Initially Angesom and his family claimed Angesom was at work in the early morning of March 1, 2006 to cover up the fact that he was at Abraham’s house participating in Abraham’s murder. During the preliminary hearing, however, Angesom changed his story and he deliberately lied on the witness stand while he was under oath, saying that he was at a bar in San Francisco at the time of Abraham’s death. He changed his account because he knew investigators would find out that he was not at work. During the trial, he came up with a different story and he deliberately testified falsely under oath that he was at a club that played hip-hop music, drinking beer and partying there. Furthermore, he testified that he had been to that particular club over 100 times in the past. He said the club was located on California street around the Immigration office. Click here.

If Angesom had been to that club as often as he claimed, then he should know where it is located. The truth is, there was no club on California street around the Immigration office on March 1, 2006, and there is no club at all on that location right now. Click here. Thus, it’s obvious that Angesom was not at a nightclub on California street as he stated under oath. So he committed perjury when he deliberately testified falsely under oath that he was at a nightclub on California street at the time of Abraham’s death.

Since the prosecutor knew Angesom lied about being at a non-existent club on California street, she fabricated the story that he was at a strip club called Roaring 20s on Broadway, and she put Inspector Beal on the witness stand to testify falsely under oath that Angesom was there at the time of Abraham’s death.

If Angesom had been at roaring 20s strip club, he could not have been drinking beer as he testified he had been doing because Roaring 20s did not, and still does not serve alcohol at all. Click here. So his own testimony tells you unequivocally that he was not at Roaring 20s strip club at the time of Abraham’s death. Besides, he testified that he was at a hip-hop nightclub on California street. He did not say that he was at a strip club on Broadway. If he was at a strip club, he would have said that he was at a strip club.Click here. So it’s obvious that the prosecutor and her inspector lied when they claimed Angesom was at Roaring 20s strip club at the time of Abraham's death. They lied to cover up Abraham's murder in order to obtain a conviction and advance their career. What they did is a crime because covering up murder is a crime. It is a felony.

Angesom’s testimony clearly tells you that he was not where he claimed he was at the time of Abraham’s death. Clearly there are numerous holes in the prosecutor’s account about Angesom’s where abouts at the time of Abraham’s death. But why falsify testimony if Angesom has nothing to hide; if he is not guilty of something?

The bottom line is, at the time of Abraham’s death Angesom was not at work; he was not at a bar; he was not at a nightclub; he was not at a strip club. He was at Abraham’s house participating in Abraham’s murder.

During the trial, the Mehari brothers' testimony about Abraham’s death indicate that they had a hand in Abraham’s death. For instance, Angesom testified that for someone not to grieve the death of a close person in our culture would be a slap in the face, that person must be inhuman. Well his own words prove that he is inhuman because he was repeatedly calling Interactive Male Service and he was having fun before Abraham’s body was laid to rest. He was not grieving because he and his family murdered Abraham and Abraham’s death meant nothing to him. Click here 1, 2.

Hailu Gtsadek, a professional Amharic translator and expert witness, testified under oath that he heard someone whispering "Gelagliw" to Winta during her audio-recorded 911 call. This is of great concern because Winta told the investigators that she was alone with Abraham and Isaac when she made the 911 call. This is clear evidence that Winta lied to investigators during their investigation of Abraham’s death. The voice whispering "Gelagliw" is one of the twins voice. It’s either Merhawi or Angesom’s voice.

Still of great concern is the meaning of "Gelagliw" and what it indicates about how events unfolded the night Abraham died. Mr. Gtsadek confirmed that "Gelagliw" means to separate people who are fighting, to relieve someone who is in distress; that is to commit a mercy killing, or to finish someone off. During the trial, the prosecutor acknowledged that someone whispered "Gelagliw" to Winta during her 911 call. She further conceded that Winta Killed Abraham because he was in distress and suffering.

Abraham was in excellent physical shape up to the day he died. He was strong, vigorous, fit and healthy. Indeed Dr. Rogers who was in charge of Abraham’s autopsy stated that all of Abraham’s vital organs were healthy and did not contribute to his death. And he classified Abraham’s death as undetermined. Clearly Winta was not performing a mercy killing on a long-suffering husband or comatose spouse. So what the prosecutor conceded Winta did was an act of homicide, not an act of mercy killing. Even if it had been a mercy killing, it would have been homicide because mercy killing or enthanasia is illegal in California. It is murder, pure and simple. This is clear evidence that Winta murdered Abraham with the aid of her brothers.

According to Mr. Gtsadek's testimony the word "Gelagliw" comes from the third person. So it is obvious that at least one of Winta’s brothers was there with her. And I know for sure the voice is either Merhawi or Angesom’s voice. But why did Winta lie to the investigators by saying no one was at her house except Abraham and Isaac when she made 911 call? She lied because she had something to hide. She lied to hide the fact that she and her brothers murdered Abraham. Click here.

Sincerely,                                                            Asmerom T. Gebreselassie
