More than two months have passed since the disappearance of Kévin Trompat and Leslie Hoorelbeke, but the relatives of the latter do not give up. Since November 26, 2022, the day Leslie, 22, disappeared with her boyfriend Kévin in the town of Prahecq (Deux-Sèvres), Patrick Hoorelbeke and his partner, Emilie Cardré, have been making every effort to find their traces. . They even go so far as to conduct their own investigation in parallel with that of the police, listing in a notebook all the information likely to advance the investigations. “The words fly away but the writings remain”, confided recently Patrick Hoorelbeke in the program Sept à Huit.

But the writings are no longer enough for Leslie’s father and mother-in-law. In an interview with Sud-Ouest, Patrick and Émilie make a call to people with information who, for one reason or another, are afraid to come forward. “To those who know something, we want to tell them not to be afraid, declares the couple, even making an unexpected proposal: We will buffer with the police if necessary. We must speak.

Kevin involved in drug dealing?

If Patrick Hoorelbeke and Emilie Cardré suspect certain witnesses of remaining in the shadows, it is because Kévin Trompat, Leslie’s boyfriend, is suspected of having been involved in drug trafficking. On the evening of November 25, while he and Leslie were spending the evening at a friend of Prahecq’s, Kevin had around €10,000 in cash on him. He had then claimed to his mother-in-law wanting to buy a second-hand car (although he did not have a license), but several witnesses certify that Kevin was dealing narcotics. In addition, according to Liberation, two vials containing liquid drugs were found in the couple’s belongings after their disappearance. So, were Kevin and Leslie kidnapped on the background of drug trafficking? For now, the mystery remains.
