Latino Man Kills Muslim Teen Nabra Hassanen in Virginia


The father of the murdered Muslim teenager Nabra Hassanen has said he believes his daughter was "100%" killed because of her faith, despite police ruling that it was not a hate crime.

Fairfax County Police Department spokesperson Tawny Wright suggested there was not now evidence the attack was a hate crime.

Some of the teenagers were in the road and Martinez allegedly began arguing with the boy on a bicycle as he was driving in his auto, Parker told a news conference.

After Torres drove his vehicle at the group, he chased after them with a baseball bat and struck Hassanen, police said, before taking her away in his auto.

Officials recovered Hassanen's body from a pond in Loudoun County on Sunday evening.

According to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner of Northern Virginia, Nabra died from blunt-force trauma to the head and neck.

Feeling threatened, the group of girls ran towards the safety of the mosque, the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS), but realized they had left Hassanen behind. "Our investigation at this point does not indicate the victim was targeted because of her race or religion".

Women's Initiative for Self-Empowerment CEO Rana Abdelhamid said by telephone that her group is partnering with groups in cities around the nation to hold vigils Tuesday for 17-year-old Nabra Hassanen and stand in solidarity with her family.

Mahmood said her heart is hurting, but that won't stop her from joining her friends and family at the mosque during Ramadan.

He was assigned a public defender.

The girl's father says he doesn't understand how this could have happened and that his daughter was a friend to everyone.

Hassanen's mother, Sawsan Gazzar, told the Washington Post that her daughter's death "had to do with the way she was dressed and the fact that she's Muslim".

The man allegedly got out of the auto and assaulted the 17-year-old girl as her friends ran to the mosque, where they called police, Wright said.

Now, Mohmoud said he struggles to find an answer when his youngest daughter, 3-year-old Amarose, asked where her big sister is.

The Washington Post reported Monday from Torres's court arraignment that the suspect works in construction.

The authorities had not ruled out hate as a motivation for the attack on Sunday.
