For nearly a century the case of Guillaume Seznec, accused of killing his business partner even though no body or weapon was ever found, has fascinated France as one of the country's most notorious legal mysteries.Three days later Seznec returned home alone, saying that after a series of car breakdowns on their way to the capital, Quemeneur had wanted to return by train.Police later claimed Seznec himself sent the telegram.Seznec was freed for good behavior by Charles de Gaulle in 1946 . Prosecutors have denied 14 requests to reopen the case since 1924, most recently in 2006 .In a 2015 book, Langlois claimed that Seznec's son Guillaume had recorded a conversation with his nephew in 1978, describing his version of events.Besides Guillaume and his parents, only one other person, a housemaid named Angele, knew the truth.
