Mohmoud Hassenen Aboras has not explained to his youngest daughter why her oldest sister has not been seen since Sunday.

At the age of three, she is too young to grasp the tragedy that befell their family in the early morning hours of last Sunday.

“Where is Nabra?” she continues to ask, Mohmoud said during an emotional interview.

Nabra, Mohmoud’s eldest child, was with a group of more than a dozen teens as they returned to a northern Virginia mosque following a Ramadan pre-fast meal at a nearby fast-food restaurant.

An altercation broke out between one of the teens and a motorist police have identified as Darwin Martinez Torres. As the dispute escalated, Martinez Torres, 22, drove up on to the curb, forcing the group of teens to scatter.

He then got out of his car with a bat.

What happened next is the stuff of nightmares for any parent.

Nabra, 17, was allegedly assaulted with the bat, thrown into the vehicle and taken to a second location where she was assaulted again before being thrown in a pond.

Her body would be discovered there by police the following afternoon.
