The manhunt for Monday’s killer of 4 people at a Jewish school in Southern France, who authorities believe may be linked to three other murders in the area within the last 10 days, has eliminated three men wanted by police, as suspects.

The three men, who were discharged from a French paratrooper division in 2008 for taking a photo in front of a Nazi flag, and who were wanted for questioning regarding the murders, have been interrogated and released by French police.

“The three are harmless,” a police source said, according to the French newspaper, Le Point.

Speaking with the French publication, another source said the acts of murder indicated the perpetrator(s) planned the attacks carefully.
