Ali Nasser Abulaban, nicknamed JinnKid, who became famous for his In Reel Life Skyrim videos on TikTok, was arrested for killing his 29-year-old wife Ana and close friend Rayburn Barron. Ali said that he killed both of them because he thought he was cheating on his wife with his friend Barron.
Police said they went to an apartment building in the city’s East Village last week, where they found the bodies of Abulaban’s wife, Ana, and her friend Rayburn Barron, NBC San Diego reported. Ali Nasser said he had been following his wife Ana since October 18, damaging a luxury apartment where his wife was staying late last week and installing an app on his daughter’s iPad so he could listen to the sounds in the house, according to the Assistant District Attorney’s report.
Allegedly, last Thursday afternoon, after Ali Nasser heard his wife talking to another man, he went to the apartment with a loaded gun and caught his friend Barron with his wife. It was learned that the phenomenon shot his friend Barron in the head after he fired three shots at close range in the neck, cheek, and back of the head. The cops claim that Abulaban was the one who called 911 and reported the murders.
Known as JinnKid, Abulaban became famous on platforms such as Reddit and 9GAG by shooting videos where NPCs in games made fun of artificial intelligence and animations. He had 955,000 followers on TikTok and 170,000 on YouTube for the past few years. The last video Jinnkid uploaded 1 week before the event was an imitation of Tony Montana from Scarface.
Abulaban is currently awaiting a preliminary hearing on January 5, without bail.
