Po­lice: Con­tact with mur­der sus­pect made

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - ANAM LATIF WATER­LOO RE­GION — Water­loo Re­gion Record

Po­lice have made con­tact with a Hamil­ton man who fled to the U.S. af­ter the stab­bing death of a Kitch­ener woman last month.

Water­loo Re­gional Po­lice say they were i n con­tact with Ager Mohsin Hasan as re­cently as Wed­nes­day night, but his where­abouts south of the bor­der are still un­known.

Hasan, 24, faces a sec­ond-de­gree mur­der charge in con­nec­tion with 22-year-old Melinda Vasil­ije’s death on April 28. He fled that same day.

Insp. Mike Haffner said the con­ver­sa­tion be­tween in­ves­ti­ga­tors and Hasan hap­pened through a “me­dia plat­form.” They asked him to turn him­self in to lo­cal law en­force­ment. Haffner would not go into de­tails about what Hasan told po­lice. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­mains at a “stand­still” as po­lice con­tinue to lo­cate him.

“We need him to turn him­self in,” Haffner said.

Vasil­ije was found dead in her apart­ment on April 28. She died of mul­ti­ple stab wounds.

Vasil­ije and Hasan had been in a re­la­tion­ship for about a year.

Hasan’s last known where­abouts were i n Erie County, Penn., on April 28 where a man match­ing his de­scrip­tion was seen switch­ing li­cence plates in a Wal­mart park­ing lot.
