A 14-year-old girl was kidnapped, raped and killed in France.

The teenager, known locally as Vanessa, was reportedly put into a car as she was leaving school in Tonneins, in the south-west of the country.

Her body was found by police in an abandoned house.

A 31-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of rape and murder.

The prosecutor in Agen, southern France, told reporters on Saturday that when police tried to arrest the man at his home in the southern French city of Marmande, he said, “I know why you’re here,” and confessed.

Authorities said the man had previously been sentenced to a 15-day suspended sentence for sexual aggression towards another minor in 2006, when the suspect was just 15 years old.

Dante Rinaudo, mayor of Tonneins, told reporters Monday that Vanesa’s parents, who are of Colombian descent, want to bury their daughter in Grenada, Spain, where the family lived for several years before moving to France.

An online fundraiser has been launched to support the family and Mr Rinaudo added that he will organize a march for the victim on Friday.

The Tonneins incident comes just weeks after France was rocked by the brutal murder of a 12-year-old girl named Lola.

Her battered body was found in a suitcase outside her home in Paris.

The main suspect in this case, a 24-year-old woman, faces charges of murder, rape and torture.

Lola’s killing became a source of political tension, with opposition parties seizing on the suspect’s profile – an illegal immigrant – to call for tougher immigration policies.

In both cases, the far-right opposition has criticized the judiciary and politicians for being lenient with crime and not doing enough to keep dangerous individuals off the streets.
