At the judge’s office, his two lawyers Mes Boguet and Chmani and the ad hoc administrator should allow the child to speak with confidence. Even though the framework for this consultation is new to him. Taking this difficulty into account: the still imperfect chronological memory of a 6-year-old child at the time of the events.

“I heard bad words”

On December 15, 2020, Louis and his mother are watching a TV show, “France has an incredible talent”, on the M6. Around 10.30pm “we hugged Dad in bed,” Louis says. Cedric has gone to bed. Louis does not have school the next day. Delphine asks her to brush her teeth and go into her room. What he’s doing around 10:55 p.m., before the program ends.

Louis says, “Sometimes they quarreled. I heard bad words. After hearing that they might do such things …” Heard by an investigator asking him to clarify his words, Louis stretches his arms horizontally. “So since that is the case, we will divorce. Maybe it was mom or dad who said it. Me who did nothing to me. After that I fell asleep and heard nothing more ”.

During his hearing on January 22, the second, the child said he heard swear words. But do not talk about a quarrel that night. In contrast to the general context where quarrels were frequent in the couple, in the process of divorce. During these arguments, Louis used to intervene between his parents. Delphine had a lover and had to rebuild his life with him in early 2021. On this aspect, Louis adds in his own words: “I saw the child’s husband”. This is Delphine’s lover, the father of a 3-year-old child that the boy had seen in the video with his mother.

“Sometimes I got up when my sister cried to wake up Dad”

Louis also tells that he got up “sometimes” to wake his father when his little sister cried in the middle of the night. But during the night between 15 and 16 December, Cédric Jubillar himself declares to have been awakened around 1 p.m. 03.45 of the tears from the 2-year-old girl who had lost her pacifier. Then he would have gotten up. That was when he would have discovered his wife’s disappearance. Are Cédric Jubillar’s statements consistent with the habits or daily life described by Louis or by those close to Delphine? The investigating judges are also seeking confirmation.

Brave, endowed with a strength of character that would allow him to “put things in perspective,” according to Me Laurent Boguet, Louis shows no concern or anxiety at the approach to this hearing before the investigating judges. . He changed schools. He made new friends. Louis and his 2-year-old sister have been welcomed since their father’s imprisonment, with Stéphanie, Delphine’s sister.
