Mariam Abdulrab Murder
Mariam Abdulrab‘s body was found shortly before 10 a.m. near Lakewood Avenue and Terrace Way in the Lakewood Heights neighbourhood.
Abdulrab’s death is the 15th killing of a woman in Atlanta this year and the 92nd homicide overall. Many instantly connected her slaying with the gruesome murder of Katie Janness in Piedmont Park less than three weeks earlier. Jenness, also a bartender, was brutally attacked late at night while walking her dog.
Police have identified the person of interest to be Brinkley of Griffin, following a high-speed chase in Griffin early Friday afternoon.
Investigators confirmed that Brinkley was wanted as a person of interest in connection to the kidnapping and murder of Mariam Abdulrab. There are no charges filed at this time, police said.
The investigation is ongoing.
Once he is treated, Brinkley will continue to be held on traffic charges, the GSP said. According to Atlanta police, no charges have been filed against Brinkley related to Abdulrab’s kidnapping and death. The State Patrol will handle his traffic charges.
In interviews with the AJC and social media, those who knew Abdulrab described her as warm, kind, and thoughtful. Two of the bars where she worked will shut down for the weekend as their employees try to cope with her death.
“Mariam was a living jewel. She shone,” said Grant Henry, owner of quirky Edgewood bar Church, where Abdulrab sometimes worked.
