HOUSTON - A woman whom Houston police described as an activist on behalf of Iranian women's civil rights was found shot dead at the wheel of her car after it crashed into a townhouse garage.
Houston police said the shooting happened around 12:30 a.m. Monday in a posh development near the Galleria.
According to investigators, someone walked up to the passenger's side of 30-year-old Gelareh Bagherzadeh's car and shot her in the head.
Bagherzadeh's body was found inside her running car, detectives said.
"When the officer arrived, the car's tires were still spinning," Officer J.C. Padilla said. "He had to reach in and turn off the motor."
Bagherzadeh's car was found at the back of the town home complex, and police said she had driven past her parents' home near the front of the complex.
"We don't know if she was being followed at the time," Sgt. Richard Bolton said.
Investigators said Bagherzadeh was studying genetic research at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and was an only child.
Officers said Bagherzadeh's ex-boyfriend was on the phone with her when he heard what may have been the crash and gunshots.
"He said she screamed for her life," said Lorena Lopez, one of Bagherzadeh's close friends. "He heard screeching and he assumed it was a car accident."
The ex-boyfriend was questioned, but is not considered a suspect.
Detectives said they want to speak with her current boyfriend and other friends to try to piece together what happened.
"She has no enemies," Bolton said. "She was a very caring and loving person."

I’m going with the 24 hour rule on this one, and that might get doubled. We just don’t know enough yet. It certainly bears watching though.
Move along now...
“She has no enemies,” Bolton said. “She was a very caring and loving person.”
If you are an Iranian women’s civil rights activist, you have enemies for the simple reason that you breathing.
Doesn’t surprise me a bit. All the Muslims live over there and no body goes to the Galleria anymore.

Nothing good happens after midnight.
Muslim males are the world cancer
You can bet the farm that neither CAIR nor the ACLU will be on the news demanding the killer be brought to justice.
No evidence of robbery, assault, or car-jacking. What do you suppose the motive was?
Even if the shooter is yelling Allah akubar, it will never be seen as a Muslim crime.
This is so sad that it could happen in America.
Well, that needs to CHANGE, now doesn’t it.
I smell smoke...and where there’s smoke...
If you are an Iranian womens civil rights activist, you have enemies for the simple reason that you breathing.

“”She has no enemies,” Bolton said...Bagherzadeh was part of Sabaz Houston, a local Iranian organization that supports the green movement against the current Iranian government. “
She had plenty of enemies...the only question is whether she knew it.
Geez. Close the borders already you idiots. Starting to feel like a Roman during the beginning of the Dark Ages.
Like me, you notice the time of this incident.
Also, she was on the phone to her exboyfriend, at that hour of the night.

NEW YORK Federal prosecutors Thursday took steps to seize four U.S. mosques, including one in HOUSTON, and a Fifth Avenue skyscraper owned by a nonprofit Muslim organization long suspected of being secretly controlled by the IRANIAN government.
“For two decades, the Alavi Foundation’s affairs have been directed by various Iranian officials, including Iranian ambassadors to the United Nations, in violation of a series of American laws,” U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in a statement. .............
