Days before the murder-suicide, Khodakaramrezaei left Sadeghi threatening voicemails, telling her husband that the communications would only stop if he killed himself or died, Fox News reported.

Khodakaramrezaei was charged with stalking case and harassment just a week before the attack but was still in possession of firearms. Sadeghi and her husband had sought a temporary order of protection, and the court had ordered Khodakaramrezaei to surrender his weapons. Unfortunately, the order came too late, and the couple was fatally shot in their $1.3 million home in Redmond, 15 miles east of Seattle, a news article reported.

This tragic incident highlights the urgent need for more effective measures to protect victims of stalking and harassment. Victims need to be taken seriously when they report stalking and harassment and provided with adequate protection and support.

In conclusion, the murder-suicide of Zohreh Sadeghi and her husband is a tragic reminder of the dangers of stalking and harassment. It is essential to prioritize the safety and protection of victims and take swift and effective action to prevent further harm.
