- UK Student Killed For His BlackBerry
  • UK Student Killed For His BlackBerry

    A British student, 17 year old Dogan Ismail, was stabbed and killed this past Sunday over his BlackBerry phone, and the murder suspect is 15 year old boy. Dohan (above), along with his little brother Orhan, had gone to retrieve his stolen BlackBerry when they were confronted by a group of four teenagers in a southeast London apartment block.

    Orhan seems to have recognized three of the students who had stolen the phone while on his way back from playing soccer. A text was received two days later saying "If you come here (the apartment block) we will give it back to you", according to Orhan. When Dogan and his brother arrived at the apartment, they were confronted by the thieves. Orhan told his family, 'He made to give back the phone, but instead brought a knife from behind his back and stabbed Dogan in the chest and walked calmly away."

    Dogan bled to death in his brother's arms.

    British police have named a 15 year old boy, Dawda Jallow, as main suspect in the murder and released a CCTV image of the teen 8 hours after the stabbing, riding a bus. Detective Chief Inspector Matt Bonner of the Homicide and Serious Crime Command, said: 'I am seeking help from the local community to locate Dawda Jallow. I appeal to anyone who knows of his whereabouts, or has any information that could assist us, to come forward." Another 15 year old boy and a 39 year old woman have been arrested in connection with the murder.

    This is not the first time in the UK a person has been killed over their BlackBerry. Back in April, 2010 a man walking home was attacked and had his BlackBerry stolen.
