Imprisoned for 25 years for murder and rape of minors, few people know what Marc Dutroux looks like today. But two years ago, a video filmed by one of his fellow prisoners was broadcast on Belgian television. On the images, the pedophile appeared unrecognizable.
Never-before-seen images. In May 2020, the Flemish channel VTM had broadcast, as part of its program Telefacts, a video of Marc Dutroux, incarcerated in the prison of Nivelles, in Belgium, for 25 years. On the images recorded by one of his fellow prisoners a few months earlier, and never seen before, we discovered the murderous pedophile with a long beard, gray hair, or shirtless.
Incarcerated since 2004 for murder and rape of minors, Marc Dutroux also wanted to confide in front of the camera to his fellow prisoner to continue to proclaim his innocence. ” Of course I’m innocent, you know that. I was in prison for 23 years. I’m not happy to be here. The worst thing is not to be in prison”he said, before positioning himself as a victim: “I was not defended. I was sacrificed on the altar of their nefarious interests”. On another video, we also saw Marc Dutroux enjoying a walk alone in the courtyard of the penitentiary, having fun sliding on the icy ground.
