PARIS, FRANCE: Authorities have provided a terrifying update in the sickening murder case of Lola Daviet. Investigators suspect that Dahbia B, the woman responsible for the heinous crime, may have confused the 12-year-old for her mother.
Dahbia B, an Algerian native came to France in 2016 on a student residence permit. The 24-year-old was hoping to move in with her sister Friha B in the same building as the Daviet family, who own properties across Northern France. However, Daviet's mother Delphine refused to give the homeless woman an access pass for accommodation. It was likely that this caused a rift between Dahbia and Delphine which culminated in the horrific murder.

Investigators believe that the crime could be an act of revenge. As France Bleu reported that the homeless woman may have "mistaken" the child for her mother. Daviet's body was tied up and packed in a suitcase when found near the building in the city's 19th arrondissement.
Dahbia was obligated to leave French territory in August after she was unable to prove a valid residence permit. She was later arrested at the airport on August 21. She has reportedly no diagnosed psychological problems but she kept switching between countering and accepting the facts of the case during the encounter. When shown pictures of Daviet's body, the suspect, who is a victim of sexual abuse herself, seemed to have no pity. "It does not make me hot or cold. I too was raped and saw my parents die in front of me," she reportedly said, as per The Daily Mail.
The CCTV footage showed Dahbia and Daviet walking together. It is still not clear howDahbia convinced Daviet into following her into the basement of her flat. Recently found evidence confirmed that the suspect had also talked about selling body parts. "Evidence suggests that the girl was taken into the basement of the flat, where she was tortured, and raped, before being strangled and having her throat cut. The suspect is believed to suffer from serious psychological problems. She was living on the street, but had friends and family in the Paris area," an investigating source said, per the Daily Mail.
While Dahbia is in custody, a 43-year-old man known to the main suspect was also facing charges after allegedly providing her with a car over the weekend. Lola Daviet went missing on Friday, October 14. Her parents consulted the police for help on that very evening. Soon, an investigation began and six people were arrested. After proving four of the alleged suspects innocent, the cops are now down with two, which include Dahbia and her accomplice. However, investigators confirmed that Dahbia was alone in her act. "She acted alone and gratuitously and defiled her victim before killing her," as reported.
