Do curators agree that here is enough evidence to treat it as a confirmed connection? A Belgian, Jean-Paul Mulder, said in as late as 2008 that the DNA profiles investigated in these cases were significantly different. Sure, the story is probably newsworthy, but does that also make it a true story? I'd argue that this connection has yet to be proven.

In my experience, I have found Le Point to be accurate, sometimes sensational, but a publication that scoops the others!

Well, this 'scoop' is surely bouncing around, gaining a truckload of reactions and rewrites in various media/countries right now—of that I'm certain! Though I'll remain a healthy sceptic a while longer :)
