Nancy Fayad, a 38-year-old mother of two, worked in psychiatry.

On Friday, she is suspected of having been murdered by a man she was caring for.

– She was the kindest soul. She did not deserve this, not at all, says her sister Rita Fayad.

Nancy Fayad from Floby in Västra Götaland was going to her job in psychiatry on 5 November.

But she never showed up. And when she never came home again, or answered when her relatives tried to reach her, she was reported missing.

– We called and called but she never answered. We became worried, says her sister Rita.

On Monday, police found Nancy dead, suspected murdered, in an apartment in Falköping.

– She was extremely enterprising, my sister. She worked in psychiatry and at the same time studied for a management education. In addition, she was the mother of two boys, 14 and 17 years old, and volunteered in the church, says Rita Fayad.

“Said she was scared”

Much is still unknown about what happened to Nancy. Both how she died and why.

According to Aftonbladet’s information, it was through her professional practice that she and the now suspected man became acquainted with each other.

The man who is now in custody on probable cause on suspicion of murder has well-documented mental problems. In a decision, a doctor warns that it can be dangerous if the care of him ceases.

It was recently decided that the man would get a so-called satellite apartment in Falköping, but that the forensic psychiatric care of him would continue, among other things through visits from the accommodation staff.

– Nancy called me once and said that she was afraid of this particular man, but she also said that she did not think he would hurt her. And I did not take it seriously myself either. For someone with knowledge had decided that he was capable of living in an apartment, says Rita.

The man was convicted in 2016 of a murder fire where the sentence was closed forensic psychiatric care, a care that has been ongoing since then. He himself has appealed the care on several occasions when he considers himself healthy.

Judged to have had a risk of relapse

The man’s ex-wife has previously described how he threatened her. She has at times had a restraining order against him and has sole custody of the children.

Rita Fayad is very angry that this could have happened. That a man who was repeatedly judged by doctors as having a high risk of relapse into serious crime is now suspected of having killed her sister when she, it seems, was just trying to do her job.

– If Nancy had died a natural death, it would have been one thing. Horrible and terrible but something that unfortunately happens. But that she has been killed seemingly cold-blooded, I can not come to terms with.

Rita describes her sister as a kind person. Enterprising, good and always with a smile on his face.

– She was always kind and open and social. She just looked good in people.

Planning a moment of remembrance

The detained man admits that there was a riot between him and Nancy on November 5, but he denies murder. He told the court that he does not remember how she died.

In Floby, many now mourn Nancy who was a popular person. During the week, candles have been lit for her, including outside her husband’s restaurant, and a memorial service for her is planned.

– It is completely inconceivable that this has happened. We want everyone to know who Nancy was, that she was loved. And that everyone opens their eyes to the societal problems that exist for this should not have to happen at all, says Rita Fayad.

Prosecution must be filed on November 24. The man must also undergo a section 7 investigation, a so-called small mental examination.
