A secondary and foreign source compared to the actual police reports.
An opinion from a man that was not there and is repeating hearsay.
you mean Nabra Hassanen's father? that Egyptian guy is filled with Ritualistic Islamic rules until his neck
.... The case is NOT clear., I actually wonder whether Nabra knew that 22 year old brutal scoundrel .... I don't see any good reason to Isolate her from group of 15 or so friends and beat her with metal bat.. http://heavy.com/news/2017/06/nabra-darwin-torres-muslim-girl-murder-virginia/
I told the detective: ‘I want to ask him one question. Why did he do that? Because he doesn’t like Muslims, or what?’ He tells me he has no answer for that. This answer is going to be in the court.”
well there I agree with Mr. Hassanen.. courts are the best way to ask questions and find answers https://patch.com/virginia/reston/murder-nabra-hassanen-what-you-need-know
Not much is known about Martinez Torres yet, but reports indicate that he is from El Salvador and apparently doesn't speak English, or at least not very well. The Post reports that he spoke through a Spanish translator to answer a judge's questions during his brief arraignment Monday in Fairfax County juvenile court. His next court appearance is set for July 19.
The Post also reported that Martinez Torres used a metal bat to assault Hassanen, based on information from her mother. UPDATE 9:47 a.m. Tuesday: Police said at a Monday evening press conference that they believe Marintez Torres hit Hassanen with a baseball bat and then took her with him in his car to a second location, where he assaulted her a second time and then dumped her body, returning to the scene of the altercation where a patrolling officer spotted him about an hour and a half after the argument first started.
UPDATE 6:08 p.m. Monday: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has gotten involved in the case. "On June 19, ICE lodged a detainer on Darwin Martinez Torres, a citizen and national of El Salvador, with the Adult Detention Center in Fairfax, Virginia. ICE lodges detainers on aliens who have been arrested on local criminal charges when the agency has probable cause to believe an alien is removable from the United States. Mr. Martinez Torres has no prior encounters with ICE."
Where did it happen?
The area where the assault happened is a quiet neighborhood just off the bustling Route 7 corridor near the border between Loudoun and Fairfax counties. Booming development in Sterling and Reston have led to a tremendous influx of families into the area in recent years wanting to settle down in an area that continues to add jobs. It's an area where teens like Hassanen felt safe walking around with their friends, which is why the killing was so shocking to the community.
Why was she out and about so early in the morning?
We are currently in the midst of Ramadan, a month-long period of fasting in the Islamic tradition when Muslims refrain from eating or drinking from sunrise until sunset. Hassanen and many teens like her in the area reportedly enjoy hanging out at an IHOP or McDonald's near their mosque early in the morning to eat before the day's fasting begins at sunrise. When Martinez Torres reportedly confronted Hassanen, she had been walking with her friends after going to one of those restaurants.

The All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS), located on Sugarland Road in Sterling near where the confrontation happened, describes itself as being an "Islamic center that is open and inviting to both men and women, young and old, and visitors of other faiths," according to its website. The ADAMS Center also says it is "committed to providing all of its attendees with a safe and welcoming environment to worship, learn, socialize, and serve the center and the greater community."
The ADAMS Center released a statement after Hassanen's death, saying mosque leadership was "devastated and heartbroken" over the incident.
"It is a time for us to come together to pray and care for our youth," the statement reads. "ADAMS has licensed counselors on site to assist anyone in need of counseling during these difficult times. We would also like to thank our community, government officials and interfaith partners for their prayers and support during these tough times."
Is this a hate crime?
The Fairfax County Police Department tweeted that they were not investigating this as a hate crime. Later, they issued an update stating that they believe road rage, not her religion, motivated the attack.
Before that update, BuzzFeed News quoted police spokesperson Don Gotthardt as saying that the investigation wasn't "as definitive" as the tweet made it seem and that the tweet could have been "crafted a little better," suggesting that police are still open to the possibility of treating this as a hate crime.
