"As Dr. Mohammad Abu-Salha calmly, clinically, described reviewing the autopsy reports for his murdered daughters and son-in-law, members of the House Judiciary Committee clasped their hands over the mouths, stifling tears.
"I must be one of a few physicians, if not the only one, who read his own children's murder autopsy reports and details. They are seared into my memory," Abu-Salha testified Tuesday at the committee's hearing on hate crimes and the rise of white nationalism.
The Feb. 10, 2015 murders of 21-year-old Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, her 23-year-old husband Deah Shaddy Barakat, and 19-year-old sister Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, shocked the Chapel Hill, North Carolina community where they shot in their home. The U.S. Department of Justice investigated the deaths as a hate crime, but the suspect Craig Hicks was ultimately charged with three counts of first-degree murder. He has not yet stood trial."
