Suicide of Lucas: "Everything was not done to save my son", denounces his mother


For the first time since the tragic disappearance of Lucas, Séverine, his mother, spoke this Saturday. A speech full of anger

She is necessarily “sad, empty” but “holds on, for Lucas”.

For the first time since the suicide of her 13-year-old teenager, a victim of harassment, Séverine spoke in the regional daily Vosges Matin.

She explains that for three weeks and this drama, the family has moved away from information and social networks.

She retired from her professional activity to devote herself to her two other children.

But that doesn't take away his anger.

A feeling that will be “always present because it was sudden, incomprehensible”, she breathes, wishing to respect the investigative work in progress.

Despite the passage of time, she concedes “it is still too difficult” to talk about Lucas.

She believes that not everything has been done to protect Lucas, “otherwise he would still be there”.

"A lot of people are wrong," she repeats.

But she claims to have no spirit of revenge.

She repeats having made "two or three reports" of her son's harassment at the school.

As well as having identified possible protagonists.

A white march organized next Sunday

In the columns of our colleagues, the mother of the family also wishes to convey a message of hope, "to say that in life, we do what we want".

"It doesn't matter what other people think.

You have to love yourself”, implores the one who now waits “for the wrongs to be recognized.

Let justice be done ".

She wants to involve harassers in awareness-raising actions, "to show harassers the scope of their actions".

A message of prevention that she already intends to see carried, next Sunday, at 2 p.m., in Épinal, for a white march.

Four 13-year-old minors will be "tried for school harassment resulting in the suicide" of Lucas, of the same age, who ended his life in early January in Golbey (Vosges).

“Following the opening of the preliminary investigation, four minors were taken into custody by the urban security of the Epinal police station,” said the public prosecutor of Epinal, Frédéric Nahon, in a press release.

"During their hearings, the respondents, two girls and two boys aged 13, educated in the same establishment as Lucas, only admitted to having repeatedly made fun of their comrade", continued the magistrate.

Those close to Lucas believe that he committed suicide after being harassed because of his homosexuality.

The prosecutor also announced the opening of an "incidental investigation against X for non-denunciation of ill-treatment of minors".

“Investigations are therefore continuing on this point,” he concluded.

Lucas had written in his diary "a word explaining his desire to end his life", Frédéric Nahon had declared at a press conference on January 13.
