The DNA of a former French police officer is said to be that of the serial killer known as “Le Grêlé,” who has been on the loose for 35 years, BBC reported.

The identity of “Le Grêlé” was announced this week as François Vérove, after his DNA had been matched to several crime scenes linked to the French serial killer, BBC said.

The 59-year-old was said to have used his police identity card and handcuffs to abduct and restrain his victims, SKY reported.

“Le Grêlé,” which translates to “hail,” according to Insider was known as “the pockmarked man,” due to distinctive facial features.

Saban believed “Le Grêlé” had tried his hardest to make sure none of his DNA was left at crime scenes, BBC reported.

On Thursday, French prosecutors said DNA samples taken from the body of Vérove matched DNA samples taken from past crime scenes of “Le Grêlé.".

Following the crack in the 35-year-old manhunt, Saban wants unsolved crimes to be reopened in order to apply DNA techniques that were unavailable at the time, BBC reported. »
