Seattle Podcaster & Her Husband Killed By Stalker After Calling Police For Help
Another example of a woman reporting that she feared for her life from her stalker, and the police not doing anything serious until she was already dead.
On Thursday night a woman and her husband were murdered by a man who had been stalking her after hearing about it on a podcast. According to court records obtained by DailyMail.com, Sohreh Sadeghi33, and her husband, Mohammed Naseri35, was killed in their home in Redmond, Washington, about 15 miles from Seattle.

According to the outlet, a 38-year-old trucker from Texas was named Ramin Khodakaramrezaei discovered Sadeghi after hearing her tech podcast. The two met in person, something she initially seemed to keep from her husband. However, over the next few months, he contacted her with phone calls and visits, which led her in March to press charges of stalking against him. A Redmond police spokesman Green Jill told NBC News:
“It seems that he got to know her because of a podcast she was doing and they got some kind of friendship, they talked. But then he just started sending a lot of messages to the point where she decided to break up and talk to us and our detectives to get a restraining order.”
Sadeghi said in her petition for an unrelated restraining order, per DM:
“He has outbursts of anger and is completely delusional. These deceptions make me fear for my life and the lives of my loved ones.”
“He contacted my husband and still does. He has come to my neighborhood several times, staying at pubs around my neighborhood, he has parked down my street hoping to see me. I am very afraid for my safety. “
Green said police could not serve the restraining order on Khodakaramrezaei because they could not locate him at his home in Texas. Apparently it was already much closer.
Just a week after the statement, Khodakaramrezaei went to Sadeghi’s home in the middle of the night, around 2 in the morning, climbed into the window, and shot her and her husband with a handgun.
Sadeghi’s mother was able to flee to a neighbor and call the police. Khodakaramrezaei did not wait around to be caught. He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound before first responders arrived. Police found Naseri on the front lawn, possibly after exiting the home with a gunshot wound to the chest. Unfortunately he died at the scene.
The poor woman knew she was in danger. If the police had treated the case with the same level of fear, it was clear that she had. See more on the horrific crime (below):
