The most recent and 12th “honor” crime in the Kingdom is one that is a bit curious and even more outrageous than the usual. The story apparently is that a 17-year-old boy comes into the house to discover his 22-year-old married sister signing a letter and handing it to her father; the letter containing a list of “lovers” she’s had extramarital affairs with. The boy grabs the letter from his father, becomes enraged and stabs his sister with a knife repeatedly until she dies. A secondary source claims the sister and her husband were seeking a divorce before the incident. Interrogators don’t seem to be buying the story; I’ve never heard of women who write confession letters to their fathers listing the men they’ve slept with.
The sad part I suppose is that even with handwriting analysis proving the letter is a fake, I donÃ¢??t think it will alter much in the verdict given that he confessed to Ã¢??cleansing his familyÃ¢??s honorÃ¢?Â.
