she finally reappeared on Tuesday, November 9 in a Turkish restaurant in the city center of Sablé-sur-Sarthe, a few kilometers from her home. At first, Lisa explained that she was kidnapped “two men” in “green van”, before coming back to his version three days later, revealing, to everyone’s astonishment, having lied to the police.
Since then, it is incomprehension. Why did a 17-year-old girl tell such serious lies? During her hearing, Lisa would have explained her gesture by “a lack of recognition“, reveals a source in the columns of franceinfo. But according to Alain Bauer, criminologist guest on the airwaves of France Bleu Monday, November 15, the lies of the teenager could be explained otherwise. According to him, the first reason why “we invent a story” is “a romantic encounter that we do not want to assume”. So Lisa could be in love and have made a mistake that she wouldn’t dare to share with the general public.
A third party involved in the case?
According to the first elements of the investigation, a third person could indeed be involved in the case. Indeed, during her hearing, Lisa explained that she had walked 10 kilometers between the municipalities of Saint-Brice and Sablé-sur-Sarthe. However, the sniffer dogs deployed by the police never succeeded in ascending the path described by the jogger. Would she have lied about her itinerary and, perhaps, about the presence of another person by her side? The mystery remains unsolved. For now, Lisa remains cloistered at her home in Saint-Brice pending the outcome of the case. Note that for “false denunciation to a judicial authority”, the teenager risks up to 6 months imprisonment and a 7,500 euros fine.
