French police, after three years, have finally discovered which of a set of jailed twins was responsible for a series of rapes that terrorised Marseilles.
Yoan and Elvin Gomis, both 26, have been held in custody, suspected of committing the series of sexual assaults, since DNA evidence brought police to their doorstep.
Both, as they are identical, had grounded the investigation to a halt. The police was unable to determine which one was guilty as they had identical DNA.
But the mystery was finally solved today after one of the twins, Yoan, made a dramatic confession in court.
He admitted that he had carried out the three rapes, three attempted rapes and a sexual assault in the southern city of Marseille, between September 2012 and February 2013.
For the last 10 months, both brothers have been held in custody awaiting the outcome of the investigation.
It was also found that the pair are so close they not only did they share a flat in Marseille, they also shared clothes, a car, telephones and even a Facebook account. (Daily Mail)
