Mia Ayliffe-Chung: Smail Ayad, Allahu Akbar and mental illness

by | 25th, August 2016

The Townsville Bulletin has more on the alleged murder of Mia Ayliffe-Chung. We don’t why she was killed.  We may never know, let alone understand the alleged killer motives. It’s alleged yelled Allahu Akbar as she struck. One line is that he did this because he might be mentally ill.

Smail Ayad, 29, had fawned over Mia Ayliffe-Chung, 21, for several days, telling other backpackers at the Home Hill hostel the pair were deeply in love and married … Furious at the unrequited love, he allegedly stabbed Ms Ayliffe-Chung multiple times while screaming “Allahu Akbar”, leaving her to die on the floor of her Shelley’s Backpackers room.

Yesterday afternoon as police transferred Ayad from hospital to the watchhouse, he allegedly bashed two police officers, after they had to pull over on Woolcock St as he was lashing out in the back of the police paddy wagon. Both officers were hospitalised.

Police were forced to use capsicum spray on Ayad to subdue him and the Bulletin understands it took seven officers to get Ayad into a padded cell, as he continued to scream “Allahu Akbar”.
