Crime, News

On Sunday December 16, 2012 at 2:23 am, Kalamazoo Public Safety responded to an address in the 2200 block of Lakeway Avenue regarding a report of a domestic disturbance. When officers arrived at the home, the home was found to be secure and there weren’t any sounds coming from within the home.  Investigating officers observed a person motionless on the floor in the home which prompted officers to force entry into the residence.

Officers located Andrea Lyn Rachdi, a 29 year old female and Nawfal Rachdi, a 25 year old male dead from what has been ruled a homicide/suicide. Autopsy results indicate that Nawfal used an edged weapon to take the life of Andrea, and then used an edged weapon to take his own life.  A kitchen knife that was approximately 8” was found beside the couple. The couple’s children were with relatives at the time of the incident and no one else was inside the home.

Anyone with information concerning this incident is asked to contact Kalamazoo Public Safety at (269) 337-8994, or Silent Observer at (269)343-2100 or www.kalamazoosilentobserver.com.
