A Porsche 911 owned by the British businessman suspected of killing his fiancée in an exclusive Paris hotel room has been found in Britain.

An international manhunt was launched for 39-year-old Ian Griffin after the body of Kinga Legg was discovered on Tuesday.

French police believe Mr. Griffin fled the $1,500-a-night Hotel Bristol in a Porsche up to 12 hours before a cleaner found Miss Legg, 36, in the bathroom of the couple's suite.

The room was spattered with blood and furniture was smashed, investigators have said.

It had been believed Mr. Griffin had traveled to Germany or Belgium, but inquiries switched back to Britain after the sports car was located in Warrington, Cheshire, northwestern England, where the businessman still has family.
