Iraqi-American woman bludgeoned to death in her California home is buried in native Iraq
By Associated Press, Published: March 31

NAJAF, Iraq — An Iraqi-American woman found bludgeoned to death in her California home last week with a threatening note left beside her body was buried in her native Iraq on Saturday. Family members wept uncontrollably by her graveside and her father asked God to exact revenge on those responsible for her death.

A relative called on Iraq’s government to take quick action to press U.S. authorities to reveal the results of the investigation into the killing of Iraqi-born Shaima Alawadi.

A 32-year-old mother of five, Alawadi was found unconscious by her daughter Fatima, 17, in the dining room of the family’s home in El Cajon, one of America’s largest enclaves of Iraqi immigrants. Three days later, she was taken off life support.

No suspects have been identified or apprehended so far. California police have said the note had led investigators to regard the killing as a possible hate crime. Her daughter told a local TV station it read, “Go back to your country, you terrorist.”

This sounds like an honor killing framed as a hate crime.

She was blugeoned to death in her home, and not raped? And called a terrorist? I think of Muslim women as victims of their culture, not terrorists.

Something just doesn't add up to this story.

The police are now looking at the husband and daughter.

Apparently, the victim had been planning on leaving her husband, and in a separate matter, I take it, the daughter had jumped out of a moving car her mother was driving because of the daughter's objection to being married off to a cousin and having just been picked up by the police for having sex with a man in a car.

A man in his 20s was apparently seen around the house at the time of the murder.
