Marković's murder is still unsolved. In a further development, sexually explicit photos, allegedly of Claude Pompidou, Pompidou's wife, were found. A former police chief, Lucien Aimé-Blanc, involved in obtaining the photos, stated that they had been planted by established Gaullist clans who were opposed to Pompidou. Their veracity was then challenged. (en)
