Four days after the murder of Justine Vayrac, Lucas L. (21) was indicted for the murder of the 20-year-old young woman, whose body was found near her home. Interviewed by the ParisianVincent, one of Justine’s friends, remembers: “Justine was an infectious joie de vivre. It was enough to see her for five minutes for her to cheer you up!“
However, the pretty Justine had also experienced difficult times a short time ago, as revealed by the journalists of the Parisian. “A few months ago, she had attempted suicide by taking drugs. A big blow of blues linked to a sentimental disappointment, combined with the fact of seeing Gabin less, then entrusted to his dad.“A sadness that the young mother of a little boy of 2 and a half years old had finally managed to overcome thanks to her loved ones.
“She said she now knew who she could count on. It’s only fair, because we could always lean on her“, adds his friend Vincent, who specifies that his friend had again become a young woman full of life, who “spent his time laughing” and that “loved to dance“.

She would then have crossed paths with the suspect, Lucas L. an “acquaintance” according to a friend of the young woman who left her with him then went back to the nightclub.
The indicted man, who was remanded in custody, confessed at the end of his custody “killing the victim when they were both at his home and had just had consensual sex. The 21-year-old farmer also told investigators that he had “punched, which would have caused the death“of the young woman and having used a”agricultural machine” for “bury the body” in forest.
“A judicial investigation was opened on the counts of rape, kidnapping without voluntary release before the 7th day and murder preceded, accompanied or followed by another crime. The penalty is life imprisonment.“said Limoges prosecutor Baptiste Porcher during a press briefing.
Lucas L. remains presumed innocent until the final closure of the case.
