On October 8, 2022, Serge and Dominique Vacant still remember that "normal evening" when their lives were turned upside down. Around 23:30 p.m., Maxime, their youngest son, came out.

The family lives in Quatre Chemins, a district of Maizières-lès-Metz (Moselle), located 1.5 km from the Cité des Écart and its square, where the young people meet opposite the Saint-Joseph chapel.
