Police in Washington state said a truck driver from Texas who had been stalking the podcast presenter killed her and her husband early on Friday morning.
Redmond Police Chief Darrell Lowe told reporters the murders were “the absolute worst outcome for a stalking investigation.”
The situation is “every victim’s, every detective’s, and every police chief’s worst nightmare,” he said.
The suspect, later identified as 38-year-old Ramin Khodakaramrezaei, is thought to have entered the couple’s Redmond, Washington, house through a window at around 2 a.m. on that fateful day. The woman’s mother was able to escape the residence and run to neighbors to dial emergency services.
Redmond police spokeswoman Jill Green said that when officers arrived, they discovered the woman’s husband, 35, with a gunshot wound to the chest.
The police gave the victim CPR, but he tragically passed away due to his wounds. Both the shooter and the woman, age 33, were located dead in the home. Green stated that the gunman shot himself in the head.

No one has come forward to claim the victims
According to Lowe, the suspect and the woman met in a social networking program for native Persian speakers.
It was through her podcast that “he got to know her,” and “they struck up kind of a friendship, chatted,” as Green put it. But then he started bombarding her with messages, and she finally cut ties.
According to Lowe, the woman first contacted police in Redmond in December and then again in January because the suspect’s behavior had “intensified.”

Lowe claimed there was a time when the man made more than a hundred contact attempts with her in a single day. According to Lowe, he made a personal appearance and sent presents via the mail.
The victims had installed security cameras and taken “every precaution possible,” he claimed.
Earlier this week, according to Lowe, he received a briefing on the matter.
According to court records from the King County District Court, Khodakaramrezaei was given a bench warrant for his arrest on March 2. He was charged with one count of misdemeanor stalking and two counts of telephone harassment.
According to court documents, Khodakaramrezaei was issued a temporary restraining order on March 3, and a hearing for a permanent injunction has been scheduled for April 3.
Without Khodakaramrezaei’s presence at the hearing, the judge ordered him to hand over his firearms. Green stated that authorities could not serve the order on the gunman “because we weren’t able to establish contact with him” due to the man’s residence in Texas.
The suspect’s length of time in Washington, DC, before the shooting is unknown.
Sadly, the stalker incident ended tragically,” Green stated.
