Police release e-fit in Al-Hilli murder hunt
A drawing of a man seen riding near where a Claygate family were murdered in the French Alps has been released by police.
Investigators from the French Gendarmerie have released the artist’s impression 14 months after Oaken Lane resident Saad Al-Hilli, 50, his wife Iqbal, 47, and her mother, Suhaila al-Allaf, 74, were shot dead in their BMW while on holiday in Annecy.
Officers are appealing for members of the public to help identifying a motorcyclist seen near where the family and French cyclist Sylvain Mollier were killed on September 5, 2012.
The man pictured was seen riding along La Combe d’Ire road in Doussard, Chevaline between 3.15pm and 3.40pm on the day of the murders.
He was described as wearing a helmet which was black or dark coloured and has a lateral opening at chin level, which matches the description of a GPA make, model ISR.
Shortly after the motorcyclist was spotted the four bodies were found in a parking area on a remote forest road.
The two Al-Hilli children, Zainab, then 7, and Zeena, then 4, survived the brutal attack.
Investigators from the French Gendarmerie Section de Recherches in Chambéry are appealing for who anyone who might recognise the man in the picture to come forward.
Anyone with information should contact Surrey Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
