Pictures from inside the centre show a trail of blood left by Alexandra Mezher, 22, (photo below) after she was stabbed to death multiple times by a Muslim invader claiming to be 15 years old, but who actually is at least 21. Residents heard her begging for her life as she was stabbed repeatedly in the kitchen.
UK Daily Mail (h/t Brenda K) Blood smeared across the floors and splattered up the walls, these are the horrifying photos from inside the child asylum centre where a female Swedish social worker was murdered in ‘a frenzied attack’.
Alexandra Mezher, 22, bled to death after being stabbed as she tried to break up a fight involving two of the young migrants she was caring for.
The psychology graduate’s killing on January 25 at an asylum centre for unaccompanied minor refugees in Mölndal, a suburb of Gotherburg, sent shockwaves through Sweden and around the world. Asylum seeker Youssaf Khaliif Nuur, from Ethiopia, is charged with her murder.
But these grisly pictures taken from the scene show how Miss Mezher appeared to have put up a fight against her killer.
The trail of blood reveals for the first time how she tried to escape from the vicious attack, managing to crawl from the kitchen where she was stabbed with such force her artery was severed.
The psychology graduate, originally from Lebanon, then pulled herself along the corridor, seeking safety in a bedroom. It was here – lying on the floor in amongst the white sheets stained red by her blood – that she lost her fight for life.
‘The young man has shown extreme ruthlessness and harshness which caused the death of Alexandra Mezhers,’ prosecutor Linda Wiking noted.
Suspect Nuur claimed to be just 15 to win himself a spot in the home. But prosecutors can now say conclusively that Nuur is at least 21, if not older, meaning he should not have been at the centre, which was for teenagers aged 14 to 17. Nuur will be deported to Ethiopia on completing his sentence if he is convicted.
The prosecutor’s report also reveals witnesses interviewed by police told how Miss Mezher begged for her life, and was heard to scream ‘No, no, no Youssaf’ at least 10 times as he stabbed her.
Miss Mezher, who had worked at the centre for just four months, bled to death before help arrived, in the sparsely furnished room. She would have needed treatment within minutes if she were to have any chance of survival, the report says.
Horrifyingly, it also reveals Miss Mezher knew she was in danger the day she went to work to cover the night shift by herself.
Her mother Chiméne Mezher, 42, told police: ‘She got a call from her job saying that someone had taken a knife. She sat on the sofa, but got up and went into the bedroom and talked. ‘I do not think she wanted me to know she did not want me to worry worried.
‘Alexandra knew how to handle children including violent ones. ‘But those she was working with were not children, they were big powerful guys – she could see it in their eyes and their bodies. ‘A few were maybe under 18, but the rest were older, maybe 23 or 24.’
