Meet Youssef Khater, One Of The Subjects Of Netflix’s Worst Roommate Ever
Danish marathon runner, Youssef Khater is one of the subjects of Netflix’s Worst Roommate Ever. In 2011, police arrested him for the attempted murder of Texan housemate Callie Quinn and defrauding several people out of thousands of dollars. As the story goes, he posed as a Palestinian marathon runner and boasted that the Federacion Palestina de Chile sponsored him to set a record by running the 2653-mile length of Chile.
He also claimed members of the Federacion Palestina, Carlos Medina, and Carlos Krauss gave him $8000 for that. However, the organizers reportedly disqualified him after they noticed a muscle tear in his leg. But, the medical examination revealed otherwise so he stopped returning their calls.
According to Texas Monthly, Youssef lured Callie to a tire shop and hit her over the head with a toilet seat, before burying her alive. But, Callie survived the incident and reported to the police. Their roommate also accused them of borrowing money from her and the other two Mexican students.
Then, they also learned that Youssef had borrowed $50k ($12000 of athletic gear and given him $38,000 to jointly buy a property) from British runner Dominic Rayner. Dominic confronted Youssef to claim what he owed but Youssef plotted a hike was physically attacked the British runner but only caused minimum harm.
Later, Youssef “begged him not to tell anyone what had happened” according to the Texas Monthly article.
Youssef was reportedly arrested in 2009 but failed to appear on trial in Jan. 2011. He was wanted for arson, embezzlement, forgery, and fraud. But, police got hold of him on 9 August that year after setting him up for a wire transfer. He initially insisted that he wasn’t responsible for attacking Callie but later confessed. But, he told he had no intention of killing her.
