    Money: Motive in French Murders?

    CLAYGATE, ENGLAND - SEPTEMBER 07: A woman hands over flowers and a candle to police at the house of the al-Hilli family on September 7, 2012 in Claygate, England. French police are continuing to investigate a multiple murder after the bodies of three members of a British family were found in a bullet-riddled car in the French resort of Annecy. A 4-year-old girl, who had remained hidden for hours, was also found alive after investigators eventually entered the car. Local news agencies have named the male victim as Saad al-Hilli.

    French police said on Friday that the grisly deaths of a family and a cyclist in the Alps may have been motivated by a money feud between two brothers. On Wednesday, a passing cyclist found the bodies of another cyclist shot in the head and Iraqi-born Saad al-Hilli, his wife, and his mother-in-law. A 7-year-old was found collapsed near the car and a 4-year-old girl was found alive hours later in the car.  Police now say the killings may have been prompted by "a dispute between the two brothers about money," a prosecutor told the AFP, and "the brother will have to be questioned at length."
