Police in Germany, are looking for a man who allegedly followed his wife’s orders to kill their daughter.

The 20-year-old woman from Syria fled to Germany, after being gang raped by 3 men.

Police believe that she was murdered in an alleged honor killing that was ordered by her own mother.

Police are looking for the 20-year-old victim’s father and brother, who they believe killed the woman identified as Rokstan M., because her family accused her of bringing shame to them through the sexual assault.

Shortly before her death, Rokstan M. wrote in her WhatsApp profile, “I am awaiting death. However, I am too young to die.”

Rokstan lived in Germany for two years, before she was killed.

Author Mark Kruger, who hired Rokstan to translate interviews with refugees for a book, said that Rokstan told him about her terrible fate.

She said that she was kidnapped and raped by 3 men, and when she told her mother about the incident, her family considered her unclean. Her mother and brothers began mistreating her and said that she “deserves to die.”

Police are searching for the father and brother of Rokstan, but they believe that the men already fled Germany and may be in Turkey or Syria.

Kruger said that the victim told him that her mother once tried to hire a hit man to kill her. He believes that the mother ordered the family to kill her daughter.
