The parents of 23-year-old Manaz Zaman loved to brag about their son for years. They would proudly tell that he was about to graduate and become a successful engineer. In order to support him and his success, all his family members emigrated from Bangladesh to Toronto, Canada, so that he could have a good education and develop a bright future. But after years of lying, the son could no longer stand the double life he had, and decided to do an extreme act. Watch the report on the sentence handed down following the shocking murder:
Every day, Zaman would leave his house to catch the bus to the university, and when he returned from his long day, he would tell his parents about the mechanical engineering studies in which he claimed to have taken part. Zaman’s parents believed over the years that their son was studying at the successful New York University, when in fact he was not accepted there at all in the first place and enrolled in a local college, and also there quickly failed and dropped out of his studies in 2015.
Since then, Zaman has hidden from his family that he is not a student. Every day he would leave his house with his backpack and laptop, pretending to go to university, while he would usually find a place to rest or play video games he loved. In the summer of 2019, Zaman knew his time was running out, as the graduation ceremony was approaching, and his parents excited for receiving their son’s degree and the lie had been exposed.
This past summer, the day before the graduation ceremony was scheduled to take place, Zaman returned to his home worried about how to tell his parents. In order to avoid telling the big secret, Zaman waited for the right moment, and murdered all his family members. While his father and sister were at work, Zaman entered his home and slit his mother’s throat with a knife he had taken from the kitchen. About an hour later, he did the same to his grandmother.
After the murder, Zaman waited for his father and sister to return from work, and when his sister arrived he hit her hard and stabbed her to death. Late at night, when his father arrived, Zaman ended his killing spree and also slit his father’s throat. Instead of running away or calling the police, Zaman stayed at his home and started playing computer games, where he wrote, “I just slaughtered my whole family,” while his virtual friends were sure he was joking. But a few minutes later, he posted a picture of his family’s bodies online.
After the image he sent, the network users decided to join forces and try to locate his location using the IP address of his computer. When they were able to find where Zaman was in the world, the gang called the local police, who arrived at the crime scene and found Zaman and all the bodies of his family there. Recently, the court ruled that Zaman will be sent to jail, with the sentence set at 40 years. The murder was carried out in order to keep his secret from his family – but now, the whole world knows.
