Robert Spencer picks up on an important unreported detail from the horrifying story of the Christmas morning murders-suicide which left six relatives dead. The father and murderer, it seems, disliked that his daughter was dating a non-Muslim [Spencer’s emphasis]:
Neighbors said the family was Muslim but had always hung Christmas lights on their home — except this year.
Terri Baum, who lives three homes down from Yazdanpanah, said she had seen him around the neighborhood in the last couple of weeks.
“They were pretty quiet, but kind, very kind,” Baum said. “They were sweet, good parents, and they loved their kids very much.”
Baum’s daughter, Allison, attended Colleyville Heritage High School with Nona, where the girls were part of an academic team focused on developing business leaders. They graduated together in May.
“Allison would take her to school from here, and then when they moved out she would pick her up from the apartments,” Baum said. “It’s unbelievable because of the people we knew them to be, and their children were good kids, very focused.”
Baum said she was horrified at the possibility the killings had been a murder-suicide.
“All I want to say is, it is so unbelievably shocking because they loved their kids,” Baum said.
“She couldn’t date at all until she was a certain age, but when he was going to let her date she couldn’t date anyone outside of their race or religion,” Reed said.
Yes, loved them to death.
But a more ominous portrait emerged of Yazdanpanah in interviews with some of his daughter’s other classmates.“She would come to school crying and telling us her dad was crazy,” said Lacie Reed, 18. “He wouldn’t let her wear certain things. He was always taking her phone away, checking her call history and checking her text messages.”
Friends said Nona’s father had installed cameras all around the home so he could watch the family’s comings and goings. Others said he nailed her bedroom window shut so she could not sneak out at night and see her boyfriend.
So far, the only MSM outlet to report it has been the Dallas Morning News. It’s an important thing to note considering that its’ occurrences are growing in frequency — in America.
