The Buckhead Lamborghini Murder

Posted on | October 20, 2021 | Comments Off on The Buckhead Lamborghini Murder

If you’ve been paying attention to news from Atlanta lately, you know that the prestigious Buckhead district, one of the wealthiest ZIP codes in the South, is seeking to secede from the city, because crime has gotten totally out of control. So last week — Monday, Oct. 10 — there appeared in Atlanta media this weird report:

Police are trying to determine if a woman who died after being ejected from a Lamborghini in Buckhead was pushed out of the moving car.
Investigators said late Monday night the 28-year-old metro Atlanta woman, later identified as Catherine Khan, started fighting with a man. At some point, they both got into the Lamborghini, where police say the altercation continued.
When the vehicle reached the Buckhead intersection of the Peachtree Road and Piedmont Road, the woman was ejected from the Lambo.
Paramedics rushed her to Grady Memorial Hospital, where doctors sadly couldn’t save her life. Police said she wasn’t shot, stabbed, or run over by any other vehicles.
Detectives said it’s too early to know if the victim was pushed out of the Lamborghini or maybe jumped to escape the fight. They’re looking at nearby surveillance video and talking to witnesses, hoping to piece together what happened.

The victim, Catherine Khan, is a woman of Middle Eastern ancestry who was described in some outlets as an “Instagram model,” and this all seemed mysterious. I mean, Buckhead is pretty affluent, but how many Lamborghinis do you see on Peachtree Street? And this story that Khan was “fighting with a man” made it seem as if it might be some kind of relationship problem. But it turned out to be related to a theft outside the Buckhead restaurant where Khan worked as a bartender:

A warrant is revealing new details in connection to the death of a woman, who a witness said, was thrown out of a moving Lamborghini to her death.
According to a warrant from Fulton County, 31-year-old Alfred Megbuluba is accused of taking a wallet belonging to 28-year-old Catherine Khan before her death.
Inside the wallet, there was money valued under $1,500 and Khan’s credit cards, according to the warrant. The warrant states he later tried to use her card at a Chevron gas station shortly before her death.
Hours after turning himself in to Atlanta Police, Megbuluba made his first court appearance, where he was denied bond. At the hearing, Megbuluba’s attorney Steve Sadow waived the reading of the arrest warrant. . . .
The warrant further states, “Alfred Megbuluba, did commit the offense of murder when he unlawfully and with malice aforethought pushed Catherine Kahn out of his vehicle while it was in motion. Catherine died as a result of her injuries from being pushed out of the vehicle.”
Megbuluba faces felony murder, theft by taking, and financial transaction card theft charges.

In some ways, this only adds to the mystery: How is this guy, who lives in Lilburn in suburban Gwinnett County, driving a Lamborghini? And if you’re rich enough to be driving a Lambo, how is it that you’re stealing a woman’s wallet and using her credit card to buy gas?

And, really, if Lamborghinis are not commonplace on Peachtree Street, they’re certainly not seen very often in Lilburn. Something tells me we’re going to be learning a lot more about the background of Alfred Megbuluba who, needless to say, is not a native of Georgia. It appears that in 2015, he registered an LLC consulting company in Nevada, but that license lapsed in 2017 for some reason. I don’t know what kind of “consulting” he was involved in, but if he could afford a Lamborghini, it must have been quite lucrative. We shall see . . .
