Sparkle Rai and Chiman Rai

The TV One true-crime series "ATL Homicide" covered the murder of Sparkle Rai, a newlywed mother-of-one, who was killed in her Union City, Georgia apartment in 2000.

The killer stabbed Sparkle and strangled her with a vacuum cleaner cord in front of her crying baby after letting himself into her apartment with a key. Police had no suspects and the case soon went cold.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution didn't cover Sparkle's murder at the time. The 22 year-old was just another random Black victim of violent crime in Atlanta.

Sparkle's cold case was reopened in 2006 when her father-in-law Chiman Rai, 67, of Louisville, Ky., was arrested and charged with hiring a hit man to kill her because she was Black.

Chiman's son, Rajeeve "Ricky" Rai, had dishonored the family's good name by marrying an American Black woman.

Chiman, an immigrant from India, offered Sparkle $10,000 to break up with his son. When she refused, Chiman sought a deadly solution to his family problem.

Rajeeve discovered his wife's body on the floor of their Flat Shoals Road apartment on April 26, 2000. She was just inside the front door, which was locked from the inside, according to the AJC.com.

Five Black men men, including Sparkle's killer, Cleveland Clark, 49, and his brother Carl Clark, 43, both of Mississippi, were charged in Sparkle's contract killing. The five men ranged in age from 43 to 74.

"It was cultural," Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard told a reporter. "Her father-in-law couldn't accept her marriage to his son because she was not Indian, and that was further escalated by that the fact that she was an African-American woman."

Chiman Rai's trial received wall-to-wall coverage in the AJC and other local media outlets. In 2008, Chiman Rai, then 68, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

In 2009, Clark, the 6-3, nearly 300-pound killer, then 52, was convicted of Sparkle's murder and sentenced to die by lethal injection.

Sparkle's husband, Rajeeve, moved to Chicago and married an Indian woman the same year his wife died. He never returned to Atlanta for the trial, and his new wife was not aware of his first marriage or his former wife's brutal murder.

In 2006, Sparkle's father Bennett Reid and his wife, former 11Alive reporter Donna Lowry, adopted the couple's daughter, Annalla, who was only 7 months old when her mother was killed in front of her.

Bennett and Lowry were Anilla's guardian until 2006 when Sparkle's killer was arrested.

"I waited so long to adopt her because I didn't want to erase the memory of my child," said Reid.

    Sparkle's widower didn't waste time moving on huh? Didn't even want his daughter. Now he can make his father proud w/his Indian wife while dad rots in prison.

  • Trace da Ace

    That makes me wonder if the son was in on it or not.....I mean how can you move on so fast after this happened?? I'm sure he had some knowledge of what his father was planning....damn shame that girl did not have to die like that....

  • SpiceGirl

    serious side eye

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Wait so did the child grow up primarily with her maternal grandparents? The son never looked back eh?

    Also, this is extreme self hate. That pseudo Dravidian looking MF is black too!

    ALSO! Shame on those old å?s black men for conducting this šhït! Raggedy MFs.

  • Rainbowbelow

    I know people handle grief in different ways but that son damn sure recovered and moved on quickly after his wife's death.

  • Ryan

    They do similar things in their own country and think it'll fly over here. Her being black was the last nail in the coffin. Colonialism shaped India's (and many other countries) beliefs and culture. Whole thing is sad.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    you see they're trying to couch it like it was almost an 'honor' killing, saying it was "cultural" like that made it better, smh.
    he was about to be next if he hadn't married according to the new'arrangement' ...he found out his dad was a real one!

  • xenaD

    I have so many stories about these people. I was up top telling a story but I just deleted it! I have some Punjabi friends and boy o boy ????? their beliefs and culture [amongst other things]are out of this world yo

  • iWasteTime

    I don't know if he knew but once his dad killed the wife and "absolved" him of the insult if he continued the insult, including claiming his child, he and or the child would be next.

  • justlooking

    Pure Evil
    That's horrible. Glad the baby was too young to remember the violence.

  • justlooking

    I'm sure that was whom is was made to marry in the first place. Which is why she never new.
    Iono care where they from. do a little digging about the person you are with. It pays off.

  • hi-liter

    Sparkle’s husband, Rajeeve, moved to Chicago and married an Indian woman the same year his wife died. He never returned to Atlanta for the trial, and his new wife was not aware of his first marriage or his former wife’s brutal murder.

