Just read that the dead cyclist had some nuclear links and may have been on paternity leave from a nuclear company w/ slightly tenuous looking Iranian links...

Heres my theory- both Nuke scientists- lured to meet a "contact" in isolated location all adults killed but girls spared- 4 yr old left alone as she wouldn't remember anything- 8 yr old beaten just bad enough to go get knocked out/ lose memory but not die. Pro hit IMO.

Perhaps MI5 thought that MI6 were looking after him?

How do you know when you've beaten someone enough to erase their memories...is there a required number of blows or something? If two people are going to a clandestine meeting with a contact, one isn't going to bring 2 children, their wife and the kids grandmother and the other isn't going to cycle to the meeting. Nice idea but not grounded in reality.

If there's any truth in the stories that he worked on nuclear program in Iraq and recently traveled to Iran I think I'm with the conspiracy crowd on this one. All shots to the forehead seems like assassination.

He's Dr Quirky, and I'm assuming that he's a medic and not a doctor of music or something, so he should know.

Well I for one think it's about time that med. school has started teaching our young doctors to beat the memories out of people's heads

They'll never do that, or the patients will forget to pay em.

Surely I'm not the only person that heard about the 4 year old and immediately thought "Dexter"?

AH response: Fupping 'Merica again!!!...oh wait.



Real response: Jesus, that's awful. Hope the kid blocks it out of her memory in later years.

Just reading the French news this morning, no doubting it was a super professional hit. No bullets hit the body of the car, all cartridges found at the scene match the number of bullet wounds in the three in the car, the cyclist and the seven year old (who was shot in the shoulder).

In a way that is intriguing to the investigation the French are not very welcoming to Arab's (mainly due to Meghrabin influx) but also are historically not very supportive if Israel. I say this because I believe it was a Mossad hit. They have a blasé attitude about how they conduct their affairs, knowing full well the protection they are offered by certain states.

If it was MI-6 they would hardly have waited to come to France to organize a hit. (David Kelly, Dr Holmes etc)

As a human it is act of savagery though, to think that some guy/girl will receive a large bonus payment for wiping out a family and a passer-by is stomach churning.

The first word that came to my mind when I read this story was "Mossad".

The French are also hugely into their firearms and have been known to be a tad xenophobic. Take rural area ( the Alps) and as likley or not you get a crazy lone gunman that has a thing about non locals....

Would a professional hit man kill the family as well?

Sounds too shabby for a pro, but to clinical for a lunatic.

I'm going for revenge/warning attack.
