Woman visits fiance’s grave after he was fatally shot
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — On what would’ve been her wedding weekend, a 22-year-old woman visited her fiance’s grave after police say he was fatally shot while trying to sell a gaming system in Tennessee.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports Sara Baluch put on her wedding dress and a white tulle veil Sunday. But instead of walking down the aisle, she walked up a rain-saturated hill to 24-year-old Mohammad Sharifi’s gravesite in the outskirts of Nashville.
Police say Sharifi was fatally shot in an apartment complex parking lot Feb. 19. Twenty-year-old D’Marcus White was charged in the death that happened weeks before Sharifi’s wedding.
At the cemetery, family members comforted Sara, recited prayers and read from the Quran. Toward the end, Sara’s mother draped black veil over her daughter’s head, exchanging it for the white wedding veil.
