Barmaid kidnapped after getting home and shot dead before witness finds body

A man allegedly kidnapped a barmaid before shooting her and dumping the body.

Mariam Abdulrab, 27, was forced into a car around 5am on Friday morning, August 13, as she returned home from work in Atlanta, the US.

An hour later, gunfire was reported not far from her home in the city’s Grant Park neighbourhood.

A member of the public found her body shortly before 10am, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The Revery: VR Bar, where Mariam worked, posted a picture of her on Instagram with the caption: “Our hearts are truly broken at the loss of a dear friend and family member.

“Mariam brought light to every single person she came in contact with and will forever be missed.

“We will be closed this weekend to grieve and savor our last moments with her. Please stay safe, y’all.”

Mariam also worked at Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium, which shut down for the weekend.

Owner Grant Henry told the AJC that she was a “living jewel”.

DeMarcus Brinkley, 27, now faces charges including murder, kidnapping, assault, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
