On Tuesday at a mosque memorial service Kassim Alhimidi appealed to the local community to help find his wife’s killer. The family told reporters yesterday the mysterious killer snuck through the garden and into the back door and murdered Shaima Alawadi in a hate crime,
“The first hit her on her forehead then on her right ear. The third strike was on the back of her head. This was followed by five fast and consecutive strikes on her head and shoulders.”
And, then the killer, according to the family, left a threatening racist note at the scene of the crime.
