Between the voluntary act or the clumsiness, the circumstances of the death of Christophe Dominici are likely to remain a mystery. The eagerly awaited toxicological analyzes, which were to provide elements of understanding, do not allow us to say whether the fatal fall of the rugby player, on November 24 in the park of Saint-Cloud, was an accident or a suicide.
The possible absorption of psychotropic substances could have made it possible to deduce whether he had been able to lose his balance or whether he was depressed. But it is not. “No traces of drugs or alcohol were found in his blood. But traces of drugs in moderate proportions were found, ”says the Nanterre prosecutor’s office, confirming information from The team.
This presence of drugs in small quantities does not, however, confirm that the former player of the XV of France, medically monitored for a depressive state, wanted to end his life.
The investigation could be completed in the coming weeks
And this even if the investigation carried out by the police of the police station of Saint-Cloud highlighted that the former winger had been suffering for some time from “delusional flashes” linked to a lack of sleep.
His wife, who was auditioned, rejects the suicide thesis outright. She said so and told investigators again. In a press release published on November 27, the family wanted to warn against “certain assertions under which Christophe Dominici would knowingly end his life”.
“This thesis – particularly easy – is not proven, and can not, as it stands, be accredited,” added the press release. In any event, legally “it does not change much whether it is an accident or a suicide”, confides a source close to the investigation. This could therefore be completed in the next few weeks since the thesis of the intervention of a third party had already been ruled out.
