She was the only one who didn't get shot, but she suffered the most.

A 4-year-old girl paralyzed by fear after killers executed her mother, father and grandmother was trapped beneath their dead bodies for eight hours inside a cramped car.

The horrific bloodbath near idyllic Lake Annecy in the French Alps also left the girl's 7-year-old sister in critical condition — shot and beaten, with a cracked skull. A passing French cyclist, apparently unlucky enough to stumble across the carnage, also was shot dead.

Mystery surrounds the crime scene, where a BMW was filled with corpses. The victims were murdered execution-style with bullets to the forehead near the campground where they were vacationing.

The murder weapon is suspected to be an automatic pistol, and 15 bullet cartridges littered the area surrounding the car. Police do not have a motive or suspects.

Baghdad native Saad al-Hilli, 50, was in the driver's seat. He had lived with his wife, Ikbal al-Hilli, and their family in South London. He was a freelance computer-aided design engineer who helped design the Airbus A380 airplane, reported The Standard.
