Mother-of-four accused of severing boyfriend’s penis and stabbing his pal in DOUBLE MURDER
BRUNSWICK, MELBOURNE: A mother-of-four appeared in court on charges of killing two men, one of whom was her boyfriend, who was allegedly discovered with his penis severed. Jasmine Eveleigh has been accused of the stabbing murder of her boyfriend Samir Esbeck, 59, and his friend Sarkis Abboud, 61, at their apartment in the inner-Melbourne neighborhood of Brunswick at 5.20 am on May 5, 2022.
While Abboud, 61, died from stab wounds while traveling to the hospital, Esbeck, 59, allegedly had his penis removed and died at the scene. Later that morning, the 44-year-old was discovered covered in a significant amount of blood at a Carlton tram stop. Magistrate Andrew McKenna requested a psychiatric report be prepared prior to her next court date, during a committal hearing on Monday morning, August 29.
Eveleigh is alleged to have been living with her boyfriend Esbeck at the Brunswick apartment building on the corner of Breese and Hope Streets. Before she allegedly attacked Esbeck with a knife in a fit of rage, the pair were believed to have been in a relationship for ten years. It was reported by Daily Mail, that when Eveleigh experienced a "severe breakdown" in June 2021, she had received treatment for a variety of mental health issues.
Even after her mental health issues surfaced, Eveleigh was a devoted mother who loved her children and even bragged about her youngest kid's kindness and moral courage in the face of difficulty. "I am truly blessed to be the mum of such a kind, remarkable, true gentleman. I'm not perfect at everything, but I do make some adorable babies," read one of the sweet tributes she posted last year, one of the many she wrote about cherishing motherhood and family. "I never intended to hurt those around me when I was hurting. I was at war with myself and sadly many I loved become casualties. I never intended to damage anyone while I was broken," she wrote in a separate post.
Moments after the alleged attack, Eveleigh was seen on camera walking down the street in nothing more than a bra and her shirt wrapped around her left hand. She is seen sprinting down dark alleys and across many streets wearing allegedly blood-stained shoes. According to the police, the woman left a 1.5 km (0.9 mile) blood trail behind her, with blood splatters discovered on numerous roads and in a playground.
Christine Abboud, the daughter of the alleged victim Sarkis Abboud, paid a tribute to him on her Facebook page on July 28 and wrote,"First of many birthdays without you. 62 today but was young and full of life. I will never let today become just another day because it will always be your special day. Happy birthday in heaven dad we miss you so much."
Magistrate McKenna, during his brief appearance in court at the Melbourne Magistrates Court, asked that the case be postponed until the mental health report is finished. On September 19, the case will be brought back before the judge for a committal mention.
