I don't feel that it is appropriate to discuss the elements of the crime in the other thread. I am very bothered by the nature of this crime and I would like to discuss the investigation. (Mods merge into other thread if you feel this doesn't warrant a separate thread) I can't ignore the statistics regarding suicides in young women and in particular their aversion for violent means. Especially since all reports thus far indicate that Ms. Kazemi was a happy, well functioning young woman. It just seems implausible that she would become suddenly impulsive enough to unload 2 chest shots into Steve, and then finish him and herself with shots to the head. That is a very RARE occurrence. I am hopeful that the investigation has equally considered the emotional volatility and accepted standards of punishment of Middle-Eastern cultures have regarding fidelity of young women. I admit I am very bothered by the internet postings and statements by her boyfriend on July 2nd and 5th as well as a "friend" of her boy-friend that made allusions in July 2nd for her to RIP. Anything is certainly possible, including the murder-suicide, but I am most suspicious of a double-homocide in this scenario. Please post if you are bothered by this as I am. I won't keep posting about it if nobody else is interested in commenting.
