Eliyas Aregahegne has been charged with first degree murder in the random stabbing of a Washington D.C. intern.
Margery Magill (pictured below), of Yuba City, California, was a student at UC Davis and had moved to D.C. to intern when she was stabbed to death on the street…Randomly.
The 27-year-old was walking a dog for a family in D.C. when aroud 9 p.m. she was stabbed multiple times. People in the area heard screams and found Magill with multiple stab wounds across the street from MedStar Washington Hospital Center on Irving Street NW.
Police arrested 24-year-old Eliyas Aregahegne one day later and charged him with first-degree murder.
According to D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham, Aregahegne appeared to randomly target Magill and that it was not a robbery or an attempted sexual assault.
Social media tells little of the history of the suspect. He was supposedly a “promising” student who was briefly in college but then left after a brief time. He previously attended a mentoring school but the school the suspect graduated from didn’t have it’s charter renewed…It was that bad.
Eliyas describes himself as “Ethiopian” on his social media bio:
The big question that remains unanswered is if Eliyas Aregahegne was a refugee from Ethiopia.
FYI: Ethiopian refugees have come to the U.S. in recent years in the thousands. Just last year, over four thousand Ethiopian refugees were taken in mostly by the U.S.:
– UNHCR Ethiopia’s resettlement submissions target for 2018 is set at 4,150 refugees, mainly to the USA. However, UNHCR continued to advocate for resettlement quota with different countries and has secured submissions to New Zealand (130 individuals), Sweden (250 individuals) and Canada (800 individuals) for 2018.
Why are we bringing thousands of Ethiopian citizens to the U.S. when we have so many needy Americans to care for?
We don’t know if this young man is a refugee but he describes himslef as Ethiopian. It would be helpful to know his citizenship status.
