Assassinated Lebanese missile engineer graduate in US university: Hadi Kasab

Remember graduate student Hadi Kasab?

The young Lebanese who was on track to graduate last month with a master’s degree from MIT’s Computation for Design and Optimization program and who was found dead in his dormitory room in March?

Well, this is the report that was finally published by the university on his death:

State officials release causes of graduate student deaths

The deaths of graduate students Hadi Kasab and Eliana Hechter, whom MIT lost this spring, have since been ruled suicides.

Hechter, a first-year medical student in Harvard and MIT’s joint Health Sciences and Technology program, died by hanging in April, the Cambridge Day reported in May, citing state police records.

Kasab, who was on track to graduate last month with a master’s degree from MIT’s Computation for Design and Optimization program, was found dead in his dormitory room in March.

According to his death certificate, Kasab died of cyanide poisoning.

This determination was released in June.

For Kasab’s family in Lebanon, the wait for answers had been prolonged by a backlog of toxicology tests at the state medical examiner’s office, The Boston Globe reported.

Why would someone like this brilliant young man commit suicide?
Does the Lebanese government care to know?

I believe more information must be found in order to uncover what caused the death of Hadi Kasab. Who were behind his death and all the evidence must be recovered under mysterious circumstances. The sad reality is that many victims have faced similar demise because they have been involved in sensitive and crucial studies related to weapons and military research. Sad day but never shocking.
