EL CAJON, Calif. — A 32-year-old woman from Iraq who was found severely beaten next to a threatening note saying "go back to your country" died on Saturday.
Shaima Alawadi's 17-year-old daughter found her unconscious Wednesday morning in the dining room of the house in El Cajon, police Lt. Steve Shakowski said.
Hanif Mohebi, the director of the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said he met with Alawadi's family members Saturday morning and was told the mother of five was taken off life support around 3 p.m.
"The family is in shock at the moment. They're still trying to deal with what happened," Mohebi said.

"A hate crime is one of the possibilities and we will be looking at that. We don't want to focus on only one issue and miss something else."
Sura Alzaidy, a family friend, told UT San Diego the note told the family to "go back to your own country. You're a terrorist."
