Bodies of murder victim Ibrahim Yousef and suspect are flown home
THE bodies of a murder victim and the man believed to have killed him will be buried in their home countries.
Father-of-five Ibrahim Yousef, who died at his home in Gloucester Road, Boscombe, will return to Qarsalme in Iraq, while Valerijs Grigorjevs will be buried in Latvia.
Mr Yousef is Kurdish, and according to the ethnic group’s traditions, will be buried facing Mecca with stones marking his head and feet.
The bodies of both men have already been flown out of the UK following the opening of inquests into their deaths.
Police believe suspect Grigorjevs, of Heathcote Road in Boscombe, stabbed the popular businessman to death before driving into the path of a lorry in Wiltshire at 6.15am on Friday, October 11.
Officers investigating the 27-year-old’s death in the horrific collision traced the licence plate of the Toyota Yaris he was driving back to Mr Yousef, who owned the car.
When they visited the property at lunchtime on the same day, they discovered him dead in his home.
He had suffered massive head trauma and had two stab wounds.
Two knives, believed to be the murder weapons, were recovered by officers at the scene.
The victim, 42, owned the Five Star Car Wash in Boscombe, which remains closed, although many have laid floral tributes outside.
Detective Inspector Marcus Hester, who is leading the investigation into the murder, said no one else is being sought by police in connection with the incident, and said the men were known to each other.
To speak to police with information about the incident, call 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