    They didn't pick the Husband up too?

  • KcoolMuziq

    Men usually do find mates & marry quickly afterwards.

  • Simone

    Yes, yes, I remember this story via an ID Discovery show I saw years ago. It was heartbreaking. The picture posted of her is not a good one. She was a pretty girl. Indian culture, mainly the older generation, is very strict on marrying their own. I believe this evil ghoul owned a motel and threaten to cut the son off financially and the son still stayed with Sparkle. I have an Indian co-worker who cut 2 out of his 3 kids out of his life because one had babies with a Hispanic girl and his Daughter married a Black Jamaican dude. My Indian childhood friend used to sneak out to see this Black guy she was in love with because her family forbid it. She was forced to abort his kid by her parents. They even moved her away.

  • hi-liter

    I believe the husband had some knowledge of what his father did. If he loved his wife, he would not have moved on so quickly and would have a relationship with the daughter his wife left behind.

  • TransMichelle

    Men can't live alone long or live alone at all like women can.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Ah. Sparkle Rai. Never forgot her.

  • hi-liter

    Indian people with their dark skin would rather be associated with white people and they think black folk are the scum of the earth, but most white people wouldn't want them AND they call them sand niggas soooo....there you go.

    Funny thing about it is that no race wants their children dating black people.

  • Karen Brady

    I saw this on Snapped or one of those shows a few years ago. FUK the husband for denying her after her MURDER.

  • She.Is.Not.Ready

    It's sickening the way they treat women.

  • Kanyade

    yeah, they got issues. they believe in their caste system...still.

  • Kanyade

  • Look@m3

    Crazier thing is Black people are so welcoming to other races and no one wants us.

  • Trey

    Honor killing...its real....I work with an Indian guy that says he would never go that far.....but he also would not financially support his daughters if they married a non-Indian

  • Solstice

    I remember this story! So very sad. The father was hell bent on his son not marrying and having a child with Sparkle. Shame. Sparkle, their daughter and her family didn’t deserve this. ?

  • TransMichelle

    You right about that

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Right! When I realized THAT was him I damn near laughed!

  • Nik

    When you marry into another culture, you definitely have to have a deep discussion with your partner about how the family would respond to the relationship. Some cultures take that very seriously and you really have to weigh the worth of entering such a union. It's not just about the in-laws not liking you. You have to think about if you have kids and how they would be impacted not being accepted by close relatives. It's a shame it has to come to that but that's reality.

  • tintin

    "Five Black men men".. Look at that. black men went and killed this lady. He used us against us. The indian hates us but hires black men to carry out his dirty deed. Black people will kill for nothing.

  • Nik

    I'm saying. Sounds mad suspect to me.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Apparently it’s so bad they’d kill about it!

  • She.Is.Not.Ready

    Indians and Asians too. The Indians have a caste system and the Asians paint themselves white. Sad nobody wants to be themselves.

  • Nik

    THIS!

  • Bonita

    Just brought this exact thing up to my cousin yesterday. Some are darker than some of us, but hate us. And just like a lot of Africans that move to the states, they love some White folks.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Indians don't care what your race is. They do not want their children marrying anyone other than an Indian. This girl could have been white and met the same fate. They just don't believe in it and will resort to extreme measures like this fool did.

  • Nik

    The irony in that is nauseating to say the least. Black on black crime to appease a man who is racist against blacks. SMH.

  • Ni Ni

    They are just trifling with that crap.

  • She.Is.Not.Ready

    The gag is "the whites" see other races as nothing more tools to their own enlightenment and enrichment.

  • Nik

    WOW! What ever happened to a person's happiness as the main priority?

  • Bashi22

    I watch this on Lifetime channel , it hurt so bad that the Indian son who she had a child is weak. His parent run his life, after living in ATL with her he moved back with his parents who orchestrated this murder. While leaving behind the child that the father don't care for. I'm so upset with these poor none critical thinking black man that did the killing for like $500-800. They all love black people money but behind close door it's a different thing. I see my black brothers with their daughter on their arms but love is love. This is only one case their are many more.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I wonder if the biological father will keep in contact with his child...

  • Nik

    If not, he better fear that good old gal named Karma paying him a visit.

  • Bashi22

    Unless they are wealthy

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yuup.

