2009/11. Thierry Tilly, an Oxford based Frenchman, has been arrested over allegations that he kidnapped, tortured and brainwashed several generations of an aristocratic family into giving up their fortune. Eleven members of the De VÈdrines family, headed by 88-year-old matriarch Guillemette, severed ties with relatives and friends and barricaded themselves in their chateau near Bordeaux for five years after meeting Mr Tilly in the late 90s. Three years ago, the group moved to Oxford and lived various suburban homes, several of which they failed to pay rent on and were taken to the small claims courts.
