The widow of a Lyft driver who was shot and killed last year in northeast Atlanta made an emotional plea on Thursday to find her husband's killer.
Holding their now 2-year-old daughter, Camilla Zolfaghari, asked anyone with information to come forward to police.
"It is the right thing to do. Shah definitely deserves it," said Zolfaghari.
June 1 marks one year since the death of Shahrair Zolfaghari in northeast Atlanta.
A motorist found Zolfaghari unresponsive in his vehicle around 1:15 a.m. at the corner of Rankin Street and Boulevard in northeast Atlanta. After officers pulled the 36-year-old from his car, they found that he had been shot.
EMS crews transported Zolfaghari to Atlanta Medical Center, where he died while in surgery.
Atlanta Police said on Thursday a reward of up to $35,000 has been offered for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for Zolfaghari's murder. They said they believe they have established a motive in the murder, but declined to release it.
Camilla Zolfaghari works as a Georgia Assistant Attorney General. Camilla Wright. She prosecutes human trafficking cases. Police do not believe Zolfaghari's death was related to his wife's work.
In a Thursday afternoon news conference, Wright, holding her young daughter, remembered her late husband.
"He was so big and so warm," she said. "All he ever wanted was a daughter, so I realized that he got all he ever wanted."
Wright said that in his final months, her husband had decided that he wanted to become a counselor.
"I miss his calming nature, and his advice," she said. "He just really had a gift with that, and I loved that about him."
Anyone with information related to the incident is asked to contact Detective J. Shephard at 404-617-3012 or Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-TIPS (8477).
