Abbad Thami was a Moroccan worker who killed six people in Berre-l'Étang and Mallemort, France during the night from October 11 to October 12, 1982.

That night Thami drove to the home of a 20-year-old Moroccan woman in Berre-l'Étang, who had rejected his advances, and first killed a friend of her family, when he tried to wrest his 5.6mm pistol from him. Afterwards he shot the woman, the woman's two sisters, who were aged 14 and 16 years, as well as her mother, and then drove 30km to Mallemort, where he killed the woman's brother. In the morning of October 12 police eventually found Thami in his car, whereupon he shot himself in the head. The 31-year-old died soon thereafter.[1][2][3]