  • Trey

    They come from traditions......we as black folk dont have any so marrying anybody and everybody is acceptable

  • Trey

    Used us against us and they didnt realize they were killing another black person because they were black....now thats deep

    they were coons

  • Bashi22

    Skin Bleaching is rampant in Indian but you think mainstream media would high light it no but black people they will do

  • shelly

    Who would want to marry a Indian man they don’t use deodorant. And they think they’re better than Black people. GTFOH

  • Trey

    Not true....if they are "modern" Indians and you are a doing well for yourself as a white man...you might get a pass.

    But a black person....thats a a no-no

  • Trey

    Of course not.....he married an Indian woman in another state that same year of the killing and didnt tell her he had a kid.

    For all we know, he might have been in on it....

  • Guest

    I read on another site that he has not seen her since she was six months old. He defended his father and moved on. He married an Indian lady the second time. smh.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Skin bleaching is rampant all over the world. I've seen Africans with horribly disfigured skin from bleaching.

  • shelly

    But Blacks will date any race.

  • SpiceGirl

    my point too...smh.....shame tho

  • Nik

    We have our traditions but they are not several hundred to thousands of years old where they are so firmly entrenched. Second, we all know that in this country being black is so vilified that to marry outside of the culture is seen as "marrying up". That narrative has to change.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    they stay appropriating. i was watching an interview with Sammy Hagar (Van Halen) and he was pushing 'his' "new" tequila. all he'd done was hang around the Mexicans to get their recipe, and now he's marketing it like he 'discovered' something. (and there was absolutely NO mention of him 'partnering' with the Mexicans, so they get nothing more from him than the usual cost of the agave). you see it over and over, and it really gets on my nerve... argh!!

  • Trey

    Agreed 100%...

  • Ni Ni

    Low down dirty bastid.

  • Kanyade

    it is a great hood-winking of psychology that went on thanks to colonialism (majority) that got melanated folk the world over thinking white is better. i just hit the Google for india and skin bleaching products. it brought up images of their advertising as well as other asian countries, african countries, caribbean, the americas.

    it's just a hot mess.

    Yes I went to school with this Indian Girl and her parents let it be known that she could not date a Black Man. And when I say she wanted one so bad she ended up marrying one and moving to California. The have 3 beautiful daughters and a handsome son.

  • Trey

    Also what "traditions" do we have that pertains to marriage?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Kinda sad but true. A woman will usually grieve and mourn for years after her spouse's death. Most dudes will grieve for a while, then have a new girlfriend within a year.

  • hi-liter

    ANY Low Life with nothing and nothing to lose Black, white, or WHATEVER will kill for money or "nothing" as you call it.

  • Trey

    We the only race that brag about killing ourselves.....go listen to any rap song

  • Cricket404

    The man's father had a store in a black neighborhood. The killers where his customers. His father was racist and the son grew up working the store surrounded by black culture.

  • hi-liter

    That's street culture when it comes to rap, no matter the color.

  • Bashi22

    I know it's rampant over the world but they make it seem like its only African doing it .

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    The father was OK with making money off of black people, but was disgusted by the idea of having his son marry a black woman. Pathetic.

  • TransMichelle

    Maybe Sandra Rose can make a thread about this. Don't mean to be off topic. This Nigerian girl was voted the most beautiful girl in the world. She's a cute girl but why the weave and blue contacts? Others have commented that they've seen pictures of her and she looks nothing like this photo. She's a sweet girl but the photo is photoshopped like crazy.

    Yes his parent arrange that marriage for him, I do think he's behind the killing too.

  • TransMichelle

    Sure do

  • Prettybrowneound35

    Exactly. They are extremely traditional. Black, white, yellow, or green...that woman would have met the same fate.

  • TransMichelle

    I know. Don't know why we feel the need to be accepted by everyone.

  • Trey

    I dont care about this....

  • hi-liter

    How do you know it's blue contacts and weave necessarily? I've seen black people with blue eyes.

  • Prettybrowneound35

    I’ve met two Black women married to Indian men. They are both alive.

  • TransMichelle

    Look up other photos online. You can see it's a weave. I have seen black girls with lots of hair but this isn't this girl's hair. Where have you seen black people with blue eyes? Not in Nigeria.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    I just have to comment. I am disgusted that black men, took the life of this young black woman. For a coin! It just says, we will do anything for a dollar.

