He often acted the same way. In the morning, on a deserted road, he attacked the women from behind and dragged them into the bush. It was usually winter at that time.

The youngest victim was 13 years old, and the oldest 48 years old. And the man who was president of a local football club for several years admitted his actions. According to France24, he is said to have told police, “I like to be discreet and to hide.” “I’m like a hunter.”

The research only gained momentum in 2018 – more than twenty years later. A teenage girl was assaulted in the Belgian border town of Erkelen. In the camera photos, part of the Peugeot 206 and the start of a license plate can be seen. It was enough for the researchers to reach Scala.

The police found a knife, rope and gloves. All the while, he managed to stay out of the hands of justice. One of the victims’ lawyers spoke to the French newspaper Le Télégramme. She says Scala was able to last so long because he “hid his true nature”.

The French judiciary has allocated three weeks to the case. He could face 20 years in prison.
