Shahriar Zolfaghari was the husband of Georgia assistant attorney general Camila Wright and father of their 1-year-old daughter, Zoya. He was tragically murdered at the beginning of June, but his wife vividly remembers seeing him in their home before his death in the streets of Atlanta.

Zolfaghari was a stay-at-home dad during the day and worked as a Lyft driver at night. The night he died, he sent Wright a text around midnight saying that he missed her and their daughter. Wright expected him to be home around 2 a.m. But she woke up at 4 a.m. to see that he wasn't there.

"I could've sworn he came home," she told AP. "I was so confused because I really remember him coming home and giving me a kiss."

Worried, she began to attempt to contact him and called detectives she knows through work to help look for him. What police found would change her and her daughter's lives forever.

Zolfaghari had been shot in the upper torso. He was found dead in his car in Atlanta around 1 a.m. and his credit cards and ID were still on him, according to AP. Because he wasn't robbed, police still don't know the motive behind his tragic murder.

A Lyft spokesperson issued a statement saying:

"Our heartfelt sympathies are with the family and loved ones of Shahriar Zolfaghari. Lyft has been working closely with law enforcement and will continue to assist their investigation."
