From our special correspondent in Chambéry (Savoie),

"He always wants to give a good image of himself."

At the bar, this Monday, May 10, a psychologist summed up the impression that Nordahl Lelandais has given since the start of his trial for the murder of Arthur Noyer: that of a man in


of himself, concerned about present a smooth face and far removed from the reputation of

This self-control

"is usual"


"more specific in Mr. Lelandais"

, underlined the expert.

“He examines the effect that his words can have on his interlocutors.

When I met him, he was very attentive to the questions that I asked but also to the notes that I took, correcting if he considered that I had not written down what was necessary ”

, she continued, considering that this attitude

"hid a vulnerability"

It is impossible to say with certainty the origin of this vulnerability, but this


could in part come from the

“lack of involvement”

of Nordahl Lelandais' father in childhood.

“It got tied up little by little.

In his youth, he may have had requests that were not answered in an appropriate or sufficiently substantiated manner, repeatedly over time. "

Dogs, “emotional buoy”

This vulnerability can also explain several important elements in the life of the thirty-something.

First, the choice of the army.

For four years, Nordahl Lelandais worked as a dog handler in a dog unit.

"It is often said of the army that it is a second family"

, launched the first psychologist, before the second insists on the

"very strong mode of belonging"

of the army.

"love of his life"


“The dog is an animal that is part of me,”

Why such an attachment?

Dogs are

"unwavering resources"

for a man who

"is very sensitive to separation"

, argued the second psychologist.

"He organizes an emotional buoy around him so that he never finds himself in a situation of emotional vulnerability

," she explained.

The idea is to be loved forever and ever by these animals. ”

"He is in concealment"

When the subject of the death of Corporal Arthur Noyer was raised in interview, the first psychologist saw on the face of Nordahl Lelandais "

very suddenly flow big tears, like marbles, which dried up just as quickly"


“I found these tears very devoid of affect, a bit mechanical.

It lacked authenticity, ”

she told the bar.

The second psychologist, who notably met the thirty-something the day after the discovery of the body of little Maëlys, also saw the accused cry, but for her part

"had the impression that it was sincere"


“He was crying, he was in great pain.

He said he thought a lot about families, that of Arthur Noyer and that of Maëlys. "
