Dahlia Yehia : Michigan woman beaten to death while traveling in Nepal “Video”

Dahlia Yehia, an American woman who went to render aid in Nepal after this year’s devastating earthquake, was beaten to death by a teacher last month.

According to the Himilayan Times, Yehia was renting a room from a teacher named Narayan Paudel.

Apparently, Paudel invited her via the internet to stay with him as part of an earthquake relief support program.

Paudel confessed to beating Yehia to death with a hammer and throwing her body into the Seti River on August 7.

Police have yet to determine a motive for the killing.

Yehia’s family set up a Facebook page, called Find Dahlia after they lost contact with her on August 6th.

In a post made on September 4th, her family made this statement: “We are devastated by this senseless loss of a beautiful life. For those who haven’t had the joy of spending time with Dahlia, know that she is a giver, lover, and humanitarian, who devoted her life to others less fortunate both domestic and abroad.”

Yehia graduated from Portage Central High School. She graduated from Kalamazoo College in 2011.

On Friday, a prayer service was held by Kalamazoo College. Officials with the school also released this statement to the campus community and alumni: “The College is saddened to learn of the death of Dahlia Yehia ’11. Dahlia was traveling as a tourist in Nepal when contact with her family suddenly ceased. She had been missing since early August. At K, Dahlia earned her bachelor’s degree in art, and she studied abroad in Quito, Ecuador. She was active in community service and interested in literature and mathematics…Our thoughts and condolences go out to Dahlia’s friends and family during this difficult time.”
