Annecy Shootings

"no working theory"

On the afternoon of September 5, 2012, a British cyclist came across a scene of chaos and carnage on a mountainside road in the French region of Chevaline, Haute-Savoie, near the southern end of Lake Annecy. There in a lay-by he found the bodies of the Iraqi-born British al-Hilli family inside their BMW, three of whom had been shot dead, while the only survivors of the massacre were the tourists two young children. Close to the vehicle was the body of a fourth victim, French cyclist Sylvain Mollier. It was the beginning of a bewildering case of murder that would lead investigators to consider several conclusions, none of which seemed to solve what was to remain a complex and frustrating mystery. Ultimately, investigators believe the murder was a professional contract killing, with potential links to other crimes committed for unknown reasons, possibly by an organized crime group or a foreign security service.
