An Ohio man has been charged with raping and killing 23-year-old woman. Dr. Ali Salim is charged with murdering Deanna Ballman after she responded to a Craigslist ad. The Doctor allegedly injected the expecting mother with a lethal dose of heroin killing her and her unborn baby and later doing 'inhumane' things to her corpse.
The mother of two was found dead in the backseat of her car outside of New Albany on August 1. The Pakistani born doctor was charged with two counts of murder as well as rape, felonious assault, corrupting another with drugs, kidnapping, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse. The 44-year-old doctor has pleaded not guilty to the charges and will be released on $1 million bail Friday.
Salim had put up an ad on Craigslist looking for models to which Ballamn responded to, but told her family she was responding to a housecleaning ad. In September investigators searched the Salim's Ohio home and confiscated his laptop, camera, and other items.
Kyle Rohrer, assistant county prosecutor said Salim mistreated Ballman's corpse "in a very inhumane way."
According to 10TV, Salim had sent a woman an offer to paint organs on her body for $300 in September and insisted that the work environment be 'drama free,' adding 'I just don't need the drama.' Salim allegedly told the woman, "wear anything but black or brown bra, and panties are essential. I will take most shots from the back."
The coroner found Ballamn had died from a Heroin overdose and had substances such as, morphine and codeine in her system. Ballman's urine contained morphine, monoacetylmorphine, codeine, acetylocodine and diacetylmorphine.
Rohrer said, "We believe this is not an isolated incident and that he remains a threat to others in the public if he's released." Rohrer also claims that since Salim is a Pakistani native he has reason to flee the country and asked for his bail to be raised to $5 million. Salim's attorney, Sam Shamansky doesn't believe his client had reason to leave the country after living her for almost 20-years, "If he was going to flee, it would have happened,"
