Fana Belay was a 32-year-old Eritrean immigrant who was stabbed to death by Anthony J. Simpson in her apartment in the Edsall Garden Apartments in Alexandria on September 27. 1995.
Simpson evidently mistook Belay for his child's babysitter and attacked her when she opened the door to her apartment, stabbing her several times in front of her 8-year-old daughter.
