A woman’s body was recently discovered in a hotel room at Future Inns hotel in Cardiff Bay. The staff found her body there on New Year’s Eve. The death is being treated as a murder by South Wales police. They are waiting for the post-mortem examination to be completed, so a cause of death has yet to be confirmed. Right now they are busy trying to trace the whereabouts of Sammy Almahri, an American from New York City.
The lady killed was 28-year-old Nadine Aburas. Almahri, a 44-year-old, is said to have had an existing friendship with Aburas, so it’s not as if the woman went to the hotel with a stranger. The pair arrived at the hotel together at 9 p.m. on Dec. 30. After the murder, police say that Almahri left the hotel around 3 a.m. By 10:30 a.m., he was on a flight from Heathrow to Bahrain.
Right now, police are unsure of Almahri’s whereabouts. However, they do have a good feeling that he is in Tanzania. Police officer Paul Hurley said that the man should be considered extremely dangerous and resourceful. The hotel was full of guests at the time of the murder because of the holiday. As a result, there were a lot of people in the hotel that saw them together, while others saw them on their own. Anyone who has seen anything is being urged to come forward.
Police in South Wales are working very closely with their American counterparts, the New York City Police Department. They are also working with police in Tanzania to see if they can determine whether or not Almahri arrived there. The biggest problem for police is that Almahri is very resourceful. He has a lot of funds at his disposal, which is likely to help him evade police.
Officers warn anyone who sees Almahri not to approach him. However, any sightings should be reported to the authorities right away. Aburas’ family is receiving support from specially trained officers. However, police don’t think Almahri will go after them. The family released a public statement saying that she was someone who only wanted to help people. She loved everyone that she knew. The loss of her has put a massive hole in the family. She will be missed very much. Family members of Aburas say that she was extremely bubbly and lovely to be around. She was also very talented and unique.
