7 year old Girl Shot By Her Dad Before He Turned The Gun On Himself
Mary Shipstone was shot in the head by her father as she stood on her own doorstep next to her mother, clutching a new violin, after she returned from school in September last year. She was taken to King’s College Hospital, London, but later died of her injuries.
According to Daily Mirror, her father, Yasser Alromisse, 46, was hidden in the rear of a silver Toyota on the drive by the house, in Northiam, near Rye, East Sussex, when he fired the shot.
The car windows were tinted and he had created a blind from bin bags to shield himself. His body was later found in a pool of blood in the rear of the car, where he had shot himself in the head.
Lyndsey, Mary’s mother who had recently moved into a safe house in the area after domestic violence caused her to separate from her husband because she did not want be traced by Alromisse following the collapse of their marriage, told the inquest the killing was an “act of revenge”.
“Why did he kill Mary? I don’t think I will ever really know that.” she said.”He wanted to kill himself and for some reason he thought she shouldn’t live without him. It was an act of revenge really. It has got to be. If he really loved her, he never would have murdered her. I was the one he hated the most.”
The court heard he hired private detective Paul Parton in May 2014 to try and track her down but Mr Parton was unable to locate Lyndsey and later withdrew his services because of his concerns over Alromisse’s motives.
Coroner Alan Craze said it was not clear how Alromisse eventually found the address. He described the murder as a “thoroughly despicable act of violence. It was not in any way spontaneous. It was pre-meditated over a long period of time.”
