When Suzan was murdered, controversy broke out in Egypt, Lebanon and the UAE, which was where the crime took place. The Dubai police had found Suzan murdered in her apartment and when Muhsin was arrested he confessed that Hisham had offered him two million US dollars to kill Suzan.
Reports had it that Suzan and Hisham were intimately involved while she resided in Egypt but they broke up when she decided to move to the UAE. It was added that Hisham wanted to get back at Suzan for leaving him and so arranged to have her killed.
