Possible scenario, christian man invites three muslims over (who happen to drink beer) with the intention to convert them, or at least the discussion turned to religion, and they went ape on him. On the other hand there was a document found underneath the dead man with one of the perp’s name on it, so it’s anybody’s guess.
The detectives who arrived found the apartment in disarray, with empty beer cans on the counter and clothes and trash strewn about. On the floor near Akoa’s head was a Bible splattered in blood. Beneath his body was an official court document with Mohamed’s name on it. On the kitchen counter was a purse with contents inside with the name of Jennifer Wilson on them, Giesecke stated.
Man found dead in Portland apartment had been beaten, kicked to death
A judge unseals an affidavit filed by a Portland detective that reveals how Freddy Akoa, 49, was killed in his Cumberland Avenue apartment.
Freddy Akoa, the Portland man found dead in his Cumberland Avenue apartment this month, had been beaten, kicked and bashed in the head with furniture by his drinking companions during an assault that went on for hours.
Akoa, 49, had 22 rib fractures from the savage attack, cuts and bruises all over his head and torso, and a lacerated liver when his accused killers left him on his living room floor in Apartment 18 at 457 Cumberland Ave. on the morning of Aug. 10.
Those details were made public for the first time Monday when a judge at the Cumberland County Courthouse unsealed an affidavit filed by Portland police Detective Christopher Giesecke to obtain an arrest warrant for three men accused in the killing.
The affidavit had been sealed at a prosecutor’s request for one week after three accused killers appeared in court, each on a charge of murder by depraved indifference. The three – Abil Teshome, 23, Osman Sheikh, 31, and Mohamud Mohamed, 36 – are each being held without bail at the Cumberland County Jail.
The affidavit details how police first learned of Akoa’s death on Aug. 11, and how clues left in the apartment and video surveillance camera recordings quickly led detectives to interview a witness and take the three suspects into custody.
But the document gives no indication of a motive for the men accused in the slaying, who were seen in surveillance footage entering the apartment building with Akoa and a woman on Aug. 9 at 4:40 p.m.
Akoa’s mother, Jeannie Mendomo, became concerned after she couldn’t reach her son by phone and no one answered the door at his apartment. She called the building’s management company to check on him. Two of the company’s representatives used a key to go in the apartment after noon on Aug. 11 and found him dead on the floor with a swollen and bloodied face, Giesecke wrote in the affidavit.
