Parenting does not cease to happen when the child becomes an adult. For many parents the child is still living with them for several more years as they are in education or saving for a deposit on their own home. The 22-year-old woman, Ameri, was living a normal life with her family. Unfortunately, one-day tragedy struck when her father killed her as an ‘honor killing.’ Her father claimed that her daughter had committed a serious crime, and the only way to save her life was to kill her. According to him, his daughter came home just a couple of minutes late from her night out.
When she got home at 11:30 p.m., her father hit her with an iron rod so bad that she could not recover. It appeared that her father was furious with her for being out later than planned the night before. She was still breathing after he beat her with the iron. Her father, on the other hand, did not call for help. Instead of helping her, he let her suffer for the next 24 hours. She bled to death and couldn’t survive her injuries. Ameri’s sister stated that she paid a visit to her parents’ house that morning, between 8:30 and 9:00. When knocking on the door yielded no response, she entered the home only to be shocked at the scene before her.
The house was in complete disorder, so she waited for her parents to return. Her father came home first; however, upon seeing his daughter’s suspicious expression he fled from the premises immediately afterward. Ameri’s clothes were soaked in blood and the walls were covered in it when her mother arrived and walked into her room. The police arrived at the scene and followed a blood trail that led to the father’s car. They found him in a village nearby using his mobile phone and arrested him, although he denied knowing Ameri’s whereabouts. The rescue operation continued until midnight when they finally found her.
The father eventually owned up to murdering his daughter. He took the cops to the location where he had discarded Ameri’s lifeless body. It was in an open area of the city, according to the police. Despite her father’s savage beating, she died just two hours before the cops discovered her corpse, according to them. The father had threatened to kill their daughter in the past and even tried to do so, according to authorities in Iran.
