3 Women Found Dead in Chicago Apartments


The Associated Press


CHICAGO | Three women were found bludgeoned to death with a hammer in two apartments on the city's far North Side, and police had a suspect in custody Sunday.

Officers found the bodies after they were called to a domestic dispute Saturday morning.

They also found a man hitting himself on the head with a blunt object, apparently trying to kill himself, police spokeswoman Monique Bond said. The 56-year-old man was hospitalized in police custody and was in fair condition early Sunday, authorities said.

No charges had been filed by early Sunday.

Police Officer Hector Alfaro said investigators learned that the suspect had quarreled with his wife and her stepsister at their home, had apparently bludgeoned them and then went around the corner to his in-laws' house, where he apparently attacked his mother-in-law.

Authorities did not release the name of the victims, but neighbors and friends identified two of the women as Karmin Khooshabeh, 44, and her stepsister, Karolin Khooshabeh, 40. They said the third victim was their 60-year-old mother.

Karmin Khooshabeh was the arrested man's wife, said Robert Estrepaniance, who is Karolin Khooshabeh's neighbor and former husband. The couple had been having marital problems, he said.

Estrepaniance said the family was Assyrian Christian, a minority group in Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria. He said he and his former wife had fled Iran in 1995, fearing persecution for their faith. Her parents came to the United States about four years ago, and the family arranged for Karmin Khooshabeh and her husband to immigrate about three months ago, he said.

Chicago's Assyrian community - about 100,000 - is one of the largest in the country.

My mom *thinks* she knows the family, but I doubt it. We used to live on that street (two blocks north) before we moved into our house in the dreaded suburbs and I'd seriously be in shock if it happened so close to me, just because nothing like that ever really happened in that neighborhood. Well, I only remember about that Pakistani guy who attempted to bludgeon his wife to death outside of a store on Devon...

I'm not shocked that something like this happened in our community; Assyrians are human just like everyone else, and he isn't the first Assyrian man to kill family members. Like this lady I know said on the news "They seemed nice," well, they always seem nice. Most potential murderers don't walk around with signs on their backs.

Allah menyikhloo en meeteh, this was such a terrible way for anyone to die, especially at the hands of a loved one. May they rest in peace.

We use to live on Winona, it's like 1 and a half blocks from where that happened.  I called Dennis and asked him if he knew them, and he's not sure either.  What a shame, we're now killing each other?  Isn't what's happening in Iraq enough?  R.I.P. 

I read in the newspaper that her sister just came here about 3 months ago, and the wife was helping them financially get back on their feet.  How sad...

No disrespect to 'Chaldean' who posted this, but again I repeat: people here are still not making a good use of their titles.

His title for this breaking news was: "North Side hammer attack kills 3 in family"

-Where is North Side?
-People die everyday, and why should people care (unless we know they are Assyrian)

It has got 15 views and 0 replies.

Look at my title. It reflect reality and grabs your attention to read it and reply, and generates enough views. It is not like a contest lol, but khena if you are going to post something, do it in a way that will get as many people reading it as possible.

Shareh Chaldean I am really coming hard on him, sorry bro  :blush2:

No, actually, it is a contest around here, everything is. :dry:

Anyway, I think a lot of people on the forums use terribly unimaginative titles.

By the way, I care when anyone dies.



They have now released the alleged murderer's name and the name of his mother-in-law. They keep mentioning some video he recorded with his camera phone that shows him confessing and saying he was provoked because he was disrespected and because the women told him he wasn't a man. In the apartment where he killed his mother-in-law, a child (her grandson I believe) was sleeping in a nearby room and didn't wake up to what was happening. The more details come out, the sadder this story becomes...

Edit: I removed the man's name because I keep getting different spellings of it; not sure which is right.

Here's an update:

Murders blamed on 'theme of disrespect'

February 20, 2007
BY SCOTT FORNEK Staff Reporter
A 55-year-old refugee from Iran beat his wife, sister-in-law and mother-in-law to death with a three-pound hammer one by one after they questioned his masculinity, prosecutors said Monday.

" 'I do the job,' " Daryoush Ebrahimi told police who arrived at the murder scene, according to Assistant Cook County State's Attorney Sanju Oommen. "He said the women had disrespected him and said that he was not a man."

The West Rogers Park resident was ordered held without bond Monday for the triple homicide, which police said was premeditated and occurred over a five-hour period Saturday.

Hands cuffed behind his back, Ebrahimi wore a filmy white hospital gown in court. What appeared to be a self-inflicted hammer wound was visible on his bald head. He was beating himself on the head with the hammer when police arrived to find the three dead bodies, police said.

Investigators are still seeking a precise motive in the slaying of Ebrahimi's 44-year-old wife, Karmin Koshabeh, and her sister, Karolin Khooshabeh, 40, in the couples' second-floor apartment, and the death of his mother-in-law, Ileshvah Eyvazimooshabad, 60, in her apartment across the street -- beyond what authorities called "a recurring theme of disrespect."

All three victims were bludgeoned and stabbed.

Ebrahimi is Assyrian, but came here on refugee status from Iran Nov. 29, said Commander David Sobczyk. He graduated from college in Iran and was an engineer who owned his own company before coming to this country, his lawyer said. He was to start a job Monday as a mechanical engineer in northwest Indiana.

He has four children -- 31, 28, 26 and 17.

Typical for an assyrian/chaldean whatever you want to call us, to say he was being disrespected when all they do is disrespect their partners. They want to be the kings of the house,but they act like little girls.
