Tulane law students, Wajih Mazloum, Sara LaMont dead in murder suicide

Tulane University is still shell shocked after the murder-suicide of a law student and his girlfriend. Wajih Mazloum murder Sara LaMont and them himself, leaving more questions that answers.

According to New Orleans police, LaMont’s bright future in law was wiped out sometime over the weekend, when she was fatally shot by Mazloum at his apartment. His roommate called police after finding the couple’s bodies Sunday morning.

Police confirmed that a handgun was found next to Mazloum, 28.

The handgun had been purchased at a local gun show within the last month, but the source, added that they were not concerned – never seeing the couple fight.

David Meyer, dean of the law school, confirmed the deaths of the second-year students in an email to students and staff.

A native of New Jersey, Sara was an enormously talented student who was well on her way to achieving her high school dream of becoming a leader in the sports industry,” Meyer wrote. “Wajih, a native of Rhode Island, had worked as an accountant and financial analyst for a global oil services company in Dubai before coming to law school. … Please reach out and support one another at this extremely difficult time.”
