In the streets of Cagnac-les-Mines (Tarn), suffocated by the heat, calm reigns at the beginning of the afternoon.
Passers-by are rare.
Only a few bowlers are waiting for their colleagues to start a game.
If the inhabitants learned of the placement in police custody, this Wednesday, June 16, of Cédric Jubillar, the husband of Delphine, missing since mid-December 2020, no one is very talkative about this case which has left a lasting mark on the village. .
“It seemed long.
As soon as we heard the gendarmes or firefighters pass, we thought of that, ”recognizes Guy, who walks his dog near the bowling alley.
"This story had to end one day," he says, "relieved" that things are progressing, six months after the disappearance of the 33-year-old young woman.
Although he is aware that nothing is yet decided, he hopes that "Mr. Jubillar will reveal some things".
“His photo on Facebook with another woman was not welcome,” he said.

They too in the know, the neighbors of the Jubillar couple are suspended from the progress of the investigation, pending an outcome that is slow to come.

For the mayor of the town, Patrice Norkowski, it is indeed necessary to "remain very careful". “We had the impression that the investigation was stagnating, because we had no information, despite the requests that had been made to the prosecutor. Even if there is no denouement yet, to see that things move, it is a relief. "
While we learn over the course of the day that Nadine, Cédric Jubillar's mother, has been taken into custody, the information spreads slowly in the village according to the returns from work. But according to the tobacconist of Cagnac-les-Mines, few people are yet aware. “Discussions around the case had subsided, assures Thierry. But there, it is sure that it will start again. We still believe that it only happens elsewhere… ”Like everyone else, he now hopes for a quick outcome, even if he understands that this kind of investigation takes time. In Carmaux, no agitation was noticed this Wednesday at the home of Nadine Jubillar and her companion.
