Hmm... How Did They Know?

A commenter over at Gateway Pundit wonders how the family of Shaima Alawadi knew some very specific details about the crime. It was reported that the victim's cousin, speaking to al Arabiyah, said:

...the murderer snuck into the house on Wednesday morning from the back garden.

“The garden has no fence so he was able to break the glass of the kitchen window right away and apparently he did so without making a noise.”

Hussein added that the attacker then reached for the window handle, opened it, and got inside.

“He did so after watching Shaima’s husband drive away with four of the children he was taking to school. Only Shaima and her eldest daughter Fatima stayed in the house. Fatima was asleep.”

The murderer, Hussein recounted, saw Shaima in the dinning room and attacked her with an iron rod or a spanner.

“He first hit her on her forehead then on her right ear. The third strike was on the back of her head. This was followed by five fast and consecutive strikes on her head and shoulders.”

How did he know those specific details? The police have not released any information on possible suspects, if any. To me, it sounds more like a pre-conceived scenario being related as fact.

I have another question - why did the attacker leave a note? He just beat the victim unconscious, maybe even thinking she was dead. Why leave a note telling her to leave the country?

It all reminds me of a scene from The Sopranos. Paulie confronts some low-level drug dealers encroaching on Soprano turf. He sticks a gun in one punk's mouth:

Paulie: This is all a message to your friends. Stay away from port Newark. Don't even drive out to Jersey. Not even on Sundays.

Valdez: I'll tell them.

Paulie: They've been told. Twice. Now I'll tell 'em.

(Blows Valdez's head off)

See? No note necessary. Unless it's to throw investigators off...
