Default Autopsies solve strange case of French friends who died over dinner

Quote:
When two men enjoying a summer dinner of roasted beef and canned beans dropped dead in Authon-du-Perche, the French village found itself at the centre of what seemed to be a sinister mystery that gripped the country.

Neither the body of Olivier Boudin, 38, found lying on his back on the ground, or that of Lucien Perot, 69, sat at the terrace table before a half-finished plate, some camembert, a partly eaten baguette and a glass of wine, showed signs of an attack or a fight and there was no indication of a break-in or robbery.
It could almost be a whodunit with a twist... it's a sad thing but it would make a good detective story!

Possibly related to the case of the missing URL

https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...village-solved

ETA:OK, now I've actually read the article. Huh, that is a weird twist. Kind of like the Hound of the Baservilles, if the Hound of the Baskervilles was a man who choked on steak.

Well, as you've beaten me to the punch, I can at least provide the embed:



Oh, but yes, very sad.
