Jean Paul Lacombe
Jean Philippe Lacombe
Investigators say Jean Paul Lacombe was abducted by his non-custodial father, Jean Philippe Lacombe, on October 15, 2009 in San Antonio, Texas. Lacombe allegedly gave the court invalid Mexican Documents to overturn the case, and the judge gave him custody. Lacombe was supposed to show back up for a court hearing on Monday, October 19, 2009, but instead he fled with his son.
HISTORY OF CUSTODY:
Cliff Herberg with the Bexar District Attorney’s office in Texas says there are 1,400 pages pertaining to this case that have accumulated over the years in Mexican court. He has not had a chance to review every single page, but Mr. Herberg was able to provide a timeline and background of custody between the parents.
I spoke with Jean Paul’s mother Berenice Diaz early on, and she says her son likes to go by the name Paul only. He loves to play soccer, and he’s a very good student in school. When Paul grows up, he wants to be a pastry chef. Paul speaks English, Spanish and French, and was last seen with his father, Jean Paul Lacombe. Prior to October, it had been nearly two years since Paul last saw his father. Berenice says her son did not want to talk to or see his father, and he told her he would let her know when he was ready.
