Police in Albuquerque, N.M., are investigating the recent killings of three Muslim men in the city as a possible series of connected murders, with authorities including the FBI promising a significant investigation into the matter.
Officials said that the murders in the past week of 27-year-old Muhammed Afzaal Hussain and 41-year-old Aftab Hussein could be linked to that of Mohammad Ahmadi, who was murdered in November.
“While we are still sifting through all the evidence to look for more connections, it is deeply troubling that these three men were Muslim and of similar descent,” Criminal Investigations Division Deputy Commander Kyle Hartsock told media.
Albuquerque Police Chief Harold Medina, meanwhile, vowed to throw the police department’s weight behind the investigation.
“I want to reassure our friends in the Muslim community that we are making these crimes a top priority for the department,” he said during a press conference.
The FBI is also taking part in the investigation.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
