Police hope tipster in UAB student’s death will call again
BIRMINGHAM (AP) — Police probing the shooting death of a 20-year-old UAB student hope an anonymous tipster will call them again.
The tipster called just days after the Oct. 8 slaying of Kayla Fanaei.
The UAB Emergency Management Team issued an e-mail Wednesday night to more than 25,000 people with campus e-mail accounts asking the caller to notify Birmingham homicide Sgt. Cory Hardiman.
“Within days of Ms. Fanaei’s murder, an anonymous caller contacted the Birmingham police with information, and the police need to speak to that person again,” the alert read. “Callers can remain anonymous, . . . .”
Fanaei, a junior majoring in psychology, was found dead about 1 a.m. Oct. 8 in the driver’s seat of her convertible.
