BREAKING NEWS : Ex-World Cup skier Corinne Rey-Bellet shot dead by her husband !

Former Swiss ski star Rey-Bellet killed by her husband

5/1/2006 10:47:04 AM

ST. MAURICE, Switzerland (AP) - Former Swiss skiing star Corinne Rey-Bellet and her brother Alain were fatally shot by Rey-Bellet's husband in their parents' home, police said Monday.

Police are searching for Rey-Bellet's husband Gerold Stadler in connection with the two slayings, said Philippe Medico, examining magistrate in the Swiss region of Valais.

Stadler, a 34-year-old private banker, appears to have fled the scene, but his car was found in a nearby village, Medico told reporters in St. Maurice.

Medico said Rey-Bellet and Stadler had separated late last month.

Rey-Bellet's mother was hospitalized with serious injuries from the attack late Sunday in the Swiss mountain resort of Les Crosets, local police said.

Police said the attacker(her husband) entered the house and fired five shots. He had already gone when police arrived and eluded an immediate search.

Despite her injuries, Rey-Bellet's mother was able to call authorities.

The couple's two-year-old son - who was also in the house but was unhurt on a higher floor - is safe, police spokesman Renato Kalbermatten said.

Rey-Bellet, 33, lived with her husband and son in Abtwil, in northeast Switzerland.



She won a silver medal in downhill at the 2003 world championships at St. Moritz, Switzerland. She retired shortly afterward because of a series of injuries to her right knee during top-level competition.

The skier had her first podium finish in 1992, when she placed third in the World Cup final in Crans Montana.

In 1999, she won the downhill and Super-G at the World Cup in St. Anton, Austria.

By Monday afternoon, fans had left hundreds of messages of condolence on Rey-Bellet's website.

''We're shaken by the tragedy. We send our condolences to the family members and express our deep sorrow,'' the website's administrators said.

Precious and fragile things
Need special handling...

I pray you learn to trust
Have faith in both of us
And keep room in your hearts for two

They can't find the husband. Maybe another domestic violence act

Her mother, who was severely injured, died today. Son and father are alive.
