Baltimore County Police have identified the suspect who is responsible for the homicide in Catonsville yesterday as 18-year-old Muhammad Hasnet Shakeelabassi. He is the victim’s son and lived in the home.

Just before noon yesterday, police responded to a home in the 1000 block of Southridge Road 21228 for a call coded as a cardiac arrest. When they arrived at the scene, they found the victim, 50-year-old Shakeel Ahmed Abbasi suffering from traumatic injuries. He was declared deceased at the scene.

Detectives were able to find evidence of stab wounds and bludgeoning. An autopsy will be conducted today to determine an official cause and manner of death.

The initial investigation into the incident has indicated that the victim’s wife received a call from a relative in New Jersey asking her to check on the victim. The relative in New Jersey has received a text message from Muhammad Hasnet Shakeelabbasi asking them to check on the victim. When the victim’s wife went to check on him, she found him not moving and covered with blood so she called 911. The call was dispatched as a cardiac arrest because of how dispatch software coded the call.

Shakeelabassi had been home earlier in the day but was now missing along with the victim’s vehicle, a Honda van. Shakeelabassi was located at approximately 5:30 p.m. along with the victim’s van at a rest stop on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Bowmansville, Pennsylvania.
