Murder in The Alps

Murder in the Alps

Almost 10 years after the brutal murder of a British family at a beauty spot in the French Alps, the case remains unsolved. Former investigators and the brother of one of the victims – once the prime suspect in the case – tell the story of the mysterious shooting and the sprawling police investigation that continues to this day. The second episode sees murder victim Saad Al-Hilli’s brother Zaid arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and follows leads that take investigators to Switzerland, Iraq and Louisiana, USA. Detectives hunt for a motorcyclist with a distinctive helmet spotted near the crime scene; the FBI help to uncover a secret marriage; journalists dig into Al-Hilli family connections with the Iraqi regime; and police find a Swiss bank account containing almost a million euros.
