An Ohio father, Jamal T. Mansour, was taken into custody after his daughter, Tahani Mansour, was found dead from two gunshot wounds to the head while she slept in her bed. The incident led to Jamal being charged with murder, felonious assault, and domestic violence.
According to reports from WXIX via Gateway Pundit, Jamal’s family claimed that his diabetes was a contributing factor to the tragic event. Lt. George Lichman from the Rocky River Police mentioned that the motive behind the crime was unclear, stating that an argument had occurred between the father and his daughter.
During Jamal’s appearance in Rocky River Municipal Court on September 29, the judge dismissed his claim of an accidental shooting. The judge described the act as an “assassination” and expressed concerns that Jamal might pose a threat to other family members or attempt to flee the country. As a result, the prosecutor requested an increase in Jamal’s bond from $1.3 million to $4.5 million, which was granted.
Jamal, originally from Jordan and now a naturalized U.S. citizen, co-owns several grocery stores and gas stations in the area with his brother. Tahani, the youngest of six children, pursued higher education at Cleveland State University and Northeast Ohio Medical University, where she was working towards a pharmacy doctorate. She resided with her parents at the time of the incident.
According to Lt. Lichman, the father was not receiving medical care during the incident or while in custody. Neighbors described the family as quiet and introverted, as they rarely interacted with others in the community. Horvath, a neighbor, mentioned having limited knowledge of the family’s children, as they had never been seen or recognized in the area.
