A letter left for their family

The two spouses had also taken care to leave a letter to their family before jumping into the void, to clarify that it was a suicide and to avoid the disturbance caused by a gendarmerie investigation.

“They were a couple with no history who had built in a housing estate in the 1980s. They wanted to leave together, what courage they had,” summarizes, affected, Bernard Vallon, mayor of Montélier.
