ATLANTA, GEORGIA: A slain bartender’s boyfriend has paid tribute to her after witnessing her kidnapping. Mariam Abdulrab was found dead shortly before 10 am on August 13, hours after being abducted at gunpoint outside her house. Now her boyfriend, Atlanta-based rapper Germ, has taken to Instagram to express his heartbreak over the tragedy.
According to reports, the 27-year-old woman was returning home she shared with Germ, real name Jerry Antoine, in Chosewood Park from work in the early morning hours when was kidnapped. Around four hours later, her remains were discovered near the intersection of Lakewood Avenue and Terrace Way in the Lakewood Heights neighborhood. Mariam was employed at Revery VR Bar in Midtown. Sometimes, she also used to serve Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium as a bartender.
In a 911 call released by Atlanta police, her boyfriend told cops that he saw Mariam getting out of the car but then a man abducted her at gunpoint and put her forcefully inside a vehicle, and fled. Later, a person of interest — identified as Demarcus Brinkley — was arrested after a traffic pursuit that led to a crash and pressed with a number of charges, including kidnapping, murder, false imprisonment, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and possession of firearm by a convicted felon. He reportedly had shot the victim several times before dumping her body.
