Just heard on the news that there has been another person 'taken into custody'
Apparently a man who shared his presumed arms dealing activities.

Still the plot thickens. He was recognized by his face, not the unusual helmet in the identikit picture.
- The helmet has not been found in his house.
- His DNA does not fit with either of the unknown ones found at the crime scene.
- And he has a big scooter not a motor bike.

Anyway he will be accused of arms dealing and risks 10 years in prison for that. Maybe the killer was one of his customers.

an important aspect is that the interest in the matter by the public in France, Germany and Switzerland is practically ZERO. So that Police Municipale and the Gendarmerie Nationale and the Police Judiciaire are under no pressure

I know that coincidences do happen but this seems rather odd not to be connected. I think it points to the family being the target. Lack of evidence may lead to it remaining unsolved

So the French police have arrested someone who failed to murder his family 10 years ago?
Someone who the French police failed to connect to a similar killing 30 years ago!
Sounds like a hot tip!


As I posted at the start of this thread I still think Peter Sellers would have done a better job of this investigation!

"Hecht is now living in Vosges, France, two hours from Annency (sic)."

Two hours? Daily Mail is maintaining its usual high standard of journalism.

Interesting. Apparently, "just" a local nutter. He's also accused of several other murders, including a 7 year old girl. If true then al-Halili's brother's protestations of innocence were true. Amazing.

Re: Suspect arrested in french Alps murder case

This is again back in the news with French investigators interviewing the surviving daughters. And still looking for the Swiss weapon. Hope there's some closure.

And another body found in the area.
