Very very strange goings on in France indeed.
However, I can throw some light on modern day police techniques.
In the event of a major incident as a crime scene, modern procedure is for the first officers on the scene to protect the scene. How often today do you see a thriller on TV, (Midsommer etc), with 'plod' trampling all over a murder scene without full sterile protective clothing ? Not on any coppers watch in this day and age !!
My training came within the traffic division and generally involved very serious RTA's, (now called RTC's), where a child might be concealed in a badly wrecked car.
Having said that, I am surprised that even a cursory inspection of this car wasn't carried out as it must have been obvious this incident probably concerned a whole family.
I have just been reading up in todays Mail on what has occured so far.
OK - We know the Mail can occasionally go over the top a little, but there are some very disturbing and obviously true facts concerning this horrific murder, the main ones being it seems to have been a very professionally carried out killing, or 'hit', and also strange that our own 'security-services' were on the scene within hours.
I shall be 'watching-this-space' with great interest.

It's been pretty hot and the adults would have started to decompose very quickly. Surely they should have been put in a cool place as son as reasonably possible to assist the post-mortem? There's more than we have been told