  • TransMichelle

    OK

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. They *prefer* that their kids marry Indian. But if they marry a white person they'll tolerate it, or even be happy with it if it's a white person with money. I know one Indian woman who married a white doctor who makes over $200k, and her family is fine with him. (Best believe if she had married a black man, that would be a problem though... even if he was a doctor making good money.)

  • hi-liter

    Never been to Nigeria, but like I said.

  • Nik

    I do have an answer. However, your use of quotation marks around "traditions" indicates that you believe we have none and are most likely firm in that opinion, so I will not attempt to lessen your objection. We can agree to disagree on whether or not traditions exist.

  • TransMichelle

  • hi-liter

    You must be talking about the "Blacks" you know apparently.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    A lot of them are in arranged marriages, so they don't necessarily even love their husbands. And divorce is frowned upon among traditional Indians, so you have a lot of these Indian woman stuck in unhappy marriages. Doesn't surprise me at all that a lot of them would be flirting with men outside their marriage.

  • Trey

    Yeah....she is in an arranged marriage so she is not attracted to the guy at all....Dont need that pressure

  • Quitedeliteful

    True...

    The son...Ricky was his americanized name...also lied to Sparkle and her family that his dad was dead and his mom was too. Sparkle's dad had gotten him connected up with some job in I wanna say Columbus, GA. Lo and behold Ricky's "dead" mama called the job one day. They had found him. Thing is while he was supposedly attending his "dead mama and daddy nem" funerals in INDIA he lied and said...this fukka disappeared for TWO weeks and nobody knew where he was. He for sure raised some flags.

  • CaramelDrop

    Just read an excerpt from Sparkles step-mom POV. So heartbreaking.... I think Rajeev knew exactly what his father was capable of. What the father-in-law did was inexcusable but that big black mangy bastard that killed her deserved something much more inhuman than the Death Penalty.

  • Nik

    AAs are not a monolith so we can't make generalizations about identity. I was raised in an all black suburb in NY and now live in Harlem. I don't know any other narrative in my personal life other than black and proud. As for marriage traditions--or a tradition--that specifically pertain to connecting partners with their prospective families, are general ones not rooted in African ancestry. The man is to present himself to the father, make his intentions known, and discuss how he will take care of his hope-to-be wife. Then there's the family meeting to discuss if what he's talking is acceptable. For many blacks who come from traditional backgrounds, this is a firm rule. Allowances must be made for regional differences in how this is executed and also how important it is, as again, AAs are not a monolith. Afrocentric traditions involve pouring libations, jumping the broom, etc., but how prevalent these practices are may depend upon region as well. On a final note, to address the idea of maintaining traditions, they have to be examined for relevance and feasibility. The tradition of not supporting someone if they marry outside of their culture or an honor killing in order to maintain that tradition is nothing to keep or envy. I know of no black marriage traditions that involve racism and murder.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Not from what I have seen. I have a few Indian friends that have married white and their families went ballistic. Traditionally (I think) the mother gives the new daughter in law some of her 24K jewelry. The white daughters in law got zero and the Indian families are not happy at all...

I never wrote that there are no black people with green, blue, or gray eyes.This little girl is a true doll in this photo below with the green eyes. I've been to three countries in Africa deary.

  • Vegas1989

    I remember playing deaf when some African tried to holla at me and my sister and our friends. They thought us four was going to hook up with the four of them.NO SIR, when he came over and just start talking I kept looking straight. My little sister then tap him and said, "Hun, she hearing impaired so tap her gently on her shoulder so she can talk to you. So I started signing and speaking and then my sister friend spits out her drink because she didn't know that I was going to do that...It was funny. We didn't want to be bothered.

  • 9 Mind

    I believe you. Very sad and backwards thinking. Killing a baby is worse than a baby out of wedlock but perception to others is very important in Asian/Indian culture.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I know that's right. I felt a little guilty about not standing with the Mexican with the whole deportation thing and after I really sit and thought about it. I can't remember a time when Mexicans stood by our side all the way back to the Civil Rights Movement, and after the grandmother in the asian nail shop mess I'll never look at them the same

    I've noticed that there's primarily two groups of Africans that come to the states; refugees and those with money who come here for collegiate studies. The refugees typically tend to stick within their race, but the ones with money tend to pursue White women out the gate. I've crossed paths with many Africans during my college years. And not saying that it doesn't happen, but they don't often marry for a green card. A lot of times they will return to London once they graduate, where those with wealth seem to relocate to once they initially leave Africa, or they go back to their home country in Africa and open businesses. The ones who remain after college will usually apply for citizenship, and tend to either marry within their race or will marry a White woman. Again, this is just my observation.

