They search relentlessly. On the third day of extensive excavations to find the body of Delphine Jubillar, who had been missing for more than a year in the Tarn, the search area was widened on Wednesday January 19, noted an AFP correspondent on the spot. Almost all of the shrubs in the raked area have been cut down, according to the journalist present on this site near Cagnac-les-Mines, where the 33-year-old nurse and her family lived. Her husband Cédric Jubillar, indicted for murder, has been imprisoned in the Seysses remand center, near Toulouse, since his arrest in June 2020.

“There was a lot of ground preparation. The targeted area was cleared before the dogs passed”, told AFP a source close to the investigation. “Today, it is the turn of a specialized team with detection devices, geodetic radars and metal detectors which participate in the excavations”, she added.

An area located below a farm and close to a path was raked. The sector, already partly searched in the weeks following the disappearance of Delphine Jubillar, again caught the attention of investigators after statements by an inmate from a cell next to that of her husband. He claims that Cédric Jubillar told him to have buried the body in the farmhouse, which has since burned down. One of the lawyers close to Delphine Jubillar, Philippe Pressecq, believes little in this hypothesis, considering that the plaster painter “manipulates everyone from the start”.
