Presented as heavy charges weighing on Cédric Jubillar, indicted and imprisoned on June 18 for the murder of his wife Delphine, these disturbing clues, put end to end, constitute the basis of the accusation strongly contested by the defense. Many gray areas remain on these elements which also conceal an element of fragility.
1 – Strident cries heard at 11:07 p.m.
During his press conference on June 18, the public prosecutor revealed the existence of two testimonies from the neighborhood, a mother and her daughter having heard these “shrill cries of a woman in distress”, at 11:07 p.m. Tuesday, December 15, 2020. A testimony collected from December 17 during the neighborhood survey. Cries coming from the Jubillar house, rue Yves-Montand, in Cagnac-les-Mines. But according to the defense, these witnesses are more than 100 meters from the house where these screams come from. “How is it that these witnesses hear these cries while the closest neighbors hear nothing”, reacts one of the three defense lawyers, Me Jean-Baptiste Alary.

Moreover, during his first hearing before the gendarmes, Louis, 6, the eldest of the Jubillar couple, revealed to the investigators the next day (Wednesday, December 16, at 4:05 p.m.), that they had heard nothing the day before. It was only during a second hearing, in January, that the boy evoked an argument between his parents that evening, mimicking a scene to investigators that he had not seen since, he said, “I was asleep at that time “. He never mentions his mother’s screams. Here too, the defense intends to provide details on the exact chronology of the facts, between 10:55 p.m., time at which Delphine sends an SMS to her lover, and 11:07 p.m.
2 – Delphine’s duvet in the washing machine
It is 4:50 am on Wednesday December 16, 2020 when two gendarmes from the Tarn group arrive in the Jubillar house. Cedric had contacted the gendarmerie less than an hour earlier to report the disappearance of his wife who, according to him, had to walk the dogs. “We are in the process of divorce, she is gone, it is not normal. The last time was in early August, she spent the night outside looking at the stars. But here, it is winter,” said- he, when called.
The gendarmes notice sobs in his voice. When the two soldiers are there, they see no scene of violence or struggle in the house. No blood. They see laundry in a washing machine that does not turn. It was only later in the morning that the duvet in which Delphine slept is also found in the machine. The couple made separate bedrooms and Delphine slept on the sofa in the living room. But this linen and this duvet were not analyzed at the time.
Samples and technical analyzes will be carried out subsequently on this washing machine and on this duvet. Without convincing results. Cedric Jubillar would have explained to have washed it because the dogs were put on it. The first responder gendarmes were far from imagining, at that time, the turn these events were going to take.
3 – Fog on the windshield of the car
At what time of the day on December 16, did the gendarmes notice condensation on a window of Delphine’s car, a Peugeot 207, parked in an unusual way in the back market, below the house? There is nothing to indicate that these findings were made as of 4:50 am. According to the prosecution, this mist is the sign of “a human presence inside the vehicle”. A recent presence without it being possible to say that the car was moved during the night. A precision which is very important.

But it remains to be seen when this mist was noticed by the gendarmes. Cédric Jubillar would have used this car after the arrival of the first soldiers. The mist observed on the windshield would therefore not be related to a mysterious movement made in the middle of the night.
4 – Cédric Jubillar’s inconsistencies
There is this account of the disappearance of his wife drawn up by Cédric Jubillar himself, on December 16, 2020. “I went to bed around 11 pm. Around 4 am, I was woken up by the little girl’s tears and I discovers the absence of Dephine in the house. I contact some friends asking them if she is not at home… “Cédric specifies when Delphine left to walk the dogs, in the middle of the night, dressed in a white down jacket and provided with his cell phone.

Later, he will defend the thesis of a voluntary departure. Hypothesis very quickly rejected by the investigators. These first statements were deemed incompatible with the habits and personality of Delphine Jubillar, who rarely walked dogs and was afraid of the dark. Shortly before 11 p.m., 10:55 p.m. exactly, she had sent a selfie to her lover from Montauban, before going to bed. We saw her in nightwear, wearing a white “playsuit”. A piece of clothing found in the laundry basket of the house.
5 – A pedometer that records 40 steps (only)
This other element of the accusation supports the fact that Cédric Jubillar would not have searched much for his wife who disappeared during the night. On his mobile phone, the pedometer recorded 40 steps taken between the moment he discovers the absence of his wife (around 3:45) and the arrival of the gendarmes (4:50). “A very fragile index, contests the defense. It is still necessary that Cédric Jubillar has his phone on him during the time of this research for this pedometer to count his steps. This is far from being demonstrated.”
