Joanna Parrish's family lawyer says convicted serial killer Michel Fourniret has confessed to killing the British woman in 1990.

A convicted serial killer has confessed to murdering a British woman in France almost three decades ago, according to a lawyer for the victim's family.
Joanna Parrish, 20, had been working as a language assistant at a secondary school in Auxerre before she was found dead in a river on 17 May 1990, soon after going missing.
A post-mortem examination found she had been raped and beaten.
On Friday, her family's lawyer Didier Seban said Michel Fourniret, who was jailed for life in 2008 for killing seven girls, was interviewed by magistrates in Paris and admitted murdering Ms Parrish along with French teenager Marie-Angele Domece.
Ms Domece disappeared in 1988 and her body has never been found.

Mr Seban said: "He made detailed and repeated confessions. He clearly recognises, and this several times over, having killed Joanna Parrish and Marie-Angele Domece.
"It's a new development, a resolution of the affair, it seems, in a remarkable way... it's hard (for the family) but the end of a long legal battle."

He said he hoped Fourniret, who was dubbed the Ogre of the Ardennes over his previous killings, would now stand trial for Parrish's murder.
Prosecutors in Paris would not comment on the apparent confession with an investigation now under way.
A lawyer for Fourniret would not respond to a news agency request for comment.
The serial killer had initially been charged with kidnapping and murdering Ms Parrish and Ms Domece in 2008 but the court of appeal dismissed the case in 2011.

His wife Monique Olivier had twice accused him of being responsible for the killings but later retracted her claims.
Mr Seban said she would have to be questioned again.
Fourniret had always denied murdering Ms Parrish and Ms Domece, including during his 2008 trial at which he was found guilty of murdering the seven girls.

A killer serving a life sentence for battering a woman with a brick and raping her in a graveyard has been recaptured after he absconded from prison.
Keith Whitehouse, who killed and raped 21-year-old Suzanne Bromiley while on leave from a 30-month kidnapping sentence in 1991, failed to appear for a roll call at Leyhill open prison in south Gloucestershire on Saturday evening.
However, Avon & Somerset Police tweeted on Sunday morning to say he had been arrested by officers in Gloucestershire.
It is the second time the 56-year-old has absconded from prison, having killed Ms Bromiley during five-days' leave from Risley jail in Warrington.
Whitehouse - who was known to have a psychopathic personality disorder - also stabbed his victim in the head after meeting her at a day centre for unemployed people in Brighton.
