May 26 2017 - [⚠: murder, brutality, intimate partner violence]
Detectives fear a Hamilton man wanted for #murder in the stabbing death of his girlfriend could be headed to Mexico.
Cops say Ager Mohsin Hasan (second pic), 24, was last spotted in #Tennessee on May 20 and told a pal he was headed south of the border.
On April 28, the body of #MelindaVasilije, 22, was discovered in her #Kitchener apartment.
“We did receive information that a person had a conversation with someone who they determined to be Ager Hasan,” Waterloo Regional Police Insp. Mike Haffner told Global News.
“Mr. Hasan did advise this person that he had plans to head towards Texas, possibly in an attempt to cross the border.”
Police say Hasan slipped across the Peace Bridge at Buffalo on the day of the slaying. They believe he’s driving a black Honda HR-V with either Ontario or Pennsylvania plates.
The Pennsylvania plate has a registration number EZV1654 and a Fraternal Order of Police emblem attached. He may also be using #Ontario licence plate BPKT509.
In the days following Vasilije’s murder, someone claiming to be Hasan posted a bizarre mea culpa on social news aggregation website Reddit where he confessed to the crime.
The couple had dated for about a year and the relationship was troubled. In addition to the second-degree murder charge, Hasan faces a charge of break and enter and two counts of assault stemming from an altercation at Vasilije’s apartment on April 3. Vasilije was not assaulted at that time.
Among his conditions were to not enter the Waterloo Region or contact Vasilije.
“Right now our investigators are working with Tennessee authorities to determine any surveillance video — anything that may be available to continue the investigation,” Haffner told Global.
