UPDATE: No evidence Hamza Warsame was beaten before fall

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Seattle Police officials told media this week that there investigation into the death of Hamza Warsame, the 16-year-old Seattle Central College student who fell 60 feet to his death from a building near Summit and Thomas on December 5, has not produced any evidence to support the claim that Warsame did not simply fall to his death, but was instead, beaten and then thrown from the rooftop. Seattle Police officials maintain that, based on the physical evidence and at least one eyewitness statement, Warsame fell.

The official word from SPD is that investigators have found 'no indication of foul play.'

The story has garnered international attention due to the fact that several incidents, both in and out of the U.S. have occurred recently that brought to light local tensions and concerns about hate and Islamophobia against Muslim communities. Hamza's parents emigrated from Somalia to Seattle in 1994, where Hamza and his sister Ikram Warsame were born and raised.

'This was murder, this was not a suicide,' Hamza's sister Ikram Warsame told CHS Blog, who originally broke the story on December 8. 'He was content with his life, he had high hopes for the future.'

The King County Medical Examiner has said that their death investigation is also complete. The results, however, have been on hold pending release by SPD due to the sensitive nature of the investigation and the wait for final toxicology reports to detect elements like alcohol or drug use.

Warsame was a Rainier Beach High School student starting his first quarter at Seattle Central under the college's Running Start program, which allows high school juniors and seniors to take college-level classes for high school and college credit. Ikram said Hamza wanted to attend MIT in Boston to study computer science.
