Pakistani Man Stabs Wife and 2-Year-Old Daughter to Death in Front of Son in the US

A heart-wrenching incident unfolded in Brentwood, Long Island, where a 31-year-old man, Zanoor Jaffari, has been accused of brutally stabbing his wife, Misbah Batool (33), and their 2-year-old daughter, Iazia Zanoor, to death in their family home. The shocking part is that their 5-year-old son was present during this dreadful act.

Responding to a distress call on Sunday around 4:40 p.m., Suffolk County Police discovered the lifeless bodies of Misbah and Iazia at their new home on Jefferson Avenue. Despite their efforts, both victims succumbed to their injuries at South Shore University Hospital.

The couple’s older child, a 5-year-old boy, thankfully remained unharmed during the attack. He is currently under the care of relatives after his father’s arrest.

Zanoor Jaffari, who pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder, was taken into custody following the gruesome discovery. He was initially hospitalized due to signs of a possible overdose before being held at the Suffolk County Police Department’s Third Precinct in Bay Shore overnight.

Investigators are still trying to determine the motive behind this shocking double homicide. Prior to this incident, there were no records of domestic violence calls at the family’s residence. However, prosecutors claim that Jaffari had a history of abusing his wife before they moved to Long Island.

Jaffari’s defense attorney, Lawrence Carra, has expressed disbelief at the tragedy, stating that the accused loved his wife and interacted with their children affectionately. The inexplicable events have left everyone baffled and devastated.

Authorities are urging the public to respect the privacy of the victims’ family during this difficult time. Suffolk County Police Chief of Detectives, John Rowan, shared his condolences and asked for thoughts and prayers for the grieving family.

The Long Island community is in shock and mourning as they try to come to terms with this heartbreaking loss. This unspeakable tragedy serves as a stark reminder of the importance of addressing domestic violence and supporting those in need.
