Woman who said she was nicked for being ‘good looking’ suspected of killing mum

A woman who once claimed she was being arrested for being too "too good looking" is suspected of killing her mum.

Hend Bustami from Las Vegas is believed to have murdered her mother following an argument in the early hours of Wednesday (October 26) morning.

The 28-year-old was arrested near Barstow, California, at about 5:30am after she is believed to have called Las Vegas police three hours earlier to report that her mother was dead, Fox 5 Vegas reported.

“At approximately 2:30 in the morning, a 911 dispatcher received a phone call from a frantic female stating that her mother was dead,” Las Vegas Metropolitan police Lt. Dave Valenta told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“Then the line was disconnected,” he added.

Police attended the property where they discovered the 62-year-old woman, who suffered multiple lacerations and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Homicide detectives determined that the victim had been involved in a verbal dispute with her daughter, later identified as Bustami, police said.

She was expected to be extradited back to Nevada and charged with open murder, authorities said.

Bustami originally made the headlines earlier this year after she accused cops of arresting her for being "too good looking".

On August 31, Bustami reportedly left a Chili’s Tex-Mex outpost at Harry Reid International Airport without paying her bill.

Las Vegas police found the self-described “hospitality professional” sleeping “near the security checkpoint, hindering their operations.”

Bustami was eventually arrested by the baggage claim, where an arrest report said she appeared intoxicated and was “belligerent” with officers.

Bustami claimed “‘she was being harassed because cops [had] never seen anyone as pretty as her,’” police said.

Authorities eventually learned the young woman had another outstanding warrant from Las Vegas Municipal Court. It was unclear what these charges were.

While being arrested, Bustami threatened to “‘spit on all [the officers]’” while saying that “‘officers were perverts and were trying to rape her because they [had] never seen anyone as good-looking,’” according to the report.

She was booked on misconduct charges.
