    The father of a beauty queen who disappeared without trace along with her mother was found hanged Monday in his French Foreign Legion barracks, judicial sources said.

    His daughter Allison, 19, and his wife Marie-Josee Benitez, 53, disappeared on July 14 and have not been seen since, local assistant prosecutor Luc-Andre Lenormand said.

    It's being reported that he was questioned about the disappearance of a girlfriend in 2004 but had a good alibi at the time; that of course is being re-looked at.
    Also read that the mother had already left the house for 10 days, with no contact with the family, a while back. Her brother thinks she is alive and that her husband had nothing to do with her disappearance.
    I still think he knew a lot more than he said he did; he didn't commit suicide for no reason.

    While I do agree that the circumstances are suspicious, there are a lot of people who committed suicide for no apparent reason, or one that is a lot less than being suspected of murdering your wife and daughter.

    "It's being reported that he was questioned about the disappearance of a girlfriend in 2004 but had a good alibi at the time; that of course is being re-looked at.

    That could possibly explain the mother's disappearance, but sure doesn't for the daughter being she was so close to her cherished beauty pageant.
    It would have been a close step to being crowned Miss France. No one
    voluntarily gives up their dreams so easily!

    IMO, any rational person would take THAT + leaving a beloved dog by itself + no car, no money. Adds up to: murder-suicide.

    You're most welcome. Happy you enjoyed my 2 cents worth. Gotta
    admit it took me a few minutes to figure out how to operate in this place as I haven't posted in about 5 years, or so.

    I also gotta admit that I didn't have good feelings about this Benitez character from the 1st moment I read about him. He appeared too emotional, too unstable, too jealous & controlling. A pity his wife didn't stay away permanently after the 1st separation. A greater
    pity that their daughter was caught up in all this. Hope the gendarmes get cadaver sniffing dogs. They'll need 'em.

    I'm not sold on the husband/father's innocence. Whether he was directly involved or not, for him to hang himself after their disappearance due to the suspicion he was under leads me to believe that he knew more than he was letting on.

    Did either mother or daughter have any 'enemies'? It will be harder to find answers now that the person who should be closest to the two is no longer with us.

    Big difference now....after Marie-Josee left the 1st time, there was no suicide and she returned. I don't buy his excuse at all, despite his tears & protestations. Too bad the killer in this case cheated the hangman. I would've LOVED to see justice for this poor FAMILY :stormingmad:

    Cops accept missing beauty queen was killed

    Investigators have closed down their “search for causes of the disappearance,” of Allison and Marie-Josée Benitez, and replaced it with a murder inquiry, it emerged this week.

    [snip]

    “The objective remains the same: find these two people, figure out as precisely as possible how they went missing, and who is responsible for their disappearance and possibly their death,” he added.

    It emerged that in the weeks before she and her mother vanished, 19-year-old Allison - who was due to take part in the Miss Roussillon contest - had begun a personal investigation into her father.
    It has been claimed she believed he was leading a double life with a Spanish mistress.
    French Police are to question the Spanish woman, whom he is known to have phoned two hours before his death.
    Mounting suspicion against Benitez has also led to speculation that he may have been involved in the disappearance of another of his mistresses, a Brazilian woman who vanished in 2004
