Second crime scene established after father stabbed to death while investigating power cut

Detectives investigating the murder of a father who was stabbed to death in the front yard of his Queensland home have established a secondary crime scene.

Abdul Mohammed was fatally attacked when he went outside of his Kuraby home in Brisbane just after midnight last October to investigate a power outage.

The 35-year-old was found dead in the front yard of the home with a number of significant stab wounds a short time later.


Following investigations and a public appeal for information, a second crime scene was set up at an address on Didcot Street in Kuraby yesterday.

“The scene is expected to be in police possession for several days to permit forensic officers to conduct a thorough examination of the dwelling and surrounds,” Qld police said in a statement.

A $250,000 reward remains in place for information which leads to the apprehension and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the death of Mr Mohammed.

An appropriate indemnity from prosecution will also be recommended for any accomplice, not being the person who actually committed the crime, who first gives such information.

Mr Mohammad’s four young children and wife were asleep inside the home at the time of the attack.
