According to police reports, Alghazali ran a red light on Saturday night, striking a vehicle which overturned on Jack Lanzillotti, 28, and Jessica Campbell, 27, both of whom were pronounced dead at the scene.
Eyewitnesses say Lanzillotti and Campbell were walking down a sidewalk on Beacon Street when a black sports utility vehicle ran a red light, hitting a silver Volkswagen, causing it to flip over. This tragic incident has sent shockwaves through the tightly knit Boston community.
“As a person, she was dynamic and amicable and witty,” Campbell’s manager Leon Nicholas said. “She had a long, long runway in front of her. Her opportunity to rise as a star within our company and for our clients was just boundless.”
“When you find someone that has that passion and that talent and that spark and that commitment, you want to protect them, and we’re crushed by this loss,” Charles Steinberg said.
Campbell worked as a senior analyst for Kantar Retail for the past 3 years. Her boss and coworkers were devastated by the news, saying she could never be replaced. Leon Nicholas, Campbell’s manager, noted that Campbell had become good friends with his 10-year-old daughter, whom called her “Miss Jessica.”
Lanzillotti worked as a video and entertainment producer for Fenway Park where he managed the scoreboard. He won an Emmy Award for previous work in the entertainment field. Friends and colleagues of Lanzillotti were equally as shocked and devastated by this incident.
Allston, Massachusets native Alfageeh has initially told investigators that he was driving the black SUB at the time of the incident. However, police believe it was Alghazali who was driving. According to police reports, Alghazali and Alfageeh are currently married.
Investigators later discovered that Alghazali was driving without a license, which would merit reason for Alfageeh to claim he was driving at the time of the incident. Police were hesitant to confirm whether or not Alfageeh had been taken into custody. Some media outlets report that police are still looking for Alfageeh.
Alfageeh’s license was suspended following the incident, which is routine protocol involving fatal automobile accidents.
It’s unclear if either Alfageeh or Alghazali have sought legal representation for these charges.
