The Chaldean community suffered another tragedy on Tuesday, May 1, 2012 when Faraj “Fred” Dally was gunned
down as he was opening his liquor store, the Medicine Chest in Detroit, as he has done nearly every day
for the past 30 years.
The Chaldean American Chamber of Commerce is offering a $10,000 reward to help find those who are responsible
for killing Fred.
Since 1970, more than 110 Chaldean store owners have been viciously murdered at their place of business
and hundreds more have been injured during a violent crime. Rest assured, your Chamber is taking action.
The Chaldean American Chamber of Commerce and the Chaldean Community Foundation hold the safety of
the store owners in our community in the highest regard. As a result, we teamed with the Murad family in 2005
to establish the Waad Murad Advocacy Fund where a $10,000 reward is posted for information leading to the
arrest and conviction of those responsible for fatal robberies. Since the fund’s inception, the Chaldean
Community Foundation has posted more than $50,000 in reward money, which helped solve two of these crimes.
Just in the past 14 months, we’ve posted rewards for the following murders:
Cronin’s Liquor and Wine – Mike Khmoro – an arrest was made
Dollar Club Plus – Karim Khamarko – reward now stands at $20,000
The Medicine Chest – Fred Dally – $10,000 added to the AFPD Foundation’s reward
Additionally, Chamber leadership routinely meets with legislators, law enforcement officials and civic and
community leaders to discuss the security and occupational hazards our store owners face during their daily
operations. We will continue to do as much as we can to prevent these heinous crimes and make sure
perpetrators are brought to justice.
