How was the evening from December 15 to 16, 2020 in the house of Delphine and Cédric Jubillar in Cagnac-les-Mines in the Tarn? The hearing this week before the investigating chamber of the Toulouse Court of Appeal allowed certain times to be specified, but gray areas persist. La Dépêche du Midi takes stock
Despite the continued detention of Cédric Jubillar requested by the investigating chamber of the Toulouse Court of Appeal, Thursday, July 8, some elements come to consolidate the defense since the court qualifies the important points of the accusation. Present at the wording of the judgment, the suspect's lawyers remain combative.
“On reading this judgment, the reasoning of the court is less peremptory because it is necessary to investigate in particular the meaning of the car parked in front of the Jubillar house and the use of Delphine Jubillar's telephone , two times during the night of December 15 to 16, declares Me Alexandre Martin, surrounded by Me Emmanuelle Franck and Me Jean-Baptiste Alary.
"There has never been a duvet wash"
First, the schedule of the "shrill" cries heard by two neighbors, more than 130 meters from the Jubillar house (without anyone else hearing them) at 11:07 p.m. on December 15, should be fine-tuned.
In addition, the duvet was never washed in the washing machine when the gendarmes arrived in the house, at 4:50 a.m., after Cédric Jubillar had called him reporting the disappearance of his wife. Even less laundry in progress. This duvet will not be found in the washing machine drum until December 17, 34 hours later, as the defense revealed.
The fog in Delphine's car, a fragile element of the case
There are also traces of Delphine Jubillar's blood mixed with her husband's sperm, on the left sleeve of Cedric's pajamas, which are not "convincing" elements, according to the court. Likewise, the mist in Delphine's car, suggesting a human presence in this vehicle which could have been moved at night, becomes a fragile element of the dossier.
Finally, investigations are also to be carried out on the “WhatsApp” connection of Delphine Jubillar's phone at 12:11 a.m. on December 16 and on the triggering of her device's camera at 1:33 a.m. For the court, there is no certainty that it was Delphine Jubillar, herself, who used her phone at these precise times.
"Prevent pressure on witnesses"
According to Corinne Chassagne, the president of the investigative chamber of the Toulous court of appeal, the maintenance in prison of Cédric is intended to "prevent pressure on witnesses because there are serious and concordant indications that suggest that Delphine Jubillar is dead. And that Cédric Jubillar, her husband, is involved in her murder ".
Cédric Jubillar always proclaims his innocence and says he is in no way involved in the disappearance of his wife, nurse and mother of 33 years who wanted to start a new life with her lover. His body has never been found.
