Parents of Oregon hit-and-run victim says they are uncertain if the suspect will return from Saudi Arabia

A report says that the parents of an Oregon teen are still struggling with their daughter’s death after the suspected killer escaped to Saudi Arabia with the help of the government. The incident took place almost three years back when the suspect killed the teen in a hit-and-run, say reports.

Parents of 15-year-old, Fallon Smart, interacted with the news reporters and shared that the senseless killing of their daughter seems to like the “plot of an intriguing novel.”

“It’s hard to believe that it’s part of your reality,” Fawn Lengvenis, the young girl’s mother, said, in their first interview since her death.

Court documents say that officials arrested the suspect Abdulrahman Sameer Noorah in August 2016 and charged him with first-degree manslaughter, hit-and-run, reckless endangerment and reckless driving. The officials charged Noorah following the death of Fallon in the hit and run incident in Portland, the documents read.

In September 2016, Consulate of Saudi Arabia posted Noorah’s $100,000 bond, and in early June 2017, Noorah removed his monitoring device and vanished, the court documents added.

Local sources say that the whereabouts of Abdulrahman Sameer Noorah were thought to be unknown until the Saudi government informed U.S. officialsa that he had returned to the kingdom.

“The imagination runs wild,” Fallon’s father, Seth Smart, said during his interaction with one of the leading news channels. “Is he just leading his normal life somewhere? Does he even think about it? Does he even care?”

Besides this, victim’s father shared with one of the newspapers that he is not optimistic that Noorah will ever see justice for the deeds that he has done and ended the life of their most beloved daughter.

Federal officials, on the other hand, told media that they believe Noorah was given a passport with a different identity which helped him escape the country.
