Written by News Room on January 13, 2022
French police have arrested a suspect over the unsolved 2012 murder of a British family and a French citizen in the Alps.
Few details were given, but police said a man was in custody in order to do verifications regarding his schedule.
Saad al-Hilli, his wife Iqbal, Mrs al-Hilli’s mother Suhaila al-Allaf and a cyclist, Sylvain Mollier, were found shot dead on a road near Lake Annecy.
The al-Hillis’ two young daughters survived the attack.
French investigators have explored several theories, such as a family feud or Mr al-Hilli’s work as a satellite engineer, as reasons for the attack but the case remains a mystery.
A number of people have been arrested in connection with the deaths but no charges have ever been brought.
