Name: Omar Omran.
Died: July 10, 2017.
Age at death: 3.
Cause of death: Murder (Stabbed).
Location: Kimmage, Dublin, Ireland.
Omar’s father remembers him as an intelligent boy who had never met a stranger. When anyone said “Hello” to him, Omar would say “hello” back. Omar loved the neighbors’ dogs. The neighbors remember his big brown eyes and his lively chatter.
His mother was a doctor from Iraq who had moved to England around the time Omar was born. His father, separated from his mother, still lived in Iraq.
Omar was stabbed to death by his mother.
Neighbors left flowers, notes, and toys outside his apartment building. One neighbor’s note says that Omar used to throw his toys over his balcony, and his neighbor used to bring them back to him. Another note said simply, “Why???? R.I.P”.
Omar’s mother had been depressed because of the autism diagnosis. She admitted to stabbing the boy, but claimed rather vaguely that “it was not me, it was the power.” At trial, she was declared not guilty by reason of insanity and hospitalized.
