- PARIS CITY MAYOR MURDERED? — MAYOR BRUNO JULLIARD FOUND DEAD IN HOME BY POLICE
The 45 year old Paris city Mayor Bruno Julliard (SOC) has reportedly been found deceased in his mayoral residence, the Hôtel de Ville by city authorities.
PARIS — OCTOBER 2026
- Just 3 weeks ago Mayor Bruno Julliard had announced his bid to run in the quarterly parliamentary elections for the National Assembly. This morning at around 10:30 AM, Julliard's private secretary, Philippe Desmazes discovered the mayor unconscious and dialed the emergency services hotline 112 immediately. When medical personnel arrived at the scene, they pronounced the 45 year old Bruno Julliard deceased. Homicide detectives have taken Julliard's body in for an official autopsy as crime scene evidence hints at possible foul play.
Julliard had already accompanied previous Socialist Party candidates on campaign tours in recent years and was a rising voice of the Socialist Party with hopes of one day returning the party to power in both houses of Parliament. Mayor Julliard's wife was reportedly "out of town" when his death occurred. Paris Deputy Mayor and now acting Mayor of Paris Emmanuel Grégoire made a press statement earlier this morning stating: "We are deeply saddened by the tragic and sudden death of our beloved city mayor, Bruno Julliard. We must put our trust in city authorities whom will get down to the bottom of this tragedy and our hearts and prayers go out to Bruno Julliard's wife and First Lady of Paris, Madame Paul-Valère Julliard."
President Emmanuel Macron had the following remarks on the issue:
- ”I share deeply in sadness which has stricken our wonderful capital city. Mayor Julliard was a great leader and I was honoured to have worked with him. While we hope that Paris authorities are able to get down to the bottom the mayor's untimely death, our hearts, minds, and prayers are with the family of Bruno Julliard.”
While many already speculate that Mayor Julliard was murdered, we cannot confirm nor deny anything at this time. The Paris City Police Department remains vigilant as homicide detectives continue to search the scene for any remaining evidence. No one has been brought forward for questioning either, as Madame Julliard's statement about being "out of town" has an alibi with video surveillance showing her in the downtown area of Amiens both this morning and yesterday with her mother. However the mayor's private secretary Philippe Desmazes has not yet been cleared.
