For years, the story of Laetitia Toureaux’s murder has floated on the margins of scholarly literature about sensational stories from the 1930s 20â•‡ /â•‡murder i n th e Mé tro without ever attracting a serious study. 57 Pa rt I Laetitia Toureaux This page intentionally left blank j 1 Le Crime du Me'tro A Perfect Crime On Sunday, May 16, 1937, a striking, twenty-nine-year-old woman, elegantly dressed in a tightly fitted green suit, walked out of a bal musette called L’Ermitage. The squeals of lively accordion music and the murmur of laughter and conversation quite probably escorted her into the street that day.
The influx of immigrants was a source of real concern on the part of the French public and its government as well, especially after France began to experience the effects of the global economic depression in the 1930s, and French angst about immigrants was further compounded by a growing sense that another war was on the horizon. Right-wing journalists played upon the fears of ordinary French citizens that immigrants were criminals, while government officials fretted about the political intrigue and social agitation that they believed immigrants, and especially the Italians, fomented in France.
One constant runs through all these possible scenarios for Toureaux’s murder: the probability of success for any one of them rose enormously if, as the evidence suggests, Toureaux was on her way to meet someone, and her assassin knew this. In fact, it is quite possible that the murderer knew what train she would be likely to take, as the Porte de Charenton station was the terminus of the line, and lay in wait for her. On weekends and holidays, French trains ran on a special schedule. There were fewer of them, and one could calculate fairly closely when a Métro train would arrive in and depart from the station.
