Early Friday, a podcast host and her husband were tragically murdered in their home in Washington state. The couple was killed by a man who had been stalking podcaster Dr. Zohreh Sadeghi, 33, for several months.
The perpetrator, Ramin Khodakaramrezaei, 38, broke into the couple’s Redmond home at 1:45 a.m. through an open window. He fatally shot podcaster Zohreh and her husband, Mohammed Naseri, 35, before turning the gun on himself.
Sadeghi’s mother, who was in the house at the time, managed to escape and called 911 from a neighbor’s home.
