The Giza Butcher, or “Saffah Al Giza”, is an Egyptian young man named ‘Gaddafi Faraj’. He used to work as a shopkeeper. He committed 4 crimes between 2015-2017, and he was not arrested until 5 years after his crimes.

Gaddafi killed 4 people, and his crimes began with killing his old friend, He lured and served him a poisoned meal and then beat him to death.

The second victim of the Giza butcher was the university student, Nadine. He promised to marry her, but he killed her after she asked him to fulfill his promise, then he deceived her family by telling them that she had traveled to work abroad.

Gaddafi then married Nadine’s sister, Fatima, and killed her after an argument over expenses, and put her in a deep freezer. He then moved to Alexandria and impersonated his friend Reda, and killed him and married a pharmacist named Noha.

Noha was the fourth victim who Gaddafi killed after she discovered his crimes. He buried her in a room inside the store. In March 2021, Gaddafi was sentenced to death, and some sources indicated that there is a fifth victim of the perpetrator named Yasmine.
