The love trail or traffic gone wrong?
Leslie Hoorelbeke, 22, Kévin Trompat, 21, and their dog were last seen at a party with friends near Niort (Deux-Sèvres). A call for witnesses was launched on December 7 after the discovery of the young man’s identity papers. The investigators are interested in the profile of Tom T. whose version of the facts delivered about his evening of November 25 is unclear, certain elements not matching. He is one of the last people to have seen Leslie and Kévin and it is also at his home in Prahecq that the couple was hosted this famous evening. “I’m vomiting blood,” the girl had texted him.
The investigators explore the track of a young man jealous of the relationship of Leslie, with whom he had lived a short idyll, with Kévin, but remains doubtful as to his ability to get rid of the couple and his dog. It was through Tom T. that Leslie Hoorelbeke had known Kévin Trompat. The other track is that of a dispute during their drug deal, to which the two men devoted themselves together. According to the gendarmes, that famous night, Kevin had appointments to sell narcotics.
