What possible motive existed for a killing? Apparently, Sandeela Kanwal had recently married in Pakistan. It was an arranged marriage with the husband living in Chicago. Despite the marriage, Kanwal remained living at her father's home near Atlanta. According to police, Sandeela did not want to be married to the man from Chicago. According to police reports, this created conflict between Sandeela and her father.
Girls, being married to a jerk or someone you don't love can be a real pain in the neck. But if you got family members who may fly off the handle, it may be better to live with a pain in the neck then die by strangulation.
