Suspect freed from jail due to COVID kills accuser

Authorities in Virginia are reporting that a man who was recently released from prison due to coronavirus concerns reportedly tracked down and killed a woman who accused him of rape.

According to the report, 33-year-old Ibrahim E. Bousichi was indicted last year on several charges including rape, strangulation, and abduction. He was eventually released from prison on a $25,000 bond after his attorneys argued that keeping Bousichi in jail during the pandemic was inhumane.

Judge Nolan Dawkins agreed to the release under the condition that if Bousichi made bail, he could only leave his home to meet with his lawyers and pretrial service officials.

In July, authorities located the body of Bousichi’s accuser and traced the crime back to him.

Authorities located Bousichi driving in Prince George County on Wednesday and pursued him. Bousichi eventually crashed his vehicle and then shot himself.

He was then taken to an area hospital where as of Thursday he was listed in grave condition.

The victim was not identified in the report, however, authorities did report that she was a native of Venezuela who had no family in the US.
