It seemed like a few months ago there were all these crazy crimes that were happening all over the world, and in the past few weeks there has been some resolution to at least two if them.
Do you remember the Lebanese singer Suzanne Tamim who was killed in her apartment in Dubai because she was leaving her lover? Well, an Egyptian court sentenced her former boyfriend, Hisham Talaat Moustafa and retired police officer Mohsen al-Sukkari to death by hanging. Her boyfriend ordered the killing while the police officer is the one who actually carried it out.
Her family said, "We have full faith in the Egyptian judicial system and we are awaiting the final ruling. The family is all gathered and we are following this closely."
The final ruling to which the family refers is the fact that the sentence must be approved by the mufti, which is an interpreter of Islamic law. This was such a tragedy.
The other case which has some resolution involves the 17 year old girl who ran away to Brazil to be with her boyfriend and then he killed her, cut her up, and put her in a suitcase. He did this because she was going to tell his parents about his drug use. For his part, he revealed that he only wanted to be with Cara Maria Burke so he could get permission to live in the UK. He was sentenced to 21 years in prison for her death. After killing her while high on crack, he sent a text message to a friend saying, 'the b**** is in the bag', accompanied by a smiley face.
