SAO PAULO — Police say they are investigating the
murder of an Iranian businessman whose body was found in his apartment
in northeastern Brazil.
Police inspector Wagner Domingues
identifies the murder victim as Bahnan Guerafar, a 71-year-old real
estate businessman, who for the past 20 years divided his time between
the city of Recife and Paris.
Domingues said Thursday that
Guerafar was killed at least two days ago with several blows to his head
with a blunt object. His body was found sprawled on his bed by one of
his employees who had a key to the apartment.
He says police have no suspects or hard leads on the murder.
