oadside robber masquerading as a stranded motorist killed a University of Central Florida student when he fought back, according to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office in Alabama.
The 22-year-old victim was identified as Adam Simjee of Apopka, Florida, and he was traveling with his girlfriend, Mikayla Paulus, 20, who witnessed the killing, the sheriff’s office said in a press release.
It happened around 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 14, as the couple were driving through Talladega National Forrest, a mile from Cheaha State Park, officials said. The park is about 80 miles east of Birmingham, Alabama.
The two were flagged down by a woman, “later identified as Yasmine Hider,” the sheriff’s office reported.
“Hider asked the couple if they could give her some assistance to get her car started, which was nearby,” officials said. “When the couple attempted to assist Hider, she produced a gun and made the couple walk back into the woods.”
Once they were in the woods, Simjee revealed he was armed and the two exchanged gunfire as Paulus looked on, officials said.
Both Simjee and Hider were struck by gunfire, officials said.
Mikayla noticed a second woman, “later identified as Krystal Diane Pinkins, standing in the woods nearby observing what was going on,” the sheriff’s office said.

Mental note to self… as soon as a gun is displayed assume the position that only deadly force will get you out of the situation.
Had to look elsewhere for a photo of the perp, no suprise.
Yep. It’s pretty much impossible to help people nowadays....and that goes for intersection panhandlers as well.
Hitchhikers?.....it’s been decades since I’ve picked one up and even then I made ‘em ride in the bed of my truck.
“Had to look elsewhere for a photo of the perp”
When I saw no pics or even a description of the perps I knew......dead give away.
It’s been decades since I even saw one. People know not to do it anymore.
I will not stop to help anyone....I call 911 and report the place of the person and let the State Troopers handle it!!!
they thought they could get some quick money from the crackers......
Word of this kind of stuff seems to be getting around and is serving to beat the Good Samaritan impulse (i.e., the impulse tward true Christian charity) out of people.
Horrible and very sad.
Meanwhile libraries full of data showing that the vexxine offers zero health benefit and huge health risks go “unread” and unheeded, probably by those same scared rabbits who are coldly driving past people who need a battery jump in a supermarket parking lot.
If you’re in Alberta headed to Alaska or something, I’ll still stop and help you. Already found one young lady trying to get away from a guy. Read that one quick and kept acting clueless and managed to get her out of the car and delay her while I was texting some close by people. Arab driver wouldn’t even make eye contact with me.
We have tons of transients in my state....they’re fearless......and the drugs don’t hurt either.
The name was a dead giveaway.🙄
The killer needs to be executed. Publicly, live-streamed on FB.
A friend found the body of one of his friends up in the woods after searching for a week with others. Turned out he was killed by a meth head using the same ploy. Woman at a remote camping spot asks for help, boyfriend stepped out from a tree and killed him with a shotgun. Stole his car, etc.
Recently I was out in the woods and saw a car stuck. I was debating what to do (no cell service). The guy came over and while talking to him I had my hand resting on my gun visible in my chest harness. He seemed normal enough and didn’t pay any attention to my gun.
I let him walk in front to his car and show me what was going on, and my head on a swivel. He was high centered on a rock. I went back to my truck and got out a good jack while he was looking for more rocks to pile up. He did all of the work while I stood by.
Avoid violence and death....stay away from Black people.
Hard to tell from this account, but it sounds like the victim tried to be rational and let the perp know he was armed, probably in an attempt to deescalate or negotiate. Ummm, not sure how I would handle it, but if someone pulls a gun on me, I am not going to hesitate. My life is in imminent jeopardy. I'm going to shoot first and let the cops sort it out.
