what we know about the custody of Cédric’s companion

Used to twists and turns, the case of the disappearance of Delphine Jubillar experienced an important one this Wednesday, December 15, a year after the facts. The new companion of Cédric, her husband, was taken into custody for “concealing a corpse”. What do we know?

Interrogated for “concealment of a corpse”

The 40-year-old was arrested and then taken into police custody to be heard by investigators from 7 a.m. CNEWS learned that it was a rogatory commission for “concealing a corpse”. What to wonder about the discovery of a body. His lawyer, master Johann Ricci, indeed questioned himself, affirming that to his knowledge, no discovery of this kind had been communicated.

Accomplice or innocent?

Admitting that he has not yet been able to get in touch with his client, and therefore does not know what is precisely his accusation, his lawyer has already started to rule out the track of complicity. Relying on the fact that she started her affair with Cédric well after the facts (four months), she had no reason to help him, if ever this was implied by the investigators. She would also be convinced of the innocence of Cédric Jubillar, said Master Ricci on CNEWS.

According to Le Parisien, she would also have provided an alibi during the preliminary investigation, which the gendarmes checked. She would have spent the night of December 15 to 16, 2020 with a man. “We stayed together constantly between the early evening and 6am,” he told our colleagues.

A controversial couple

While they had already crossed paths, Cédric Jubillar and this 44-year-old woman got closer during the beatings organized to find Delphine. Their affair was unveiled last spring. The husband of the disappeared then posted a photo of his new partner and him on Facebook, triggering a stir.

Since the photo’s publication on Facebook, the 40-year-old has been harassed daily on social networks, his lawyer denounced. “She receives a surge of hatred, death threats, she is very psychologically affected”, he explained, specifying that a complaint had been filed.

Other people heard

As part of the judicial investigation, six other people who had been in contact with Cédric Jubillar were heard in open hearing, CNEWS learned from a source close to the case. Two of them are said to be co-detainees of the main suspect.
