After moving from her native India, Arpana Jinaga was quick to jump into American culture, say those who knew her. On her first Halloween in Redmond, she played the role of party hostess by opening up her apartment to friends, neighbors and strangers. On Oct. 31, 2008, the 24-year-old software programmer hosted more than two dozen people who rotated between her apartment and three others, said Redmond police Detective Brian Coats. Among the people she met that night was a man who, unbeknown to her, was a violent sex offender, Coats said.
Hours later, the same man broke down Jinaga’s door, gagged and raped her, and then strangled her, Coats said. The man then poured motor oil he found inside her home and caustic chemicals on her body in an apparent effort to conceal evidence, police said. On Friday, King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg announced that Emanuel Fair, who also goes by the name Anthony P. Parker, has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with Jinaga’s 2-year-old slaying.
