Shockwaves across Dubai as woman is stabbed after leaving gym at Ibn Battuta mall…
A woman whose body was found at one of the city’s busiest malls had been stabbed several times after leaving a gym, according to a report from today’s The National.
The 40-year-old woman, from Mauritius, had been due to meet a friend at Ibn Battuta Mall on Friday. After she failed to turn up, a search of the car park later in the day found her body next to a car.
The deputy head of Dubai Police, Khamis Muttar al Mazeina, said: “The victim set up a meeting with a friend of hers but when her friend couldn’t find her she called the victim’s husband and they went looking for her.”
The friend, an American woman who was visiting from abroad, and the husband, a Dutchman, conducted a thorough search of the mall before they found her body. She was still dressed in gym clothes. Police say the killing took place at around 2.15pm on Friday.

This is absolutely outrageous. I hope the police are doing what they can to find this murderer. And if the murderer is reading this, well don't think that you being a dangerous and filthy person will scare other women from going to the gym. YOu can pretty much rot in your own skin for all we care. We will keep on living and you will be caught!
