Muslim migrant invader, Mohamed Abdi, 38, arrested for setting his own home on fire which killed his 14-year-old son. Abdi came to this country from Somalia, while his son was born in this country. Abdi remains jailed in lieu of $2 million bail.
New Observer (h/t Marvin W) Seattle Fire Department arrived at a house in the 9300 block of 39th Avenue South, to find the residence fully engulfed in flames. Five of the residents managed to escape the blaze, but a 14-year-old boy was trapped inside. Firefighters found the boy, later identified as Jabriel Isaq, inside and rushed him to Harborview Medical Center, where he died four days later.
When Abdi was told by detectives that his son had died, “He showed no reaction and did not respond to investigator’s questions except to ask for water, a cigarette and a Coke,” the affidavit said.
The Seattle Times reported: “The defendant set fire to his own residence in the middle of the night when multiple members of his family were asleep in their beds,” including his son, who died from inhalation injuries, Senior Deputy Prosecutor Terence Carlstrom wrote in charging papers. “He walked away from the engulfed residence while his family scrambled to escape and kept walking even as fire and police vehicles drove past him en route to his residence.”
The family told investigators that everyone was asleep when the fire started and the last time Abdi was seen was around 1 a.m., the affidavit said.
Investigators found multiple indications that the fire was likely started with gasoline, according to the affidavit. Abdi was seen walking away from the house on surveillance video from neighboring residences just before first responders arrived, according to the affidavit.
The affidavit states Seattle police officers responded to a 911 call at the same residence in July 2018, where family members “reported that [Abdi] had threatened to kill members of the household and had also threatened to burn the house down with everyone in it.”
