2022-01-12T10:41:10.438Z

Investigators carry out "a check" of the schedule, indicates the prosecutor of the Republic of Annecy.



A person was taken into custody this Wednesday morning by the Chambéry research section as part of the Chevaline (Haute-Savoie) case in which four people, including three members of the same family, were killed by bullets in 2012, without this crime being solved to date.

"This police custody aims to carry out timetable checks," said the Annecy public prosecutor in a press release.

Two little girls direct witnesses

On September 5, 2012, Saad al-Hilli, 50, British father of Iraqi origin, his wife, Iqbal, 47, his stepmother, Suhaila al-Allaf, 74, and Savoy cyclist Sylvain Mollier , 45, had all been shot dead. The couple's two young daughters, 7-year-old Zainab and 4-year-old Zeena, had miraculously escaped the shooter's bullets. Zainab was seriously injured with a butt to the head and left for dead in the parking lot by the killer. Zeena, she had been discovered several hours after the tragedy, hidden under the skirt of her deceased mother, in the vehicle.

Heard in 2012 by the gendarmes, Zeena said she had seen nothing.

For his part, Zainab just mentioned "a bad man", without being able to describe him.

These only direct witnesses of the drama were heard again a few months ago in the hope that memories, flashes, come to the surface, nine years after the events.

And allow to obtain new elements to try to identify the killer.

Hopes disappointed, because these hearings brought nothing more.
