WASHINGTON — She asked for help from a police officer who lived nearby, and Prince George’s County police said the good deed cost him his life. For the first time, the public is hearing from the widow of the accused killer.
On her Facebook page, the widow of suspected shooter Glenn Tyndell posted a message and photos grieving for her deceased husband and Cpl. Mujahid Ramzziddin, her neighbor.
Police believe Tyndell shot Ramzziddin five times with a shotgun when the officer tried to protect her in Brandywine, Maryland, last week.
The online post from Tyndell’s widow reads, in part: “While I endured painful times during our relationship, it was only when the pain was directed to our children was when I had to end my loyalty to our vows and start protecting our children.”
The two were married, according to the Facebook post, more than a year and a half and had at least one child together. Tyndell also had a previous marriage and was in a custody battle with an ex-wife, according to court records.
His widow continued to offer her thanks to Ramzziddin’s family in her post, “I pray for the Ramzziddiw’s [sic] family and thank Cpl. Ramzziddiw [sic] for saving my life and allowing me to see my children again.”
