Police said robbery was the motivation for the deaths of Gamal Sami, 60 and his wife, Nadia, 48, but her brother, Magdy Amin Girgis – the first person to reach the crime scene – said nothing was taken from the couple’s home. Magdy found his sister still wearing her jewellery after the double killing and nothing was missing.
