Spanish police on Monday confirmed finding skeletal remains in the Pyrenees, saying that they probably belong to a French father suspected of killing two teachers in France eight months ago.

The remains were found early Sunday in Pena Oroel in the foothills of the Pyrenees by a man who was out hunting, the Guardia Civil police said.

“In light of the belongings found next to the body, everything suggests it is likely to be the French national who has been missing since July 4th,” it said. “However, we must await final confirmation from DNA tests.”

A report in the Heraldo de Aragón newspaper said the hunter spotted a white crash helmet with a mobile phone, a charger and the body lying nearby.

On July 4th, Aurelie Pardon, a 32-year-old French teacher, and 55-year-old sports teacher Gabriel Fourmigue were shot dead in the French village of Pouyastruc in the Pyrenees.

The suspect, Cedric Tauleygne, fled on a motorcycle that was later found on the Spanish side of the border. Tauleygne was the woman’s former partner.

They had two children together and were in the process of separating.

Mick Jagger’s daughter fined after Ibiza police incident

Jade Jagger, daughter of Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger, was ordered Friday to pay a 1,400-euro ($1,500) fine after her arrest for allegedly assaulting a Spanish policewoman, court documents and police said.

Mick Jagger's daughter fined after Ibiza police incident

The incident occurred on Wednesday evening when police were called to investigate an incident at a restaurant in Ibiza Town, the island’s capital, a statement from the Balearic Islands branch of the SUP police union said.

Following a confrontation, police arrested Jagger, 51, and her male companion, the union said.

At a hearing on Friday, the judge ordered Jagger to pay “a four-month daily fine of 10 euros per day for resisting arrest, and a 20-day fine of 10 euros for causing minor injury,” a court statement said.

It also said she must “pay the victim 800 euros” in compensation.

The court handed her companion “four months of prison for assaulting a figure of authority”.

According to the union, restaurant staff had called the police to report a male customer “insulting and threatening customers and staff” who appeared to be either “drunk or under the influence of drugs”.

When they arrived, the police asked for his details but he “refused, ignoring police instructions and finally assaulting several of them”, it said.

Jagger had “rushed at a policewoman and attacked her, causing her several physical injuries”, prompting police to arrest the pair, it added.

“You cannot attack police with impunity,” the SUP said, indicating it was filing a complaint against her.

Jade Jagger is a jewellery designer and the second daughter of the 79-year-old Rolling Stones frontman, who has eight children, the youngest of whom is six.

She is Jagger’s only daughter with his first wife, the Nicaraguan model and human rights campaigner Bianca Jagger, whom he married in 1971 and divorced eight years later.
