There you go.



Mrs. Porter,

what do you remember from that night?

It was dark,

but I could see.

The sky was

so bright.

There was

a full moon.

It was beautiful.



Peter Porter,

come here please.

Good work

on the fire, bud.

Look at this.

This is a very

beautiful spot.

What about this full moon?

You could get a moon tan.

So tell us about

the meteor shower.

And do you know what

a meteor shower is?

It's the ice and

debris that's...

Well, actually,

the sun is melting the ice off the comet

and that's when

the debris falls loose.

- Do you believe him?

- No.

I don't believe

you either.

Check out

our campsite.

Are you guys hungry?

Yeah, what'd

you bring to eat?

- Hot dogs?

- "Sot" dogs.

This is the Porter family.

Can you turn the little...

Look at that!

...yard this big and

our dog will always be happy.

- Wow. Okay. Oh!

- Hello.


- Oscar!

- Oscar!

What is he doing?

- Oscar!

- Shit!

Excuse me?

Crap. Don't repeat that.

Oscar! Oscar!


Do you see him?

Is everything okay?


Okay, do you

remember anything else?

I just remember



He was eating

my boy alive.


very sketchy details here.

An American man and his young

son holidaying in France

were brutally

killed last night...

The circumstances are very graphic.

...what police believe was

a vicious animal attack.

In what authorities

believe was a brutal animal attack...

...an attack

that has shocked police officers.

Authorities have confirmed the

death of 36-year-old Henry Porter

And Peter Porter.

...found mutilated.

He was just seven years old.

The young mother is the only survivor.

Claire Porter...

...taken by ambulance.

Authorities are hopeful

she will recover...

I have lived here,

my whole life.

Cannot remember

anything like this ever.

People are wondering

what type of animal...

A breed of animal has

yet to be determined.

Police are urging

people to be patient

as they continue with

their investigation.

He was tall and thin.

It had hair all over.

His hands,

they were huge.

You said "he."

A major turn in

this tragic case.

This is now officially

a murder investigation.


suggesting that there may be someone...

...responsible for the death

of the Porter family.

This is not

an animal attack.

Not an animal attack.

What type of man could be

capable of such things?

The question many in

France are asking...

One of the

biggest manhunts in recent times.

An entire community living in fear.

A very peaceful place and what has

happened has shattered that peace.

Major developments in the huge manhunt.

A local man was

taken into custody.

At 14:
52, we apprehended the

suspect at his residence.

Police have identified a man...

...involved in the Porter tragedy.

- The suspect's name is Talan Gwynek.

- ...Talan Gwynek.

- The only suspect...

- ...accused of murder.

This monster of a man...

...refusing to answer police questions.

We also learned that

Gwynek's home in Cerdon...

...is only two miles from

the location of the attack.

Gwynek has been

transferred from Cerdon to Lyon.

But the question,

the validity of the charges.

No clear motive.

No prior criminal records.

Some legal analysts are calling his

arrest an abuse of human rights.

Well, at this stage

there is no factual evidence

to indicate anything more

than an animal attack.

Katherine Moore...

Gwynek's court-appointed attorney...

There is a vague description by a

woman who was very much in shock.

Europe has a long and sordid

history of animalistic murderers.
