Police in Seattle are charging one of Microsoft's most promising, young and talented engineers with first-degree murder and second-degree assault for allegedly stabbing his girlfriend to death.
Police claim that Ahmed Hassan Osman, 23, brutally stabbed his lovely girlfriend Nyaruot Chuol, 20, to death on January 24th.
Nyaruot and Ahmed had been dating for a period of time, according to her cousin. The relationship had deteriorated over the past weeks and Nyaruot had blocked Ahmed’s number from her cellphone, the cousin told the local press.
On Jan. 23, however, Nyaruot and her cousin were at Ahmed’s apartment after picking up food at Taco Bell. All three were drinking Remy Martin Cognac and Ahmed was smoking marijuana.
In the early morning hours, Ahmed and Nyaruot reportedly got into an argument after she refused to have sex with him. Ahmed then slapped Nyaruot and demanded that both women leave his apartment.
Nyaruot attempted two defend herself, but things quickly went from bad to worse. At one point, Ahmed allegedly began to strangle her. The cousin claims that she tried to punch Ahmed to get him to stop. He eventually let Nyaruot go and she fell to the ground.
After the attack, the women left the apartment and were waiting for the elevator when Ahmed came at them with a large kitchen knife. He stabbed them both, killing Nyaruot.
In addition to the cousin's statement, Detectives have obtained video from the apartment complex showing Ahmed stabbing both women.
During the investigation, detectives learned that Osman had been employed as a Microsoft software engineer since the age of 21 and was recently promoted. He received a bonus of $30,000 in 2020 and based on his federal income tax withholding for 2020 he had an annual salary of between $163,000 and $207,000. He also owns a rental property in Seattle and detectives found documents in his apartment for a newly purchased Tesla.
