If you don’t remember the story of Dane Abdool is a holdover from the old News of Doom days. Abdool was convicted and sentenced to death for setting his then girlfriend, Amelia Sookdeo, on fire killing her.
His mom, 47-year-old Nazreen Mohammed, admitted to embezzling from financial institutions she worked for in order to help pay for her son’s legal defense. Mohammed believes that her son is innocent even though it was a very open and shut case. Mohammed would drain the accounts of the elderly and the deceased in order to try to get her murdering psychopath of a son released.
Last week she was sentenced to 5 years in federal prison and 3 years probation.
I never understood why families stick together like this when one of their members is obviously guilty. If a member of my family wrapped a 17-year-old girl in duct tape, doused her in gasoline, threw her in a ditch and set her on fire I would probably be the first person calling for their execution.
Back when I was running a site called News of Doom one of the more disturbing and controversial stories I posted was about Dane Abdool from Florida. He was arrested, convicted and sentenced to death for killing his 17-year-old girlfriend Amelia Sookdeo by setting her on fire in a ditch.
When I first posted the story Abdool’s family posted a number of comments about how he was innocent and how the victim ‘had it coming’.
It turns out that criminality runs in the family as Abdool’s mom, 47-year-old Nazreen Mohammed, has just pleaded guilty to embezzling $83K from the bank she worked at.
She’s looking at 60 years behind bars. Family photos will now be interesting with all that jumpsuit orange in them.
Bank Embezzlement Linked To Death Row Inmate:
I love the word embezzlement. It’s a funny word. However what’s not funny is Dane Abdool. Some of you old timers may remember the original post about Dane Abdool. Then 20-year-old Abdool was arrested for killing his 17-year-old girlfriend Amelia Sookdeo by setting her on fire. That post unleashed a torrent of comments from Abdool supporters claiming that he was innocent. Yeah, Amelia must have spontaneously combusted.
Anyway Abdool must have been so innocent that he was not only convicted he was also sentenced to death.
Now criminal activity may run in the family because his mom, Nazreen Mohammed, is not only being accused of stealing money from a dead woman’s bank account but she’s also been accused of embezzling $80K from a credit union in order to fund her son’s appeal.
Now they may have matching jumpsuits in the next family portrait.
