New searches were launched on Monday January 17 in Cagnac-les-Mines, in the Tarn, near the home of the Jubillar couple, to find the body of Delphine, who has been missing since December 2020.
The research started in a farm at a place called Drignac, which had burned down last April and where several excavations had already been carried out without result. Investigators also targeted a hamlet not far from the Jubillar couple’s house.
According to information from TF1 and LCI, a research perimeter of fifteen hectares was installed on Monday morning. Gendarmes and soldiers from the Specialized Operational Excavations (FOS), an army unit, are mobilized.
These excavations are organized after the statements of a former fellow prisoner of Cédric Jubillar, who told investigators that the suspect had confessed to him having buried Delphine near this farm. Revelations that the plasterer painter would also have made to his new spouse Séverine. It was following this information that the latter was placed in police custody last December for concealment of a corpse, before being released without charge.
The excavations undertaken should last several days. The gendarmes hope to find the body of the missing nurse, believing that it will provide them with valuable clues to elucidate this case.
Cédric Jubillar is still imprisoned in Seysses prison, near Toulouse, despite recurring requests for release. The judges will also carry out a new interrogation of the main suspect, on February 11, in particular on the recent statements of his former fellow prisoner and his new companion.
