The victim’s grieving family appealed for public help in finding her when she went missing earlier this month, as she was seriously ill with cancer. Immediately after officers announced the news of the death, the victim’s mother appeared in a video on social media appealing to King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz, Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and the Prince of Hail to form a committee to probe the killing of her daughter, known by local media as the “Hail Missing Woman”. The heartbroken mother said: “I appeal to King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz, the Crown Prince and the Prince of Hail, I am the mother of Latifa Mohammed Al Enazi, who was murdered in Hail. My daughter was kidnapped, raped and murdered, I want her killers to be prosecuted and brought to justice.” She accused the Hail regional police of covering up the crime because they belong to the same tribe as the murderer, demanding an investigation by an independent committee. The mother’s video went viral on social media as users reacted with emphasis on the just judiciary system in Saudi Arabia under the leadership of King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman. The officers and experts who examined the crime scene found marks on the woman’s body, indicating she was brutally assaulted. Investigations are still underway with the suspects, believed to be in their 30s.
