Our homicide detectives will continue to be the lead on the murder investigation of Nabra Hassanen. The Fairfax County Police Department has partnered closely with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office with the common goal of justice for Nabra as well as for her family, friends, and community. Our department will continue to work alongside the Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney as this case moves forward.
We know this is an incredibly difficult time, especially for our Muslim community. Chief Edwin C. Roessler Jr. met today with leaders from the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS Center) including Imam Mohamed Magid and Chaplain Joshua Salaam. The Chief assured them we will continue to diligently investigate the case and provide our support. We have a long-standing relationship with the ADAMS Center, and our hearts go out to everyone in our Muslim community and beyond for this tragic crime.
A community vigil for Nabra is planned for tomorrow night at 6:30 at Lake Anne Plaza in Reston. Chief Roessler and Imam Magid will be available beforehand at 5:45 to talk with members of the media and community.
