Spotlight on Shaima Alwadi’s Case
As many of you already know, an Iraqi
immigrant to US, Shaima Alawadi, 32, was discovered on March 21 in the kitchen of
her home by her teenage daughter, Fatima Alhimidi, who called 911. She had been
brutally beaten and died at the hospital three days later. The case was attributed
to be a hate crime, due to a note found next to her dead body.
As the facts about the Shaima Alawadi murder case continue to trickle in, it appears
more and more that she was the victim of family violence, rather than a hate crime.
Project Sakinah has launched an initiative using Causes on Facebook calling for full
investigation and follow up on this case. Regardless of the motive and identity
of the murderer, we want justice for Shaima. We hope that you join hands with us
in engaging your friends, community members and leaders in seeking justice for Shaima.
