Man Who Murdered His Family Demands To Go To Mecca, Judge Has Perfect Response

A Judge was left shocked after a man, who was found guilty for murdering his family, requested to be able to attend the Hajj, a compulsory Muslim religious ritual that takes place in Mecca. 55-year-old Fadel Jabado, was charged with the murder of his wife and son, as well as the life-threatening injury of another man, after his wife told him she wanted a divorce.

The self-employed, ice cream truck driver from South Florida went on a lethal killing spree after discovering his wife was going to leave him. Believing that his wife, Bassima, and son, Ahmad, where plotting to take his house, Mr Jabado shot them dead in their home, his wife in the kitchen and his son in his bedroom. Mr Jabado didn’t stop there, seeking out his wife’s real estate attorney, Mr. Larry Harshman, and shooting him multiple times. While Mr. Harshman survived the shooting, he was in a critical condition.

Jessica Alvarez, a Detective from the Miami-Dade Police department, released a statement regarding the incident: “The subject was angry about his wife Bassima Jabado, wanting a divorce and felt that his son, Ahmad Jabado, and Bassima were going to take the house from him, leaving him homeless and without money…The subject was angry at the real estate attorney Harshman because he assisted with the residential transaction”.

SWAT teams discovered the bodies of Mr. Jabado’s family before tracking him to an open field. After a stand-off of several hours, Mr. Jabado finally exited his car and was shot. Mr. Jabado was treated for his wounds at a nearby hospital before being taken into custody. While Mr. Jabado pleaded guilty to the two counts of first-degree murder and the one count of attempted murder, he made an outrageous request of the Jury, asking them to take into consideration his “familial sacrifices”, and permit him to attend the Hajj. The Judge did not feel particularly moved by Mr. Jabado’s plea, stating “you’re not getting out, it’s life.” Mr. Jabado was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
