Owner of shed where Daniel Pearl was slain dies
05/19/2007
A Pakistani man who owned the property where Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was murdered by Islamic militants died, weeks after he was freed from four years of mysterious detention, his family said. Saud Memon, 44, who was in the textile business, owned the land and shed where Pearl was slain and buried in a shallow grave by al-Qaida in January 2002. His family says Memon disappeared in March 2003. Human rights groups have said they suspect he and several others were held by Pakistani intelligence agents probing Pearl's slaying. Five days after he was freed, Memon appeared in a wheelchair before the Supreme Court in Islamabad. Reporters in court said he appeared to be in extremely poor physical condition.
