Jesus Take The Wheel: Doctor Kills Pregnant Woman With H-Ron Overdose

So sad.

Doctor Kills Pregnant Woman With H-Ron Overdose

A doctor that kills people…smh.

According to The Huffington Post

The personal ads that Dr. Ali Salim placed on Craigslist – and police say he posted hundreds of them – made one thing clear: He wanted “no drama.”

He didn’t always get his wish.

One woman told police she was accosted at Salim’s house. Another said she was sexually assaulted. Another woman left after she said Salim insisted she pose in her underwear while he painted the digestive system on her abdomen.

The final drama, police and prosecutors say, occurred July 31 when Deanna Ballman, nine months pregnant with two young children at home, disappeared after answering one of Salim’s ads. Ballman’s body was found the next day in the backseat of her car on a country road a few miles from Salim’s house.

After a six-month investigation, Salim was arrested in February and charged with kidnapping, forced sex and killing Ballman by injecting her with h-ron, as well as killing her unborn child, to be named Mabel Lilly.

Salim has pleaded not guilty and is on house arrest on $1 million bond. His trial is scheduled for Sept. 3.

Investigators say only that Deanna Ballman answered a personal ad. A cursory review of Craigslist finds Salim was not alone in placing such ads, dozens of which, many of them suggestive, abound for the Columbus area. In one, on May 14, a married man said he was looking for a “discreet relationship.” Another, the same day, was seeking “a woman who is pregnant and horny as hell.”

Salim’s lawyer goes a step farther and bluntly calls Ballman an “unfortunate victim” who died as a result of prostituting herself to feed a drug habit.

“Regrettably, she caused her own demise and Dr. Salim had nothing to do with it,” said attorney Sam Shamansky.

The forced sex charge against Salim alleges he assaulted her knowing her ability to resist “was substantially impaired.” Capt. Kevin Savage of the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office says there’s no evidence Ballman was a drug addict. But, like the prosecutor, he hints that Ballman’s reasons for going to Salim’s home have yet to come out.

“I don’t think she knew she was going to be overdosed with heroin and subsequently die, but I think she knew what she was responding to,” Savage said.

He needs his azz thrown underneath the jail.
