On September 5, 2012, Saad al-Hilli, a British engineer of Iraqi origin, his wife and his mother-in-law were shot several times in their car, on a small forest road near Chevaline (Haute-Savoie). A cyclist, probable collateral victim, is also killed. One of the couple’s little girls is seriously injured, the second, hidden under her mother’s legs, miraculously survives unharmed.
The investigation turned in turn to a family dispute with Saad’s brother, to a spy case and to a mysterious biker. But these tracks were abandoned one by one.
