According to police, Hend Bustami, 28, allegedly murdered her 62-year-old mother at a home in Las Vegas on the morning of Oct. 26, KLAS-TV reported.

“At approximately 2:30 in the morning, a 911 dispatcher received a phone call from a frantic female stating that her mother was dead,” Metro Lt. Dave Valenta said. “Then the line was disconnected.”

Officers responding to the scene found the victim dead from “multiple deep lacerations.”

California Highway Patrol located Bustami in Barstow, California, around 5 a.m. that day and detained her on a fugitive of justice charge.

Bustami was being held at a San Bernadino County jail and was expected to be extradited to Nevada to face a murder charge.


On Aug. 31, Bustami was in the news when police wrote in a report that they responded to a call about a woman not paying her bill at a Chili’s restaurant at Vegas’ Harry Reid International Airport.

“Soon after, officers working D gates were notified by TSA that [a] female matching that description was observed sleeping near the security checkpoint, hindering their operations,” the report stated.

Bustami was located in the baggage claim area and became “belligerent with officers, saying she was being harassed because cops [had] never seen anyone as pretty as her,” police said in the report.

While officers were placing Bustami under arrest, the report states she told them that “she was going to spit on all [the officers] and that officers were perverts and were trying to rape her because they [had] never seen anyone as good looking.”

At the time, Bustami was booked into the Clark County Detention Center and charged with public misconduct at an airport.
