Police had already responded to this doctor’s house 11 different times, generally because various women complained of being abused. Eventually, we’re guessing he killed one of them.
Aspiring model Gabrielle Roush was one. She has testified that she answered what she thought was a legitimate modeling ad. But when she arrived at the doctor’s house, she discovered he wanted to “pay me $400 so he could paint the human digestive system on my bare stomach.” She left the house immediately.
In Delaware County Ohio 44-year-old Doctor Ali Salim stands accused of Rape and Murder of a woman whom police believe he lured to his home on Craigslist.
His list of crimes, according to the district attorney, includes Rape, Felonious Assault, Corrupting Another with Drugs, Kidnapping, Evidence Tampering and Abuse of a Corpse.
According to a New Albany police press release, the body of 23-year-old Deanna Ballman was found in the backseat of her car in the woods outside of town on August 1. Ballman, who was nine months pregnant at the time of her death, was reported by friends to have gone to Salim’s home in response to an online advertisement for a housecleaner. Her body was located 48 hours later.
Autopsy reports reveal that Ballman’s cause of death was a heroin overdose. She also had morphine and codeine in her system at the time of death. Needle marks were found on her arms. and police believe Salim injected her with the drugs.
Detectives say Salim is the only suspect in Ballman’s death.
What is known in the case is that on July 31, 2012, Ballman told her mother that she was responding to a house-cleaning ad on Craigslist. At 3:30 that afternoon. Deanna Ballman called her mother and sounded “disoriented.” Ballman told her mother she wasn’t feeling well. The mother, whose name is Lori, told police that a man with a foreign accent took the phone from her daughter and asked if there was something he could do to help. The call was then disconnected, and Lori filed a missing person’s report.
In February 2013, Salim was arrested and charged with nine felonies. He is now out on a $1,000,000 bond and confined to house arrest.

This doctor is likely a Third World Assassin personified:
Salim, who graduated from Pakistan’s King Edward Medical College in 1993, was working at Knox Community Hospital in Mt. Vernon at the time of his arrest.
A little research shows that Salim has been luring women to his home for years by placing hundreds of ads on Craigslist seeking a woman with “no drama.”
Unfortunately, as is the case repeated over and over, this particular foreign-born physician emigrated to the U.S. and then managed to create a ton of drama. Ohio DMV records show this medical maniac has – among other missteps – racked up more than 15 speeding tickets in 10 years. But because he is an “MD” he continues to hold a valid driver’s license. He is employed due to the magic called “I’m a doctor with a Green Card.”
Bad doctors from other countries flood our borders.
Because when someone with the word “doctor” on their nametag walks into the room – or a country – otherwise sane people stop thinking.
Pity how America continues to create its own storms.
