The tone of his messages made Sadeghi uneasy, and she became uncomfortable with his constant communication.
In December, Sadeghi informed the authorities about the suspect’s harassing behavior.
Khodakaramrezaei had sent her over 100 text messages and made several phone calls per day. The harassment escalated, and he began stalking her in person. The stalker followed her to a conference in Denver in 2022.
Sadeghi reached out to the authorities again in mid-January, and an investigator was assigned to follow up on the case. But the suspect was difficult to track down due to his occupation as a truck driver.
In March, a judge issued a temporary protection order, but it had not been served at the time of the murders.
Chief Lowe stressed that a protection order does not provide physical protection.
Khodakaramrezaei had no criminal record prior to the murders. And his motive for the killings remains unknown.
“Our hearts go out to the victim’s family and the Redmond community following this horrific tragedy,” Lowe said. “This is an incredibly sad situation and the worst possible outcome of a stalking case. We will continue investigating what led to this tragic loss.”
