In Tauriac in the Lot, Justine Vayrac was known to everyone in the village which has only 400 inhabitants. Residing in an apartment just above the village town hall, the 20-year-old had made her baby boy, Gabin, her top priority and was totally dedicated to his development and education, putting her professional career between parentheses.

At the center of attention, Gabin was therefore Justine Vayrac’s reason for living, as reported by one of her best friends in Le Parisien “She wanted to focus on Gabin to raise him, spend time with him, explained Vincent , it undermined her not to see him, she was happy because now she could stay with him all the time, it was her ray of sunshine” So much so that in his absence, the blues could turn into drama and close to disaster. A few months ago, in fact, still according to Le Parisien, the young woman had attempted suicide by taking medication, while Gabin was entrusted to his father and had just experienced a sentimental disappointment. An act which, according to his friend Vincent, allowed Justine Vayrac to understand “on whom she could count, it is only justice because we could always rely on her” he added.
Because the young woman was known to be always smiling, welcoming and present for each person who was part of her life. “She was faithful, whether to her family or her friends. She was caring, she took news of everyone when she saw that things were not going well” explains one of her relatives, completed by Vincent. “She knew how to find the words to comfort, even though we hadn’t known each other for a long time. We don’t meet people like her every day.”

Their only horizon is the funeral.”
