Unwelcome fame

Villers-au-Tertre hit the headlines at the end of July 2010 because the new owner of a house in the village, while trying to plant a tree, found the bones of two newly born children buried in the garden. Subsequently six more bodies were discovered at the recently acquired home of the former proprietor's daughter and son in law. The presumed mother of the deceased children has been placed under judicial investigation[1]
