WATCH THE INTERVIEW: justice, not revenge
The three were shot and killed in an incident at Yusor and Deah’s Chapel Hill apartment Tuesday evening.
Namee Barakat described the relationship between his son and his wife, Yusor, as a “special one.”
He said he asked Deah if the couple had argued at all since becoming engaged or married.
“He said, ‘Oh, once. We had a water fight,’ ” Namee Barakat said. “They were very beautiful children.”
Abu-Salha praised the three for their selflessness.
“I could never say enough. I will never feel like I am repeating myself because of how beautiful they were,” he said.
“Articulate, athletic, intelligent, distinguishable,” he said of all three.
Abu-Salha spoke of how excited Yusor was to be accepted to UNC’s School of Dentistry the day before she was married to Deah in December. MORE: justice, not revenge
