The investigators equipped themselves, this Monday, January 24, with a mechanical shovel to clear an area located in Cagnac-les-Mines (Tarn), not far from the Jubillar’s home. The body of the nurse, who disappeared on the night of December 15 to 16, 2020, remains untraceable.
Will investigators find Delphine’s body near the “burnt farm”, described by Cédric Jubillar to a fellow prisoner as the place where he allegedly buried his wife’s body?
In any case, it is on this track that the gendarmes and soldiers were focusing during this second week of excavations.
The road to Drignac, not far from the farm, was combed through using a mechanical shovel and the ground probed by metal detectors.
An unchanged perimeter
Scientific experts from the Criminal Research Institute of the National Gendarmerie and members of the Specialized Operational Search Unit of the 17e Montauban parachute engineer regiment continue their efforts to find the body of the nurse.
“For the moment, nothing new, it is always the same perimeter and the same means which are implemented” since January 17, when the new excavations began, entrusted a source close to the investigation to the AFP.
Still imprisoned in Seysses prison (Haute-Garonne) despite several requests for release, Cédric Jubillar should be questioned again on February 11.
The judges will try to shed light on his recent statements to his fellow prisoner and his new companion, Séverine. She had been placed in police custody last December for “concealment of a corpse” and then released without charge.
