The brother of the man who likely murdered his daughter before taking his own life tells FOX40 that his brother, Mourad “Moni” Samaan, was the victim of a broken family court system.
Nabil Samaan, a lawyer and father, claims his brother’s ex-wife waged a brutal custody battle that pushed Mourad over the edge. According to court records provided to us by Nabil, Mourad’s ex-wife is Marcia Fay, a California Deputy Attorney General.
“In every battle there’s an end, and this is the end. You can justify or try to argue that Moni wasn’t a good father, and that’s just denying the facts. The facts that he was an exceptional father,” Nabil Samaan said Sunday.
I’m going to go ahead and say that murdering your child pretty much revokes your “good father” card. And you know who’s a victim? A little girl whose daddy kills her. You know who’s not a victim? A dude who was pissed off because he didn’t get exactly what he wanted from the court system.
Nabil says that Mourad and his ex-wife couldn’t even agree on a name for their daughter. The Samaan’s referred to the little girl as Layla, and the Fay’s referred to her as Madeline.
Last week, the FBI issued an Amber Alert for Madeline Layla Samaan-Fay. Agents say her father Mourad was supposed to return her to her mother but did not. On Saturday, the FBI discovered the bodies of the little girl and her father in an SUV parked in El Dorado County near some land the Samaan family owns.
“I think he did the right thing. I’m proud of my brother and now he’s in a better place. He’s at peace. His daughter’s at peace. She’ll have one name now, and we can move on. And hopefully the court will learn a little thing about justice,” Nabil said.
FOX40 asked if that’s how he really felt, and he reiterated his point.
“I think justice was done as Moni saw it, and as I see it, frankly. I think under the circumstances, justice was done.”
A little girl was murdered because her father would rather she died than compromise on her name. That’s not justice. That’s evil.
Now let’s start the countdown until this guy becomes an MRA hero.
