Events of Criminal Case
Killer and Motives
The killer turned out to be his girlfriend, Izzah Rashid.
Izzah confessed, admitting to helping Afif kidnap Katherine. She recounted how she and Afif were approached and paid to kidnap Katherine and due to them needing money to flee the Sahara, they accepted the offer. The couple were soon given all the resources they would need to carry out the kidnapping, including the oil (to use as a method of subduing Katherine) and the cyanide pills (in case they got caught). A while after successfully pulling off the kidnapping and transporting Katherine to the mastermind of the plot, Afif started to grow guilty and he planned to tell the police everything as a way to repent. Scared of Afif speaking about her involvement, she confronted her lover and forced the cyanide pills down his throat to silence him. Izzah then started crying, speaking about how much she regretted it. Suddenly, in one quick motion, a tearful Izzah pulled out another cyanide pill and before the team could do anything, she bit into it and started foaming at the mouth. She then passed away, closing another lead into the investigation.
