"I have known fear and the terrors of solitude. I have known those fair-weather friends we call tranquilizers and drugs." - Yves Saint Laurant (New York Times obituary)

In 1967, Yves Saint Laurent produced "La Vilaine Lulu", illustrated 'tales for sadistic and mature children.'

Between 1999 and 2002, a large paedophile ring operated in the town of Angers in France.

At least 65 adults were involved.

13 women reportedly raped boys.

There were 45 abused children.

The youngest of the abused children was 6 months old.

The oldest was aged 14.

Some of the children were prostituted and raped by their own parents and grandparents.

21 of the 23 families involved in the case had been monitored by French social workers.

The first report of abuse was in 1999, but the investigation only began in 2002.

Three of those put on trial had a previous conviction for child abuse, and were supposed to be under police supervision.

Some of the abused children talked of a group of men who arrived at the abuser Franck V.'s apartment wearing suits and ties, with their faces hidden behind masks.

Franck V.'s lawyer Pascal Rouiller said he believed the men were part of a wealthy pedophile ring.

Le Monde said Angers' police and judges were using "evasive justifications" about why they missed more than a year of warnings about child prostitution.

On 3 June 2003, The Guardian had a news story entitled: 'Toulouse officials ordered murder, says serial killer'

"Al├Ęgre (a jailed serial killer), a policeman's son, organised the city's prostitution business, providing under-age girls for sadomasochistic orgies at a courthouse in the city and at a chateau owned by the town council." (THE DARK CORNERS OF LIFE DUTROUX_NOTES)

On 21 July 2004, The Daily Mail reported: "For 14 years Leeds student Joanna Parrish's murder in France has been unsolved. Now the arrest of a serial killer poses the chilling question: was she murdered by a cabal of high powered men obsessed with rape and torture?

"The case for the conspiracy theorists was further strengthened in 1984 when a horribly mutilated woman escaped from a house in a village close to Auxerre and led police to a cellar where she and two others had been imprisoned for up to three months and subjected to appalling abuse.

"A list of 50 people, rumoured to include several French 'notables' who had paid various rates to torture and abuse the women, was discovered by police. It would later go missing from a courtroom in Auxerre, and only Claude Dunand, a factory worker and his wife, Monique - who both lived in the house - were jailed."
