Although two men were purportedly involved in the attack, police say they are not seeking a second suspect.

You know how police are allowed to release misinformation in order to aid in the apprehension of a suspect? This may be one of those times.

I felt the article left lots of details out. Don't know if it's intentional or just bad writing. Perhaps there'll be follow-ups?

We've got a wee bit of an MS-13 gang problem brewing in these parts.  The suspect is the right age and ethnic background to be a member.  While MS-13 is more stabby-rapey than beisbol-rapey, she was 17 and, well, "assaulted" here may not just be the beating part of this.  While I agree hate crime is the leader in the club house, garden variety Central American ultraviolence has to be considered.

As opposed to loan sharks? Bookies? Drug money?

FTA:
"Our detectives are fairly certain that it is her," Fairfax police spokesperson Tawny Wright told Buzzfeed. "But the Chief Medical Examiner still needs to conduct an autopsy to confirm the identity."

Sounds like: everything matches, face beaten beyond recognition.

Let me try that last sentence again:
/not sure what the "in Ramadan nonetheless" angle in the article means.
//Would bigots hate Muslims less during Ramadan?!

2017-06-19 07:35:40 AM  
This story has a few more details.  Police are saying the attack came after "a dispute," so at this time they're not classifying this as a hate crime.  Presumably the information they have does not indicate the dispute arose out of differences of religion or ethnicity, or as suggested above this could be misdirection to aid an investigation.

Other articles I've read make it seem a sex crime just as likely as a hate crime.

Standard attack against women by a man.

Not down playing the hate crime angle at all, but as a women, my first though it was just another violent attack against a lone women, who just happened to be muslim. Glad the police are investigating for motive though- put this piece of shiat behind bars for as long as possible.

It's very early on in the investigation and there weren't very many tweets available to cut and paste. I'm sure they'll be updating the article when more Twitter users have a chance to comment.

if it's an anti-gun hate crime in Sterling, the perp had better hide.   That area is these days majority Indian/Pakistani/ Iraqi/Persian.    Sterling has youth cricket leagues that draw better than the soccer or football ones, and in one shopping center there are no less than five separate kebab restaurants
