Muslim couple found dead in San Jose home with disturbing message
A Bangladeshi Muslim couple were found shot dead in their San Jose home in California with a chilling note left behind
A Bangladeshi Muslim couple were found shot dead in their San Jose home in California, with a disturbing note left behind reading: “Sorry, my first kill was clumsy,” local media has reported.
The chilling message was found scribbled in black ink on the floor near the bodies of Golam Rabbi, 59, and his wife, 57-year-old Shamima Rabbi, who were found on Sunday, according to local ABC station KGO.
Reports suggest the pair were each shot at least once.
Investigators say the woman might have begged for her life before she was shot dead, NBC Bay Area reported.
A source told the local news station another message was found daubed across the wall reading: “I can’t be like you, telling a lie. I can’t love someone without telling them.”
Police investigators told the San Jose Mercury News they believed the “incident was not a random act of violence and the suspect was someone familiar to the family.”
Officers also said they did not believe the pair were slain because of their Islamic faith.
According to the San Jose Mercury their bodies were found by concerned relatives who went to their home in the afternoon after several failed attempts to contact them. When they arrived they found sliding glass doors to the home unlocked and entered to make the discovery.
The couple had two sons, Haseeb Rabbi, believed to be in his 20s, and 17-year-old Omar. Neither were thought to be home when the incident happened.
Police said they were eager to speak to the elder son – although they said he was not considered a suspect.
In a press release on Monday, police said ‘there is no suspect information at this time.’
According to NBC Bay Area radio station the funeral has been postponed because they can only release the body to their Son Haseeb, who has is missing, and the younger son is considered a minor.
Al Arabiya English tried to contact the San Jose police department for any updates, but no one was available to comment.
