In an article published by the Parisian, Wednesday October 6, 2021, new information was revealed regarding the death of Magali Blandin. As a reminder, the 42-year-old victim was murdered in Montfort-sur-Meu (in Ille-et-Vilaine) on February 11 by her husband Jerome Gaillard. Indicted for murder and attempted murder, the latter then confessed to the murder of the mother of his children on March 18.
Shortly after the death of the mother of the family, Jérôme Gaillard confided during a hearing that he had great difficulty in digesting the situation. “I never imagined raising my children without their mother next to them, nor close to me“, he said during his hearing.”Even if it was close to a corpse and not to their living mother?“, then retorted the examining magistrate. No longer recognizing his wife – now no longer”cold“since their separation at the end of 2020 – the father would then have sought advice from a long-time friend, named Giorgi – known to be “more crook than killer“. Faced with Jérôme Gaillard’s dismay, his friend would have offered him a much more macabre solution: that of”to delete“Magali Blandin in exchange for 20,000 euros. A version today contested by Giorgi’s lawyer, also indicted for murder and attempted murder.
Jérôme Gaillard, let loose by his accomplices
According to the information revealed by the newspaper, the father of the family asked Giorgi to gather some acquaintances capable of killing his wife. Together, the two men would have even imagined the staging of a sexual assault to cover up this homicide. A Machiavellian scenario which did not unfold as planned since after having received the sum, the Georgians contacted by “the crook“simply disappeared from the radar with the money.
Dropped by his accomplices, Jérôme Gaillard then took charge of the assassination himself by hitting Magali Blandin to death with a baseball bat. The mother’s body was found in March 2021, in a forest in Boisgervilly, located 3 kilometers from the family farm.
