Lake Annecy Murders: A Former French Legionnaire Commits Suicide

THE Lake Annecy Murders: A 50-year-old former French Legionnaire questioned over the murders of Sylvain Mollier and three members of the al-Hilli family from Surrey is dead. Police says he left a note.

Eric Maillaud, the Annecy prosecutor, says the man “left a note of six or seven pages in which he said he was disturbed by the questioning. He felt accused… It does not make this the main or sole reason for his action.”

Mr Maillaud says the man was not considered to have been a suspect.

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.”
