Muaz Haffar Description
Muaz Haffar is a fugitive charged with 1st degree murder. He is from the Chicago suburb of Burr Ridge, but may have fled to Egypt, Syria, Turkey, or Lebanon. If you have any information regarding his whereabouts please contact the police.
Corboy & Demetrio has filed a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the family of a UIC college student who was beaten to death in the early morning hours of July 9, 2005.
Tombol Malik, age 23, was allegedly beaten to death by Muaz Haffar, age 21, 8250 Lake Ridge Drive, Burr Ridge, and Mantas Matulis, age 20, of unincorporated Willowbrook, outside a party in the 1500 block of South Sangamon Street, Chicago. Haffar and Matulis have been charged with first degree murder and aggravated battery. Haffar, the son of a doctor, has posted bail and has been released from custody. Matulis remains in custody.
Malik died from horrific injuries he sustained while beaten over the head and face repeatedly with a bicycle lock. His face was disfigured beyond recognition.
Partner Shawn Kasserman of Corboy & Demetrio said:
Tombol was a peaceful and kind human being--a gentle and intelligent man--who was killed for no reason by unimaginable brutality. The lawsuit seeks compensation from Haffar and Matulis, but most importantly, it serves as an opportunity to secure justice and hold the responsible parties accountable. We will use every means available to make sure the defendants pay for the damage they have inflicted on this family.
Tombol Malik is survived by Karen Brobst, his mother; Sharafuddin Malik, his father; Samil Malik and Sati Malik, his brothers; and Shiera Malik, his sister.
