A Married Couple Gone And Found Death After 75 Years

On the morning of August 15, 1942, a married couple named Marcelin and Francine Dumoulin left their home on a meadow near the Swiss Alps, where they fed and milked cows. But the couple never returned home until it left a long mystery behind.


Their youngest daughter, Monique Udry-Dumoulin, 11, began to worry when her mother and father had not been home for a day. She started crying and then go to her neighbors to tell about her parents disappearance. The villagers then began the search but found no results. The couple has not been seen for 75 years.

Finally, in July 2017, a body was found in an ice cube by a worker near the Les Diablerets Resort at 2,615 meters. The body is believed to be the body of Marcelin and Francine after DNA testing. When found, both bodies were in a state of decline.

There were also backpacks, bowls, a glass bottle, shoes, and identification documents on the body. At the time of his disappearance, Marcelin was 40 and worked as a shoe maker. The wife is 37 years old and works as a teacher. The two left behind seven children. After their disappearance, the seven sisters finally settled with their aunt in the Alps.

The couple fell into a crack of ice, where they were trapped and hidden for decades. When
Tsanfleuron glaciers began to shrink, exposing their bodies to freezing conditions. Ice kept the bodies of those who were found with their goods still in good condition.

According to regional authorities, this kind of thing is not something that has ever happened before. Due to climate change, receding glaciers regularly expose the frozen bodies of people who have disappeared for years and even decades.
