Who’s Grégory Villemin?
He was a four-year-old boy found drowned in the Vologne river near Docelles, in eastern France in October 1984.
Why has he been in the news this week?
On Wednesday, a prosecutor in the city of Dijon announced that much-anticipated DNA tests on Grégory’s clothes, and on cords used to tie up his hands and feet, had been inconclusive.

It's certainly a big case. I have it on my Classic Cold Case Poll but it doesn't have any votes yet.This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

I've looked on several sites about the case but can't find an answer to a very important question-did The Crow's letters and phone calls stop after Jean-Marie Villeman murdered his cousin, Laroche?

This year, it will be 30 years since little 4-year-old Gregory was murdered. The case that featured an individual who identified themselves as Le Corbeau (The Crow) and who taunted the Villemin family by both telephone and letter before and after the murder. By phone, the Crow's voice was so frantic that it was not possible to tell if it was a man or a woman. On the day of the murder, the Crow sent one last letter saying "I HAVE MY REVENGE". Later, Gregory's father shot and killed his cousin who police were investigating but there was no evidence against Bernard Laroche who was most likely innocent. Mr. Villemin served 4 years in prison for the killing. Gregory's mother Christine was put on trial for killing her child but the verdict came back as not guilty. So today it stands as an unsolved case.This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.
