Sania Khan, a South-Asian woman from Chicago who used to document events reflecting her abusive marriage and talked about her experience of divorce, was murdered by her ex-husband.
Her ex-husband named Raheel Ahmed killed her and then committed suicide by shooting himself.
The family of the man had reported him missing from the Atlanta suburb.
Chicago police was told that Raheel Ahmed, 36, and his wife, 29-year-old Sania Khan, were “going through a divorce,” according to the media reports.
He was depressed and travelled to her place “to salvage the marriage.” Once inside the condo, the officers found Khan, 29, unresponsive near the door with a gunshot wound to the back of the head and blood on her face. Ahmad was discovered in a bedroom with a head injury. A handgun was found in his hand and a suicide note was discovered nearby, according to the report.
Khan was pronounced dead at the scene according to Chicago police and the medical examiner’s office. Ahmad was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he also died.
Khan was a Pakistani-American professional photographer who moved to Chicago from Chattanooga in June 2021.
Khan also posted about her marital and personal struggles on TikTok.
