Burned Georgia Tech student dies from injuries

The Georgia Tech graduate student burned over 90 percent of his body last month died Thursday, the Institute said.

Saamer Akhshabi was burned in a Feb. 4 explosion inside his apartment, where investigators found a suspected Molotov cocktail and several plastic bottles filled with gasoline and kerosene. Akhshabi, 26, was transported in critical condition to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he died early Thursday, Georgia Tech shared with the campus.

"We have worked closely with other law enforcement agencies during the investigation of this tragic incident," Robert Connolly, interim police chief for Georgia Tech, said in an emailed statement. "The FBI has relayed that, to date, they have not developed any information or evidence indicating criminal intent in this investigation."

Investigators determined that Akhshabi was not a threat to the Georgia Tech community, Connolly said. But no information was released regarding why Akhshabi had the explosive materials.

Akhshabi was studying in the College of Computing at Tech, where he had attended since 2009, according to his web page. He was scheduled to graduate in May. Prior to moving to Atlanta, Akhshabi completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Tehran in Iran, his native country.

Sorry, but I just can not generate even a microgram of sympathy for the chump.

The FBI will issue their blanket statement that terrorism was not involved.

Those heir to 1,400 years of first cousin incest are ill advised to play with fire.

The task may be beyond their IQ capabilities.

Yes, incest will do that.

Please explain to me any logical reason to have bottles of gasoline and kerosene in your apartment. I don’t get law enforcement anymore.

My daughter is a student at georgia tech and I keep thinking that his intent was to harm her (not specifically, but as a person on campus) as he accidentally harmed himself — and that thought makes me so sick to my stomach.

I think it was somewhat tragic that he only lingered for a month or so. In a fair world, he would have enjoyed many more months of debridement...

So, why was he working with Molotov Cocktails at the time of the aforesaid "tragic accident?"

“investigation of this tragic incident”

Wait. What? Tragic incident? Isn’t an arsonist being burned to death by mishandling his own Molotov Cocktails without harming anyone else what one would call “poetic justice”?

Well, accidents happen, but anyone who can't put together a Molotov cocktail without self-immolation probably is mostly a threat to themselves.

At least he wasn't making TATP...

They haven't been "law enforcement" for a long time: they're "population management" officers.

They just meant that he was no threat to the Georgia Tech community...... aside from that terrorist bomb stuff.

The main question is the directions from the homeland instruct the usage of plastic bottles? If so, it needs to be passed worldwide thru the muzzie terrorist network.

So they must have a logical explanation of why this guy was keeping gasoline in his apartment and using it to make bombs.

I gotta tell ya...I'm pretty pleased with his recipe:

Sear jihadi over high heat for three minutes.

Let simmer for one month.

I should think it would be difficult to make an effective Molotov cocktail with a plastic bottle of gasoline. But our boy Saamer succeeded!! Must be those great advances made by Muslim culture we keep hearing about.

Good to know, good to know. Would that POV also apply to homemade RPGs, claymores and armor breaching devices? I like this new benefit-of-the-doubt FBI.
