With large numbers of inmates being released from jails and prisons across the country because of the Coronavirus, these types of crimes aren’t too surprising.
A rape suspect who was released from jail in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Ibrahim E. Bouaichi, went on to kill the woman who had accused him, police in Virginia say.
On Wednesday, July 29, officers found a woman shot to death on S. Greenmount Drive. It was Alexandria’s first homicide of the year. The victim was later identified as Karla Elizabeth Dominguez Gonzalez.
Gonzalez had testified against Bouaichi in Alexandria District Court in December. . . .Courtney Pomeroy, “Police: Rape suspect, freed due to virus, kills his accuser in Alexandria,” WJLA TV ABC Channel 7, August 7, 2020.
