True crime fans will be glad to know about Netflix’s new documentary, titled ‘The Woman and the Murderer’, narrating the horrific crimes of serial killer Guy Georges.
The 1-hour-32-minute documentary highlights the arrest of the serial killer, thanks to the work of a police officer and one of the victim’s mothers. If you have watched the documentary and are curious to know more about Georges’ arrest, we cover the events that led to his downfall and where the serial killer is now.
What Happened to Guy Georges?
Carrying the nickname, ‘The Beast of Bastille’, Guy Georges murdered a shocking number of women in and around Paris between 1991 and 1997. His attacks were sporadic throughout this time and he gradually began to leave more fingerprints behind at the scene of the crime, which revealed to the authorities that all of the murders were connected.
The killer was arrested by the authorities in 1998 after he became lazy and left vital clues at his crime scene. After matching Georges’ DNA, he was arrested for the murder of seven women.
Georges’ trial took place in 2001 when he was sentenced to life in prison without parole for 22 years.
It was revealed that Georges had already served time in prison for assault and weapons charges. It was reported that during his parole, he continued to commit several more crimes.
Where is Guy Georges Now?
Since Georges’ sentencing, the serial killer has been serving his time at the Maison Centrale Ensisheim (Ensisheim Central House), established as a former convent in 1811.
The facility holds around 196 prisoners, some of which are high-profile criminals, and Georges was brought in when he was 38 years old. The serial killer is now 58, who still has a long life ahead of him as a detained criminal.
