Buffalo boy, 10, called 911 repeatedly before stepdad allegedly beat him to death
Boy’s murder leaves neighbors shocked
DA: boy beaten to death while tied up
“He came out, and he dragged that kid by the neck in the house. He dragged that kid in the house, and the kid was hollering,” said one woman.
“They’re really nice people, except for the father,” said Kathy Kulbacki, who’s familiar with the family. “He’s pretty loud. I’ve seen him yell at the kids for playing in the field,” she stated.
DeGeorge said he could not disclose details, but he confirmed that there have been “seven or eight” 911 calls placed from the boy’s house since 2010.
Since then, it has been revealed that Ali had made at least two phone calls to 911 to report that his Somali stepfather was hurting him, according to WKBW.
I’m sorry… how can the entire neighborhood In Buffolo, NY where 10-year old Abdifatah Mohamud was beaten to death in his basement be in so much shock when so many people knew what an asshole his mean stepfater, Ali Mohamad Mohamud, was? Police were called to the house numerous times by the boy. People saw his step-father drag the boy inside his house by his neck? What in the motherfuck is wrong with this picture? One question remains —- WHERE THE FUCK IS HIS MOTHER? I literally read 14 articles about this case, not one mentions Abdifatah’s mother.
This story is so hard to stomach, an unfortunate part to this “job” here at BB.net. The details just have my stomach in knots and my face wet with tears. Ali Mohamad Mohamud didn’t just murder Abdifatah. He bludgeoned him , even tortured him. He tied his hands, stuffed a sock in his mouth and taped it shut with duct tape. Then, Mohamud took a baker’s rolling pin and, not once or twice, but 70 times struck the boy, who a for a full year earlier had cried out for help.
And just like SO many other senseless murders of children, this story is akin to others that we write here…. a catastrophic failure of a system that is meant to protect children. When will it ever end?
Meanwhile, this murdering step-father has been arrested – thank God. He admitted to what he did – thank God. Mohamud is facing second degree murder charges. He remains behind bars without bail. He appeared in court late last month after the murder, but the judge denied access to the public including the victim’s grieving family. Now he awaits his fate and prosecutors have 45 days from his initial court hearing to present the case to a grand jury, if they indict him then his case would go to trial. I vote for death, or at least life without the possibility of parole. I vote we let his cellmate and any other inmate that he’s in close contact with, know what he did. Then I vote we pass out rolling pins. I’m a huge advocate for “an eye for an eye”.
May your RIP sweet Abdifatah. I’m sorry that we failed you. I’m sorry that your mother apparently failed you too. If all this was going on in your home, I know she knew and she did nothing. In my opinion, you’re dead because she didn’t protect you.
