According to reports in the French press, Fabrice Vial, President of Group Vial and CNC (formerly Couach Yachts), was killed aboard his yacht around 1 a.m. on Friday, August 12, while the vessel was in Porto Vecchio.

An article on www.ladepeche.fr states that Vial apparently was shot and sustained a fatal wound between his neck and upper back. Sources say that a RIB came close enough to the yacht for someone to fire shots.

A murder investigation has been opened and the gendarmerie is investigating, Le nouvel Observateur reports.
