    Disappearance of Ashtabula woman called 'suspicious'

    [​IMG]

    Authorities say they are investigating the case of a missing Ashtabula woman who they say disappeared under suspicious circumstances.

    The Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Office and the Ashtabula Police Department both looking into the disappearance of 23-year-old Rand Hilal Al Dulaimi, of Lambros Lane in Ashtabula City.

    Al Dulaimi, who was last seen on Monday, July 9, was reported missing by family members two days later.

    Friends concerned after Ashtabula woman disappeared over a week ago, 'She would not leave her baby'

    An Ashtabula woman's friends and family continue to worry after one of their own disappeared under what Ashtabula County sheriff's deputies believe to be suspicious circumstances on July 9.

    Her family and friends are worried she may be in danger. They said Al Dulaimi would never leave her 2-year-old son behind.

    “Rand would never run away, 100 percent guaranteed. She would not leave Omar, she would not leave her phone, and she would not leave her vehicle," her friend Coletta Carlisle said. "If she was going to run away intentionally, she would take her phone, her vehicle and her son. She would not leave her baby behind. That’s the biggest thing, she would not leave Omar."

    Another friend, Monica Thompson, described Al Dulaimi as a fighter.

    “Rand was very happy. Rand always kept a smile, even if she wasn’t happy, she would never let anyone see she wasn’t happy,” Thompson said.

    The women met and bonded with Al Dulaimi at a battered women’s shelter where they all lived together. The women said Al Dulaimi spent much of her time in the United States in shelters for abused and battered women.

    Al Dulaimi moved to Ashtabula from Turkey several years ago after she met and married Jeffrey Stanley. The couple has a 2-year-old son, Omar. Court records show divorce proceedings began in September of 2017.

    According to jail records, Jeffrey Stanley was booked into jail on July 14 on a parole violation.

    In March of 2017, an Amber Alert was issued and later cancelled after authorities said Stanley abducted his son. Court records show he was convicted on charges of trespassing and endangering children in 2017.

    Stanley was ordered to have no contact with Al Dulaimi or their son as part of his probation agreement.

    Al Dulaimi does not have any family in the United States. Her sister, who lives in Turkey, is currently trying to obtain an emergency visa to come to Ashtabula to help look for her sister and care for her nephew.

    Al Dulaimi’s parents live in Iraq. They said they wanted to express their thanks to everyone who is helping to look for their daughter and keeping their grandson safe.

    Ashtabula Children’s Services said 2-year-old Omar is safe and that the agency does have an open case with the family.

    The Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Office said they are actively working the case, but would not release any further information. The FBI confirmed it is also assisting with this case.

    Sister of missing Ashtabula mother: 'Maybe he hurt her because he's crazy'

    We are learning more about a missing Ashtabula mom and much of it is coming from her sister who lives overseas.

    Rula Al Dulaimi said she spoke with her sister, Rand Al Dulaimi, every day. The last time they spoke was just days before Rand was reported missing.

    Rand said at the time that she was picking up her son from her estranged husband’s home. She did not call or answer anymore after that.

    Al Dulaimi's ex-husband, 28-year-old Jeffrey A. Stanley, has been named a person of interest in her disappearance, but police say he has not been charged. Stanley was arrested on a parole violation July 14.

    Crews have spent the last three days searching the air and ground for signs of Al Dulaimi. They've combed through wooded areas near Stanley's Ninevah Road home, using helicopters to search some spots.

    Sheriff's Office: Body found during search for missing Ashtabula mother

    A body was found Tuesday during the search for a missing mother, the Ashtabula County Sheriff's Department confirms.

    The body was found in a wooded area in Saybrook Township near North Bend and Nineveh Roads.

    According to Sheriff Bill Johnson, they are awaiting information from the coroner's office before positively identifying the body.

    "But we are no longer searching," the sheriff added.

    Investigators from the sheriff's department, the Bureau of Criminal Investigations, and FBI agents have focused their intense search by air, and on the ground, in the wooded areas around the home of Al Dulaimi's estranged husband, Jeffrey Stanley. Investigators said that she was last seen at Stanley's home on Nineveh Road, about a mile from where the body was found Tuesday night.

    Stanley was named a "person of interest" in the case, and was arrested last week for an unrelated parole violation. He is currently being held in the Ashtabula County jail.

    Another estranged husband is the person of interest. I wish there was something we could do to stop domestic violence!

    Sister of Ashtabula mother found dead desperately trying to come to America to say goodbye

    Family and friends of the Ashtabula mother who went missing in July and was later found dead are doing everything they can to get her a proper burial. Her family lives across the world, and her friends in Northeast Ohio are trying to help them say goodbye.

    Rand Al Dulaimi moved to Ashtabula from Turkey after she got married — she has no family in the United States.

    Her older sister Rula Al Dulaimi, who is an Iraqi refugee living in Turkey, has been trying desperately to secure an emergency visa to come to Ashtabula to bury her sister and take care of her 2-year-old nephew Omar, who is currently in the custody of children's services.

    “I need to come, to see him and to take care of him because he doesn’t have anyone from his family with him,” Al Dulaimi said during an interview over video chat. “Because, you know, we lose Rand. We don’t want to lose Omar.”


    Congressman David Joyce’s office told News 5 that it sent a letter on Rula Al Dulaimi’s behalf on July 27 after being contacted by an Ashtabula County Commissioner asking that her embassy meeting be expedited. That request for a 214b visa was denied. However, Al Dulaimi can apply for a humanitarian parolee visa. She is currently working with a Cleveland immigration attorney.

    The case is now in the State Department’s hands, which said it could not discuss any specific cases to maintain confidentiality.

    Al Dulaimi said she does not want to stay in America long, she just wants to say goodbye.

    “I just want to see my sister one last time. I want to bury her,” Al Dulaimi said tearfully.

    Stanley pleads not guilty Saybrook man accused of killing ex-wife

    An Ashtabula County man pleaded not guilty Friday to charges he murdered his ex-wife.

    Jeffrey A. Stanley was arraigned Friday in the death of Rand Hilal Al Dulaimi, who went missing for two weeks last summer before her body was found July 24 not far from Stanley's home in Saybrook.

    Stanley, 28, faces two counts of murder, unclassified felonies; one county of felonious assault, a second-degree felony; tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony; gross abuse of a corpse, a fifth-degree felony, and domestic violence, a first-degree misdemeanor, said Ashtabula County Common Pleas Judge Gary Yost, who presided over the arraignment.

    Wearing an orange jail jumpsuit, Stanley appeared in Yost's courtroom flanked by his court-appointed attorney, Christopher Boeman of Willoughby.

    If convicted of the charges, Stanley faces life in prison, said Ashtabula County Prosecutor Nicholas Iarocci.

    Stanley gets 11 years for child porn

    The suspect in the murder of an Ashtabula woman will remain behind bars for more than 11 years on a separate child pornography charge, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

    Jeffrey Stanley, 28, of Ninevah Road, Saybrook Township, pleaded guilty in December in the United States District Court Northern District of Ohio to being in receipt of visual depictions of real minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, according to court filings. Stanley, who is in federal custody, was sentenced Monday to 11 years and three months in prison and a lifetime of supervision after his release, Ashtabula County Prosecutor Nicholas Iarocci said Thursday.



    Iarocci said his office will "continue to aggressively prosecute the murder case against Stanley."