    Before you date outside of your race, please, take the time to investigate your would-be significant other's culture.

    Indians, Muslims, and Asians have extreme views when it comes to interracial marriages. They also have very traditional views on a woman's role in the family.

    I could have saved Janet Jackson a lot of heartache. I could have explained that her husband may love her, but he needs to be in control and she will never be the only person he makes love to. A traditional Muslim man isn't going to answer to a woman.

    These people come from third world shit holes to America with an attitude of superiority over blacks. I’ve been to India, even though I enjoyed Goa, Mumbai was a slum. The majority live in poverty and are discriminated against, but come to the States and become elitist. Trump is definitely keeping them out of the U.S. I know quite a few Indians that got married under the Obama administration thinking they were going to bring their spouses here....Not! Maybe they’ll change their attitudes when they realize they are the same shade as African Americans and these Trump supporters will definitely let them know they are not wanted.

  • Disgustd

    Look up the Bhatti Tribe of Pakistan or look up pics of Indian Albinos. These are the people that what we call caucasians come from. If you see pics of Indian albinos, some of them are completely indistinguishable from whites. So they are one in the same as far as I'm concerned and even Hinduism includes permanent caste systems and heiarchies and the Dalits or Untouchables are treated worst than animals, I mean even their shadows are considered a curse. So I'm not surprised they are given honorary white status in the US and fall right in line with the existing US apartheid system.

    Thankfully I must say living in Canada and living in America are two different worlds, it's almost like interracial relationships are more "accepted" in Canada than in the U.S. The difference is almost night and day, BUT no matter where you are in the world though, you should be able to date whatever race you choose! At the end of the day, if the fam ain't wid it.....LET IT GO!!!!!!!

    That is precisely why you shouldn't say what you'd never do... I've always made it clear that I would never date outside my race...but I did,I enjoyed it. I honestly didn't see or feel any difference. All relationships have their short comings.. Nothing is never perfect

    I remember this story because it reminds me of that movie that Denzel Washington started in, in the 90's. Mississippi Masala where he was dating the Indian girl and her parents didn't like it. The dialogue between Denzel and her father is what made the movie.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I was wondering about that too.

    They want Black men behind closed doors, I have had relations with several Indian women.

  • Ant Hill

    may have been an Indian from the Caribbean, they are not like the ones here in the U.S.

  • Ant Hill

    that's true, a lot of them got that odor

    Thanks but, I think the other person needed this, not me. I know they exist.

    You went and toured the whole of Eastern Nigeria? Or you checked a few photos on google? I lived in Eastern Nigeria and saw many light skinned, light eyed Igbos.

    This is a common look amongst Igbos . I lived in Eastern Nigeria for many years, I saw many people like the little girl in the photo. Also in Cameroon. The Ewes of Ghana also have this look but tend to have quite a few red heads.
    Travel a little, it will enlighten you.

    Good to see I am not the only one that thinks this way! That is why whenever I hear of an African, Indian or Asian person crying because a white person called the police on them I just smile. All immigrants benefited from the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which African Americans risked their lives for. How dare they come here and look down on us.

    Why would a black man kill a black woman because she is black? Why did he not stay in India and does he not read the news that honor killing is a crime in the USA? Why haven’t the blacks killed him in prison? Any answers to this tragic story? The only good things are Rai will die in prison. His wife will have to fork over 2:5 million, leaving her to depend on her son. Cleveland got the death penalty for killing a black lady because she is black! By the way, the arai’s Are black, so that bitch family needs to open their eyes!

  • Joyce Yagoda

    By the way, Mrs Rai, hoping if she is dependent on her son, she lives forever!

  • Jones

    it was black men who carried out the killing.

  • Jones

    the irony is that the killing was carried out by black men.

  • Jones

    remarried within a year, never went to her murder trial, abandoned his child. explain to me about love again?

  • Jones

    exactly! everyone in the comments condemning her for dating out when it was black men who carried out the killing.
