The lifeless body of a 30-year-old man was found at the foot of the Pyrenees, in a nearby canal.
This is Brice Louge, mysteriously disappeared last February from the village of Labarthe-Rivière (Haute-Garonne).
An autopsy will take place in the next few hours.
It should allow investigators, who, at this stage, deem an accident or suicide plausible, to definitively rule out the criminal trail.
“A lot of fantasies around this disappearance”
This farm worker vanished during the night of Saturday February 19 to Sunday February 20.
A little earlier in the evening, he had been surprised in the bed of his boss by the son of the latter, had indicated the public prosecutor of Saint-Gaudens, Christophe Amunzateguy.

"There are a lot of fantasies around this disappearance because there is a story of adultery," added the prosecutor, stressing the fact that a judicial investigation was opened for "disturbing disappearance", not for homicide.
" Handyman "
According to his parents' lawyers, Brice Louge had worked in his bosses' farm for ten years, "as a jack of all trades", whether it was plumbing, electricity or agricultural work.
Joris Morer, one of these lawyers, declared after the discovery of the body that his clients, “whose state you imagine, will finally be able to grieve”.
