Little did the firefighters in Paris, France, realize the national crisis they would bring to light when they were called out to an apartment blaze on Friday, March 23, 2018. The conflagration was in a block in the 11th Arrondissement, a cosmopolitan district to the east of the French capital’s center. When the firefighters accessed the address they were confronted by a horrific scene. They found the burnt body of Mireille Knoll, the apartment’s 85-year-old resident. It was later discovered that she had been stabbed 11 times. However, despite the fact that the grandmother had been mutilated and set alight, there was arguably an even more chilling aspect to the crime.
