El Cajon police are asking for the public's help in its investigation into the fatal beating of an Iraqi immigrant and have not ruled out the possibility that Shaima Alawadi was the victim of a hate crime. Near the body of the 32-year-old Alawadi, police found what has been described as a threatening note.
