Paris - (Merde Alors! Mess): A spectacular £30 million cocaine raid on a Dover-bound British Transit Van...
And the inexplicable disappearance of UK businessman Ian Griffin following the discovery of Polish blonde Kinga Legg's naked corpse in the famous Hotel Bristol Palin.
Are they perchance related?
That's the whodunnit poser needling the French Gendarmerie today after Interpol confirmed the 40 year-old London male had fled the Rue Faubourg Saint-Honoré murder scene.
Detectives pieceing together the nefarious details described Ms Legg as a Warsaw 'import-export company director', cop-speak for carck dealer.
The fugitive Griffin was last seen fleeing 'towards the French Riviera' French Connection-style, possibly in a black Porsche 9/11. Or a lilac Lamborghini. Or maybe even a blue Bentley Azure.
The busted Transit coke Brits are in custody awaiting a grilling.
