Lake Annecy Murders: police say it was random act of a madman
LAKE Annecy Murders: When Saad al-Hilli, Iqbal al-Hilli, Suhaila Al-Allaf, and cyclist Sylvain Mollier were murdered in the French Alps, we wondered why.
(Not: Still no photo of Sylvain Mollier. The Daily Mail asked “Does French cyclist hold the key to Alps massacre? ” It then published an “exclusive” photo of the wrong man.)
Eric Maillaud, the French prosecutor (see above), says he’s found no motive for the murders. It might have been a motiveless attack, the random act of a nutter. Says the expert:
“Without doubt we are looking for someone who has killed before, someone who puts no value on human life. We are not sure whether that means it’s a professional hit but if it was done on a contract it was very badly done.”
Was it? Four dead. No leads.
“We are looking for unbalanced people — capable of extreme violence. People who have access to weapons: hunters, collectors, shooting club members, some of whom could have had psychiatric problems.”
You see. It wasn’t professional hit. It was the act of a madman.
“We are searching a huge area stretching into Switzerland and Italy, and that includes a large number of people.”
Good job it wasn’t a professional hit or else the police would be clueless…
