ALESSIA & LIVIA SCHEPP
In the suburb of Saint-Sulpice in Switzerland Irina Schepp lived with her six year old twin daughters. They were the light of her life after a failed marriage with her ex Mathias Schepp.
Both parents had successful careers and loved their daughters. Irina was a lawyer and Mathias an engineer. They lived in the same neighbourhood and shared custody of Alessia and Livia. Everything seemed better since Irina and the girls weren't constantly under Mathias rules.
Alessia, Liva and Mathias were looking forward to spending the weekend of January 28th 2011 together. Mathias picked up the girls on Friday and he told Irina he would drop the twins off on Sunday evening. On Saturday he texted Irina saying he would return the twins on Monday dropping them off at school in the morning deviating from the original plan to return them on Sunday. On Sunday Irina texted him back but didn't get an answer. Allesia and Livia were seen playing with neighbours around noon that day.
But at 5.00pm Mathias was seen crossing the border into France, he was no longer in the county and neither were his daughters. When he didn't return the twins on Monday Irina contacted the police.
The twins were seen with Mathias on a ferry to the island of Corsica. In Corsica the girls were also seen a couple of times with their father and Mathias travelled from Bastia to Toulon were he arrived on Wednesday morning 7.00am but two hours later he was seen on camera, alone.
On Thursday February 3rd Mathias was found dead under a train, leaving the most important question unanswered: where were Alessia and Livia?
While on the run Mathias wrote letters to Irina saying that he had killed Alessia and Livia. In one of them was written: "my dear, I wanted to die with my daughters but it didn't go that way, I will be the last to die. You won't see them again."
Alessia and Livia's body's have never been found, they are still missing to this day. Maybe everything is different then it seems and the girls are still out there somewhere.
