Fellow residents of the small affluent community of Claygate in Surrey have expressed their disbelief at the murders of the al-Halli family.
Neighbours described them as a 'loving and close-knit family'.
Saad al-Hilli was found dead in a car near Lake Annecy on Wednesday night, along with his wife and mother-in-law.
The couple's two children, seven-year-old Zainab, who is believed to have been seriously injured in the shooting, and Zeena, aged four, are in hospital.
