San Diego Police reached out to the public Thursday for help in locating a City Heights man who has been at large since his wife was found slain in their apartment.
Investigators believe 45-year-old Abdiaziz Kerow murdered his wife, 36-year-old Muna Salad Kuri, then fled the area, according to police.
Kuri’s sister discovered the victim’s bloodied body in a bed at the couple’s rental residence in the 4000 block of Van Dyke Avenue shortly before 9 a.m. Monday.
Kuri, whose most recent contact with her family had been on Saturday, had suffered suspicious wounds to her upper body, Lt. Anthony Dupree said.
Police have not disclosed a suspected motive in the slaying. Kuri was well-known in the local Somali community and ran a daycare center.
Kerow is described as a 5-foot-9 black man weighing around 145 pounds. He is believed to be driving a white Ford Explorer SUV with California license plate 8CVK537.
Anyone with information about Kerow’s whereabouts is asked to call the homicide unit at (619) 531-2293 or San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
