A new episode in an endless story. A man has admitted to making malicious phone calls to the home of Marcel and Jacqueline Jacob, Grégory Villemin's grand-uncle and grand aunt, in Granges-sur-Vologne (Vosges), the prosecutor's office reported on Saturday.
Aged about sixty years and living in the Côtes-d'Armor, the individual was auditioned Friday afternoon. The computer equipment of the sexagenarian has been seized,
according to Vosges Matin, but the reasons for his calls were not specified. The husband Jacob, both in their seventies, had complained after receiving "two calls, August 11 and 15, and messages left anonymously on their answering machine," said Nicolas Heitz, public prosecutor in Epinal.
"We'll see you"
In a recording broadcast Friday on the site of Vosges Matin, we can hear a voice declare: "Marcel Jacob, it is you who informed the raven, your brother Rene Jacob, with your binoculars, who watched all that was happening at your sister Monique Jacob and Albert Villemin (Grégory's grandparents)? Is it you who informed the raven? We'll see you. Hello. "It is the technical exploitation carried out by the gendarmerie which made it possible to identify the suspect.
This new element comes on top of an endless judicial saga surrounding the death of four-year-old Grégory Villemin, who was found drowned, hand and foot bound, in Vologne on 16 October 1984. After accusing his wife of brother, Bernard Laroche, killed by Jean-Marie Villemin in 1985, Murielle Bolle, then aged 15, had retracted.
Indictments set aside
Marcel and Jacqueline Jacob, they had been indicted with Murielle Bolle in June 2017 for "kidnapping and kidnapping followed by death". But their indictments had been quashed for procedural reasons in May 2018.
