France Shooting: Bodies Found In UK Car

Quote:
Four people have been found shot dead in peaceful surroundings near a lake in south-east France, local officials say.

The bodies of two women and a man were found in a British-registered BMW car near Lake Annecy, in the Haute Savoie region, they said.

A cyclist was reportedly found dead nearby. A critically injured girl under 10 years old was also found.

The nationality of the victims has not yet been established.

Lake Annecy is a popular tourist destination known for its swimming and water sports.

The cyclist who came across the grisly scene at about 16:00 local time (14:00 GMT) is said to be in shock.

The UK Foreign Office said it was aware of reports of the shootings and was looking into them urgently.

The area has now been sealed off by some 60 police, who have started a criminal investigation into what they are calling a multiple murder.

The young girl was reported to have died of her injuries but Agence France-Presse later said the prosecutor who had announced her death, Eric Maillaud, had issued a correction.

He now says she is in a critical condition in intensive care in Grenoble after being ferried by helicopter from the scene.

"We haven't yet been able to establish the nationality of the victims," said Mr Maillaud, who did not have access to the car pending forensic examinations.

"For the moment we have not been able to establish a theory about what has happened here."

The car park where the bodies were found is in a quiet, forested area in the foothills of the Alps.

The two women's bodies were in the back of the car, while the man's was in the front.

A large number of spent cartridges are said to have been found on the ground around the BMW.

The BBC's Chris Bockman in the southern French city of Toulouse says the area is popular with Britons for its hiking opportunities and, in winter, cross-country skiing.

Re: France Shooting: Bodies Found In UK Car

British Saad al-Hilli (original Iraq) is the dad and his wife and grandmother were shot.
French cyclist prolly witnessed the scene and was killed too.
Their 4 yo daughter hid herself under her mum's corpse and was found alive 8 hours later because in these cases the police may not enter the crime scene and has to wait for a special team. (awfully long wait though)

He's denying it:

Quote:
The brother of Alps shooting victim Saad al-Hilli has told UK police there was no dispute over "financial matters", French prosecutors have said.

Prosecutor Eric Maillaud said French officers would interview Mr al-Hilli's brother in the UK as a "witness".

He formally confirmed Mr al-Hilli and his wife were among four people fatally shot near Lake Annecy on Wednesday.

And he said the British cyclist who reported the crime had seen a dark four-wheel drive vehicle heading away.

The prosecutor said four-year-old Zeena al-Hilli - who spent eight hours hiding in the car with the bodies before being found by officers - had told French police about the shooting that killed her mother and father during their holiday in the Alps.

Speaking to a press conference on Friday, Mr Maillaud said the brother of Iraqi-born businessman Mr al-Hilli, 50, went to the police after he heard media reports of the deaths - first to ask about al-Hilli's condition, and then, on Friday, to deny reports of a dispute with his brother.

But he said Mr al-Hilli's brother had not yet been formally questioned and police were still gathering information about Mr al-Hilli - a British national who had been living in Surrey.

Earlier on Friday, French police said a family dispute about money was one of their lines of inquiry into the killings, based on credible information coming from the British police.

'Fury and terror'
During the press conference, Mr Maillaud also confirmed that each of the victims had at least one bullet in the head, and about 25 shots were fired - more than originally thought. He refused to confirm the type or number of weapons.

He said that four-year-old Zeena al-Hilli had identified her family, and described the "fury" and "terror" of the attack to French police.

The child said she was between her mother and the older woman in the car - who has not yet been officially named - and hid under her mother's skirts when the shootings began.

"This is a little girl who must be protected," said Mr Maillaud. "She should go back to the UK soon so that she can try and forget this nightmare."

Her older sister Zainab, aged seven, is in a medically-induced coma in Grenoble University Hospital after being shot once and suffering head injuries.

She was found and rescued by a British RAF veteran, who discovered the murder scene and alerted the authorities.

Mr Maillaud said investigators will talk to her through interpreters as soon as possible, with British representatives present.

Mr al-Hilli's daughters are believed to be the only witnesses to Wednesday's killings, and both are under police protection.

Their mother Iqbal and a woman thought to be Mr al-Hilli's 74-year-old mother-in-law, a Swedish national, were killed during the attack.

The fourth victim, a cyclist whose body was found near the car after apparently stumbling across the attack, has been named as 45-year-old Sylvain Mollier.

Meanwhile, a French investigator has landed at Heathrow to begin work with British authorities, which is now officially "a Franco-British investigation", according to Mr Maillaud.

Two more French detectives were due to arrive on Friday evening, and one more on Saturday, he said.

Investigators are looking into reports of a green or dark coloured four-wheel drive vehicle in connection with the shootings. Mr Maillaud added that such vehicles were common during the tourist season in a mountainous region.

And post-mortem examinations have been carried out on the four victims' bodies on Friday.

'Terrible news'
The al-Hilli family had arrived on holiday at the nearby Le Solitaire du Lac campsite in Saint-Jorioz on Monday and had been due to leave at the end of the week.

Matt Perkins, of Surrey Satellite Technology (SSTL) where Mr al-Hilli worked, issued a statement following official confirmation of his death.

"I am deeply shocked and saddened to confirm that one of SSTL's long-term contractors, Saad Al-Hilli, has been formally identified as one of the victims of the shootings which occurred in the French Alps," he said.

"Saad worked at SSTL as a mechanical design engineer from November 2010.

"Saad's colleagues will remember him as an experienced and committed engineer who worked as part of a tightly knit team. He was a personal friend to many of our staff here."

Mr Perkins added Mr al-Hilli would "be greatly missed and our thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this very difficult and traumatic time".

A spokesman for Surrey Police said the force was helping French authorities to carry out a "complex" investigation.

"As part of this, the force is facilitating a visit by French investigators to conduct inquiries in the UK.

"We are unable to confirm any details around the investigation and it is inappropriate to make any further comment at this time."

Re: France Shooting: Bodies Found In UK Car

It looks like the car was originally facing into the layby on the right {seen from above}. he reversed in an arc into the bank where the car was found - engine running. Either they were run off into the layby, or possibly the girl who gets carsick had to get out. One weapon used. 7.65 auto.
Like to find out more about the cyclist though, could it be he was the target and the family happened by?????
