Fear as another motorbike killer stalks Paris suburbs

By John Lichfield in Paris

Saturday April 07 2012

Two weeks after the 'scooter assassin' Mohamed Merah died in a shootout with police in Toulouse, another serial killer who rides a motorcycle may be at large in the Paris suburbs.

A 47-year-old woman was shot in the head on Thursday, bringing to four the number of people killed with the same revolver within a six-mile area since November.

In all the cases, the gunman was seen escaping on a motorbike.

Investigators, however, believe the first murder was committed by a different person, using the same gun.

Only the second, third and fourth murders -- in which random victims were shot in the head at close range -- appear to have been carried out by the same man.

The later series of three murders began in February before Merah (23) launched his shooting spree in south-west France, killing seven people in Montauban and Toulouse before he was shot himself by marksmen. The possibility of a copycat killer has been excluded.

Authorities have also ruled out theories that a radical Islamist or other terrorist may be responsible.

More than 100 detectives have been assigned to the case. Every motorbike in the southern suburbs of the French capital is being checked.

A local state prosecutor, Marie-Suzanne Le QuEau, said yesterday that the methods used in the killings were "not identical".

"In the first incident, the victim (a woman of 37) received multiple shots to her body. In the other three, death was due to shots in the head," she said.

In December, a 46-year-old minor criminal confessed to the first of the murders.

He said he shot the victim, named as Nathalie D, in the stairwell of her apartment block at Juvisy-sur-Orge in the Essonne area after she broke off their relationship. He later retracted his confession but remained in custody while investigations continued.

On February 22, a 51-year-old man was shot in the underground car park of the same building with the same gun.

The same gun was used again on March 17 to shoot an 81-year-old man in the hallway of his apartment block in Ris-Orangis, a few kilometres away.

Man this is annoying. Why do all psychopaths have to attention-whore just at the climax of a presidential campaign ?

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

Because it would be better to do it at another point in the four year political cycle?

My post was meant to be utterly cynical and emotionless, so following the same logic, yes, of course. Bloody news are always something terrible and depressing, but if I could choose when - but not if - they happen, I'd rather not have them polluting an electoral campaign.

And it's five years. Wink

No, tho it does look like one of those villains from the cheesy esurance ads a few years ago.

My Google Fu is strong (I right clicked on the image and used Google with information gathered therein), it's a character from the video game Team Fortress 2...which my 10 year old LOVES.  From the TF2 wiki
Quote
The Spy, hailing from an indeterminate region of France, is an aficionado of sharp suits and even sharper knives who relies on stealth and trickery to aid the team. Using his unique array of cloaking watches, he can render himself invisible and even fake his own death, leaving unaware opponents off-guard. His disguise kit lets him take on the form of any class, allowing him to blend in and sneak behind enemy lines before stabbing his unsuspecting 'teammates', quite literally, in the back. In fact, a swift backstab from behind with the Spy's trusty knife will take out any foe, excluding those which are under the effects of an Ubercharge, Scouts under the effect of Bonk!, Spies using the Dead Ringer, or Snipers wearing the razorback, in a single hit.

In addition to being able to assassinate key enemies quickly and efficiently, the Spy is great against the Engineer. Using his Electro Sappers, he can disable Engineer buildings, leaving them open to attack from the Spy's teammates, slowly draining the building's health until it is destroyed or the sapper is knocked off by the Engineer's wrench or the Pyro's homewrecker.
