Alpine shepherd hermit

A salacious story in The Independent describes “The Alpine Shepherd and the Parisian”: A French Alps hermit, described as simple, owned rundown property that could be used for ski chalets. The property was coveted by a wealthy jet-setting Parisian woman. She duped the hermit into marrying her, though they live in two different worlds; she occasionally visited him. Then the hermit mysteriously dies in a road accident, in a car driven by the woman’s accomplice. But when the hermit’s will is unveiled, it deliberately leaves her nothing.
