The brutal [slaying] last March El Cajon of Shaima Alawadi still remains a mystery. Because of what seems to me a series of blunders by the El Cajon Police Department, the crime gained international interest as a possible “hate crime.” Alawadi, the mother of five children, was 32 and a Muslim.
An arrest was finally made on Nov. 8 of Kassim Alhimidi, 48, Alawadi’s husband who is also Muslim. Because this was no longer considered a “hate crime,” national and international attention disappeared, and for some reason, the local media decided to ignore this crime as well.
On Jan. 23, I attended a “Preliminary Exam Readiness” in El Cajon Superior Court, an event scheduled some two months prior. Alhimidi was there, but no TV crews or newspaper reporters.
The outcome was to schedule a preliminary hearing for April 3. That means it will be more than a year after her death that the public will (perhaps) finally find out what happened on March 21, 2012 (the day she was attacked). We may learn what evidence the ECPD had on Nov. 8 that it didn’t have three months (or even six months) before. – Bob Clark, El Cajon
