A Washington state podcast host who was killed by her stalker last week said she had a «deep-seated fear» for her safety, writing in a protective order that the man tormented and harassed her and her husband for months.

Zohreh Sadeghi requested that the order last «99 years» because the man, Ramin Khodakaramrezaei, 38, had shown «no indication that he will stop his terrifying and dangerous behavior after one year.»

«He has said many times that nothing short of his own death would make him leave me alone, so I would like the order to last as long as possible,» he said.

The order was filed on March 3, exactly one week before police said Khodakaramrezaei, a trucker from Texas, broke into Sadeghi’s home in Redmond, about 15 miles northeast of Seattle, and fatally shot her and her husband, Mohammad Milad Naseri. Sadeghi’s mother escaped and called 911 from a neighbor’s house.

Khodakaramrezaei died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Redmond police spokeswoman Jill Green said.

Apparently, the shooter met Sadeghi through a podcast he was doing. Green said the pair «struck up a kind of friendship» but Sadeghi cut it short because Khodakaramrezaei «started sending a lot of messages».

The protection order details the ordeal that began late last year. Sadeghi, 33, wrote that he began asking Khodakaramrezaei to leave her alone on November 6.

She said she blocked his phone number and social media accounts, but he used different numbers and fake accounts to keep communicating with her. In one day, she sent 82 messages through an app, she said.

Sadeghi said he had anxiety and insomnia due to the barrage of messages and voicemails from Khodakaramrezaei. She also believed that her threats hampered his recovery from back surgery in December.

She wrote in the order that the voicemails «would include him crying and begging me to pick him up, threatening to burn himself and the tree in front of my house, and also telling me to delete my Instagram account or make it public so he could see the content I post.»

“Mr. Khodakaramrezaei has fits of rage and is completely delirious. These delusions make me fear for my life and the lives of my loved ones,» the order read.

Khodakaramrezaei’s unrelenting threats included him contacting her husband, friends and neighbors, according to the document. She allegedly stayed at inns in Sadeghi’s neighborhood and would park on her street hoping to see her, she wrote.

Sadeghi’s husband said he and his wife feared that Khodakaramrezaei would harm them. Friends and neighbors of the couple could not immediately be reached Tuesday.

On at least one occasion in December, Khodakaramrezaei allegedly stopped by her house to drop off flowers, prompting Sadeghi to call the police. He continued to send her gifts through February, according to the document.

A warrant for Khodakaramrezaei’s arrest was issued on March 2, the same day King County District Court records show he was charged with misdemeanor stalking and two counts of harassing telephone calls. On March 3, a judge granted a temporary protection order against him and set a hearing for a full order.

Khodakaramrezaei, who was not present at the hearing, was ordered to hand over his weapons. Redmond police have said Khodakaramrezaei never received the warrant because he lived out of state and «we were unable to contact him.»

Redmond Police Chief Darrell Lowe called the murders «the absolute worst outcome for a stalking case.»

«This is the worst nightmare of every victim, every detective, every police chief,» he told a news conference.
