Celebrated on Friday, the funeral of priest Olivier Maire will be broadcast live

Olivier Maire's funeral will be celebrated in private in the presence of his family, members of the Montfortian congregation and officials, on Friday August 13, 2021 at 14:30 p.m. in the basilica of Saint Laurent-sur-Sèvre.

Olivier Maire, Provincial Superior of the Montfort Fathers, was found dead Monday in Saint Laurent-sur-Sèvre. On Tuesday, his autopsy revealed that "The victim presented six lesions, all located on the head", without determining the murder weapon.

The parquet floor of La Roche-sur-Yon specifies:

“These significant brain lesions resulted in internal and external hemorrhages, the death being, according to the conclusions of the forensic scientist, intervening quickly after the blows were delivered. "

Emmanuel Abayisenga, a Rwandan refugee, went to the Mortagne-sur-Sèvre gendarmerie brigade on Monday, claiming to have killed the priest. He has since been taken into custody and then hospitalized because his custody was considered "incompatible with his state of health".

The funeral of Olivier Maire will be celebrated in private in the presence of his family, members of the Montfortian congregation and officials, on Friday August 13, 2021 at 14:30 p.m. in the basilica of Saint Laurent-sur-Sèvre.

With the family's consent, they will be broadcast live on KTO TV. You will be able to attend by clicking here, or in the video below.
