Cleveland “man” sentenced in grizzly murder of his ex-wife (honor killing?)

Iraqi Fahad Mohammed Saeed with attorneys (showed no remorse). Gee, wonder why his middle name isn’t mentioned in nor is the fact that he and his now dead wife got in to the US through the US Refugee Admissions Program!

Once again we see news that attempts to bury the fact that the murderer is a Muslim REFUGEE!  It makes me want to scream.

This is the bare bones story from this past week (hat tip: Jim) that sent me out looking for more on the Iraqi “national” who was sentenced, not to life in prison, for a horrific murder that saw him bury his dead wife in front of their 3-year-old, but to 25 years on a plea deal.

(Is the plea deal just to keep more politically incorrect details from the public that would have come out in what would surely be a sensational jury trial?)

Here is and then keep reading to see what I learned from earlier reporting (elsewhere):

CLEVELAND, Ohio — A man was sentenced Thursday to 25 years in prison after admitting to strangling his ex-wife in 2016, then stuffing her body into a duffel bag and burying her remains as their 3-year-old son watched.

Fahad Saeed, 28, showed little remorse before Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge Pamela Barker imposed the sentence.

“Things happen,” Saeed said through an Arabic interpreter.

Cuyahoga County prosecutors and Saeed’s lawyers struck a deal on Thursday that would see him plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter, kidnapping and burglary charges, and serve the maximum time in prison on each charge for a total of 25 years.

Prosecutors agreed not pursue an aggravated murder charge that would put Saeed behind bars for life. [What the hell!—ed]

The court hearing offered details into Al-Dhannoon’s October 2016 disappearance from her apartment on Lakewood’s Gold Coast, and the months-long search that ended when investigators found her body in May 2017.


The toddler told FBI agents in a November 2016 interview that “daddy put mommy in the pickies near the horses,” an apparent reference to the park’s carousel, Assistant Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Blaise Thomas said.

Read on, it was a jailhouse snitch who ultimately helped law enforcement find her body.

Saeed, an Iraqi national in the U.S. on a green-card visa, will be subject to deportation once he is released from prison.

Al-Dhannoon and Saeed married in 2011. She filed for the protection order in November 2015 after he became increasingly violent, according to court records.  [Hey! Violent! I thought these Iraqi refugees were ‘robustly’ screened!—ed]

Charged in May when the body was found


In Cleveland’s ABC News 5 report on the missing woman in November of 2016, they reported that Al Dhannoon and her ex were refugees.

Here is what the New York Post said in May that has shamefully not mentioned in its sentencing story:

CLEVELAND — An Ohio man was indicted Thursday on aggravated murder and other charges after the remains of his ex-wife who’d been missing since October were found in a container outside Cleveland.

Fahad Mohammed Saeed, 27, of Cleveland, also was charged in the indictment with kidnapping, felonious assault, aggravated burglary, stalking and abuse of a corpse in connection with the death of 25-year-old Roaa Al-Dhannoon. She was last seen Oct. 16 at her Lakewood, Ohio, apartment and was reported missing by friends three days later.


The couple divorced in September, and Al-Dhannoon was granted sole custody of their young son, Assistant Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Blaise Thomas said.

So one month after she divorced him he murdered her.  “Things happen” he said.

Saeed and Al-Dhannoon came to the U.S. about three years ago as refugees from Iraq, Thomas said. They initially lived in California before settling in the Cleveland area. Thomas said Saeed and Al-Dhannoon were in the process of obtaining residency status.

Frankly it is maddening to see stories like the piece that leaves out two salient points—they were Muslims and refugees.  And, what I think happened is that Al-Dhannoon was becoming Americanized (look at her photo) and hubby was so angry he killed her—“Things happen.”

So in addition to a vile person having been admitted to the US (robust vetting?) the taxpayers of America will have paid for all of the criminal investigation and his legal representation/court expenses and soon will pay for 25 years of incarceration (Halal food? Special prayer breaks? etc.)!

Ask ‘Welcoming America’ if when they are promoting the economic benefits of refugees in Cleveland whether they have factored in the enormous costs of caring for violent refugee criminals like Fahad Mohammed Saeed.

(Isn’t there one of you out there who has the time to research what one of these refugee murderers or violent criminals, sentenced to long prison terms, cost the taxpayers of your state?)

Supposedly Saeed will be deported when he walks free at age 52, but who is going to be watching to be sure he is removed from America!

And, what kind of a man will his little son grow into having watched his father bury his mother (stuffed into a bag) and thrown into a ditch?

This post is filed in my ‘crimes’ category here (2,198 previous posts!).

When I hear the refugee industry propagandists say that refugees aren’t terrorists and criminals they may really believe it because most media is working overtime to cover for refugees who commit crimes!
