The body of a woman was found on Monday by the gendarmes in a river in the Tarn.
The Castres prosecutor, Chérif Chabbi, confirmed to AFP that it was indeed Cécile Monnot, a woman who had been missing for more than a week after a walk with her son in Payrin-Augmontel, around the town of Mazamet.
An autopsy will be performed in the coming days to determine the cause of death.
His son found dead a week ago
On January 10, it was the body of a 21-year-old young man, his son Florian, who had been fished out near a hydraulic power station on the same Thoré river, downstream from the place of the presumed accidental drowning, reported The Midi Dispatch.
Without news of his wife and son, it was the father who alerted the gendarmes on January 9. The car of the mother, a 51-year-old teacher, was found in an area designed for walkers not far from the river.
