Dr. Talat Jehan Khan Wiki – Biography
Dr. Talat Jehan Khan, a 52-year-old mother of two, was casually sitting with her dog in the city of Conroe on Saturday when Miles Joseph Fridrich allegedly stabbed her multiple times, police reportedly said. “This is an immeasurable loss for our family, completely unexpected,” Khan’s niece, Mahnoor Mangrio, told KHOU. “She is Muslim, strong in her faith, those are identifiable traits in her. She is extremely affectionate, kind. “She was my aunt… the best aunt.” The motive for the stabbing was not immediately clear after Fridrich’s arrest. The Council on American-Islamic Relations in Houston said in a statement that it is “paying close attention” to the investigation. “We are unsure at this time if this was a hate crime; however, given the tragic circumstances, we are paying close attention to the investigation,” the organization said in a statement.
Dr. Talat Jehan Khan was 52 years old.
We will continue to monitor the situation as we launch our own investigation and continue the dialogue established with authorities.” Fridrich, 24, was arrested on charges of first-degree murder. He allegedly attacked Khan around 12:30 p.m. at Alys Apartments before fleeing on foot, Conroe police said, according to KTRK. Khan was pronounced dead at the scene. Fridrich was later arrested after witnesses to the crime gave authorities a description of the alleged offender. A witness told KHOU that the suspect “came out of nowhere” in the shocking attack. “I was outside and I heard a woman out there, and I heard she was screaming,” the witness told the station. “She was sitting at the picnic table.” Wajahat Nyaz told KPRC that her murdered sister moved to the area from Seattle in July to enjoy the area’s climate.
“She liked to see the sun and the warm weather, so that was one of the main reasons she moved here,” she said. The victim leaves behind a 14-year-old daughter and a 23-year-old son. “Her children and her children that she cared for as a pediatrician were her entire life,” Nyaz also said. “Everything in her life revolved around those two things.” The family told the station they do not believe Khan and Fridrich knew each other before the murder. Fridrich has faced previous drug and weapons charges in Conroe that were later dropped or dismissed, KPRC reported. The Texas mosque Khan attended expressed its condolences to the family and encouraged members to be vigilant and aware of his surroundings. Al-Ansaar Islamic Center also said he was seeking additional security for Friday prayer and other programs while planning to share his security concerns with Montgomery County authorities, according to a Facebook post.
