There’s sound mind and then there’s sound mind

The film-maker’s murder was discovered in the early hours of Sunday morning. Police were called to the Tehran suburb of Ekbatan after someone spotted human body parts in a bin, local media reported, quoting the judge, Mohammad Shahriari, the head of the Tehran criminal court.

Police found human remains, including two hands, and used fingerprints to identify the victim. They then went to the house of Khorramdin’s parents.

Iran Khorramdin, 74, and Akbar Khorramdin, 81, told police they had used sleeping tablets to knock their son out before suffocating and stabbing him, and cutting up his body, the Hamshahri newspaper reported.

And:

The parents claimed they killed the son-in-law because he was abusive, murdered their daughter because she became addicted to drugs, and targeted their son because he was single and having relationships with students, according to Hussein Rahimi, a Tehran police chief, quoted in newspapers.

Umm, why?

During the court hearing, Akbar told Hamshahri reporters he had no regrets. “I don’t regret what I did with the cooperation of my wife. They were corrupted and I thank God.”

Oh, OK.

Court officials said the parents seemed largely of sound mind but they needed to investigate further.

Well, yeeeees………

    Police found human remains, including two hands, and used fingerprints .

    No new ones to be had, I imagine.

  2. The question is, was the son in law acting out of religious zeal when he killed their daughter ?

    If he was truly righteous and a good Muslim doing Allah’s bidding by ridding the world of junkies and fornicators, then the parents may soon learn, briefly, what the view from a crane is like.

  3. Diverse culture coming to a town near you.

    Who seriously believes it’s going to stop at slaughtering sheep in the garden?

  4. The question is, was the son in law acting out of religious zeal when he killed their daughter ?

    Ottokring, the son-in-law didn’t kill their daughter, they did. They killed him 10 years ago (cos abusive) and her 3 years ago (cos drugs). Son just now cos adultery.

    Not sure if there’s any difference in being bonkers or zealously following a vile religion.

  5. Seems like a decent husband would have copped to the crime and left his wife out of the story.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they each tried to claim the other was solely responsible.

  6. Oh I see, thanks PJF, poor use of the comma there misled me.

    Well in that case they were doing Allah’s bidding and obviously are innocent.

  7. “ Iran Khorramdin, 74, and Akbar Khorramdin, 81”

    When people have nothing left to lose there’s not a lot to stop them acting how they like.
