I originally posted about Abdullah Alkadi here. He was the 23-year-old student from Cal State-Northridge who went missing after selling his car on craigslist. I was hoping that he would be found alive but sadly that is not the case.

Police say that Abdullah was stabbed to death by 28-year-old Agustin Rosendo Fernandez of Long Beach. Fernandez is said to have killed him in order to steal the car. Fernandez was allegedly in possession of the car at the time of his arrest.

My prayers and condolences go out to the friends and family of Abdullah Alkadi.

I’ll post more as additional details become available and as time allows.

UPDATE 6/11/2016: Fernandez has been convicted of first-degree murder and is scheduled to be sentenced to LWOP in August.

UPDATE 8/30/2016: Earlier this month, Fernandez was sentenced to life without parole.
