Additionally, a professional killer would not have entered the couple's car and risk leaving fibres, fingerprints or other forensic evidence behind. Neither would a professional killer shot someone inside the car and drive off in the car, thus risking being caught in a car with blood and brains all over the passenger seat.

Quite right, But could it not be that the killer shot Gregsten through the window of the car , and left the scene with a third person left to take care of the following mayhem. This would be in keeping with Superintendend Mathews belief that more than 2 people possibly 3 people were involved in all of this.

I think this is very unlikely. A professional killer would have ordered the couple out of the car, carried out the killing and left the scene swiftly. They certainly would not have taken the couple on a pointless meander through the night streets or raped one of the victims.

Having said that, I don't think a former house-burglar, out to score his first practice 'stick-up' would have taken the couple on that very risky jaunt either. Surely they would also have sought a swift exit? Is it possible that the attacker needed the car as a get-away vehicle with a view to holding up a remote garage, where a nice cash return on a few minutes work would most likely be the result? Again, in that case, I would have expected the 'robber' to have ordered the couple out of the car and drive off with it - except it seems that our man was not a very good driver?
