Alexandria, VA Rape Suspect Freed Due to COVID – Kills Accuser: Police
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) – Police in Virginia say that a rape suspect who was released from jail in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic went on to kill the woman who had accused him.
The Washington Post reports that Ibrahim E. Bouaichi was tracked down by authorities on Wednesday. But he shot himself and was in grave condition on Thursday.
When the pandemic hit, Bouaichi’s lawyers argued that he should be freed while awaiting trial because the virus endangered both inmates and their attorneys.
Police began investigating Gonzalez’s murder on June 29 at 6:20 a.m. when they responded to a shots fired complaint on South Greenmount Drive and found her dead.
Another fail for gun regulations.
