The investigators of the High Mountain Gendarmerie Platoon (PGHM) of Chamonix were able to establish that he was a man from the Nord department.

The Chamonix PGHM was able to get in touch with the family of the deceased. At the time, in 1992, the 21-year-old man started climbing the Dômes de Miage (3673 m) and is said to have fallen into a crevasse. But the PGHM has yet to consult the archives of investigators at the time. The case dates back over 29 years ago, when the PGHM was based in Saint-Gervais.
