41 year old woman shot dead in Zurich

The article below is in German, apologies in advance.

Appears motives and background are as yet unknown. A 41 year old Bangladeshi mother of two, shot early this morning in the Schwamendingen/Oerlikon area of the city. Police are looking for witnesses.

Re: 41 year old woman shot dead in Zurich

When I finished the article, I immediately jumped to conclusions; "Zurich is not safe, etc etc" But on second thought, when reconsidering what happened, it does seem unfair to generalize this case...

some idiot, monster, shot a woman dead at 5.30am in front of her house... probably had already been stalking her for days.. no government or police force could have prevented it in any country on the world..

Re: 41 year old woman shot dead in Zurich

This post was submitted by a relative of the 41-year-old woman shot on 19 October 2009. The original content has been removed by request of the poster, out of respect for her privacy and grief at this very difficult time.

Re: 41 year old woman shot dead in Zurich

Of course my sympathies as well.

To answer the questions asked: Yes, the name has been released to the
media as here in the Blick article.

Since the article has hit the media here... No, this thread will not be
removed.

Let's wait for the full police investigation before we jump to quick conclusions about somebody having stalked her etc or any other attempt to explain who it was or why they did it.

Having said that, I extend my heartfelt sympathies to all family and friends of the victim.

You never think its going to be you... or someone you know! If any relative or friend is reading this, I just wanted to extend my sympathies and sorrow regarding this persons death. I hope that in this hard time you all can find some peace and time to grief.
