the essential
The investigators left the surroundings of the Drignac farm in Cagnac-les-Mines (Tarn), near the home of the Jubillars, to focus their research on a new area, located a few kilometers away, near the greenway. A slope robot is clearing the area, in preparation for larger excavations to come in the coming days.

Two weeks after having cordoned off the Drignac road, in Cagnac-les-Mines (Tarn), and squared the surroundings of the burnt farm, the investigators seem to have given up searching this area, where they did not find any clues allowing them to solve the mystery of the disappearance of Delphine Jubillar.

The search should move to another area in the coming days. According to our information, the investigators are particularly interested in an area below the Saint-Dalmaze cemetery in Cagnac-les-Mines, opposite the solar farm. A few kilometers from the Jubillar’s home, this sector is close to the greenway.

A gendarmerie car was also present near the greenway, chemin de Drignac.

A team of The Midi Dispatch, present at the scene, noted the presence of several vehicles, including a military truck transporting men.

The confessions of Cédric Jubillar to a fellow prisoner

The investigators headed for Drignac, near Cagnac-les-Mines, following statements by a cell neighbor of the husband, Cédric Jubillar, at the Seysses remand center, near Toulouse. This detainee told investigators that Cédric Jubillar, the main suspect in this case, had told him that he had buried the body of his wife near a farm in this hamlet.

The gendarmes have initiated investigations in this perimeter, more extensive than those carried out at the beginning of 2021. For this, they meticulously passed radars and metal detectors in the steep and difficult to access undergrowth.

Since the disappearance of Delphine Jubillar more than a year ago, her husband repeats that he is innocent. Believing that they had enough evidence against him, the investigating judges indicted him and placed him in pre-trial detention on June 18, 2021.
