BEA final report: http://www.bea.aero/docspa/2013/cn-y130105/pdf/cn-y130105.pdf
"...3.2 Causes of the accident
An entrance to the cloudy area, voluntary or not, following a continuation of the flight in IMC who the pilot was not capable of mastering.
Strong motivation to realize the flight, consolidated by the shortly take-off of a DA42 towards the same destination, as well as the absence of IFR training in the flight without visibility probably contributed to the accident."
