The NYPD fugitive squad tracked down a former boxer who fled to the Middle East after he allegedly murdered his daughter.
Kabary Salem was indicted in the murder of his daughter, Ola Salem, 25, on Nov. 5, law enforcement sources told The NY Post.
Ola Salem's body was discovered by a jogger in Bloomingdale Park in October 2019. The body had been dragged through the woods, then covered with leaves.
Ola Salem worked as an advocate for Muslim women who were victims of domestic violence.
The NYPD's Regional Fugitive Task Force tracked Salem all the way to the Middle East. He was arrested and brought back to New York on Friday, the Post reported.
Salem, 52, is a former professional middleweight boxer from Egypt who fought in the U.S. in the 1990s through early 2000s.
He is notorious for killing one opponent by repeatedly head-butting him in the ring in Sept. 2000. Boxer Randi Carver collapsed after being knocked out in the 10th round, and never regained consciousness.
He died two days later. Salem was not charged in connection with Carver's death.
