Bryan Schmitt Murderer

Schmitt has maintained it was an accident, but investigators now believe the attorney deliberately plowed into Jahangard in a fit of fury.

The clash between the two men began when Schmitt’s expensive sedan was hit by a golf ball purportedly thrown by Jahangard, who was standing near several trash cans at the end of a large driveway belonging to one of the rental properties he owned in the area.

Schmitt says that when he heard the golf ball hit his Mercedes, he stopped and made a U-turn to confront Jahanhgard.

Police Investigation Hamid Jahangard Murder

Police say they found a golf ball at the scene, although there was no damage to Schmitt’s Mercedes.

They did not find Jahanhgard’s cellphone, despite the fact he had been speaking on it when he was struck down by the car.

A ‘Find my Phone’ tracking device led police to Schmitt’s house – where they found the cellphone under a windscreen wiper of the Mercedes.

That was one piece of evidence that prompted investigators to suspect that Schmitt had driven into Jahanhgard at a high speeds.
