About Michel Fourniret
Michel Fourniret was a French serial killer who was convicted of the murders of seven girls and young women between 1987 and 2003. He was dubbed the “Ogre of the Ardennes” by the media. He also attempted to murder five others, but was unsuccessful in some cases.
Fourniret was born on April 4, 1942 in Sedan, France and grew up with his father and two sisters. His father was an abusive alcoholic, which left Fourniret with mental health issues.
