Prior to her passing, ZOHREH Sadeghi, a successful podcaster and software engineer, resided with her husband in Washington.
She allegedly died at the hands of a stalker she met through a social media app.
Who was podcaster Zohreh Sadeghi?
Zohreh Sadeghi, a software engineer and podcaster, was 33 years old.
At Promontory MortgagePath, she was employed.
Also a self-described “techie,” Zohreh.
From 2011 until her passing in 2023, she was wed to Mohammed Naseri.
She and her husband resided in Redmond, Washington, prior to her passing.
What was her cause of death?
In their Redmond, Washington, home on March 10, 2023, Zohreh and her husband were shot and killed.
At around two in the morning, a rumoured stalker broke into her home and shot her and her husband to death.
The suspect who allegedly broke into Zohreh’s home and shot both she and her husband is 38-year-old trucker Ramin Khodakaramrezaei.
After killing Zohreh and her husband, the suspect reportedly shot himself at the crime scene.
What did officials say about Zohreh’s death?
Redmond Police Chief Darrell Lowe stated in a press conference on March 10, 2023 that the suspect got into a fight with Zohreh’s mother before she was able to flee to the neighbor’s house and dial 911.
Additionally, he claimed that Zohreh and the suspect first connected on the social media app Clubhouse, and that she later complained to the police about being stalked by him and receiving more than 100 contacts from him in a single day.
Lowe also stated: “Our hearts go out to the victim’s family and the Redmond community following this horrific tragedy.
“This is an incredibly sad situation and the worst possible outcome of a stalking case. We will continue investigating what led to this tragic loss.”
After Zorah’s death, police said in a press release on March 10, 2023: “Khodakaramrezaei had reportedly listened to the female victim’s podcasts and began communicating with her. The victim and suspect became friends, but when things escalated, she filed a no-contact order against him.”
When asked why the shooting could not have been stopped by the restraining order against the suspect, Lowe added: “A restraining order is merely a document that authorises police to take enforcement measures in the event that a suspect disobeys the court order. A piece of paper, however, cannot shield someone from harm when that person is determined to do so.”
