Killer and sex partner are different, defense suggests in Ali murder trial

Lawyer raises question of whether actions were related to Ibrahim Ali’s trial over 2017 death of B.C. teen





A defense lawyer in the murder trial of Ibrahim Ali in British Columbia Supreme Court has advanced the theory that the person who had sex with the alleged murder victim may not be the one who killed the teenager.

Kevin McCullough finished cross-examining forensic biologist Christine Crossman, focusing on the fact that Ali’s genetic profile only matched samples found in the victim’s vaginal and anal areas.

McCullough questioned investigators’ decision not to test some evidence that could establish another suspect in the case, asking Crossman to confirm whether she had any idea whether the stains found on the girl’s clothing contained DNA.

The body of the 13-year-old girl, who cannot be named due to a publication ban, was found in Central Park in Burnaby, British Columbia, in July 2017.

McCullough asked Crossman if she or the police had noted the importance of establishing beyond a reasonable doubt the time of death and time of sexual contact in this case, to which Crossman responded that DNA evidence could not be used to establish such time limits.

Crown prosecutors said earlier in the trial that evidence would show Ali sexually assaulted the girl in a random killing.

Ali has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder.
