An even shorter time span

He had reported seeing the girl pass in front of his house at 11.15am, then seeing her again less than ten minutes later in the opposite direction. However, thanks to the CCTV cameras in front of his house, he realized that he had miscalculated.

I was only at home for a minute. It takes two to get to the road, which means that I passed Lina at 11.20am, and by 11.25am she had already vanished.

It was around 11.20am that Lina disappeared from the scene, sending a video of her outfit to her boyfriend Tao. Jean-Marc Chipon came across her right at that moment, as he reported seeing her with her cell phone in hand. But at 11:22, her phone stopped transmitting. So what happened to the 15-year-old girl happened in a very short space of time. Further videos from surveillance cameras may help to advance the investigation.
