Wasserman was playing with her great-grandson the afternoon on Dec. 23, 2017. Family left her alone at her apartment in The Tradition-Prestonwood around 3:30 p.m. When her family came back about 8 p.m., they found her lying on her bed, fully clothed and unresponsive.
According to a police report, officers at the time “found no evidence of foul play.”
Later, however, police told the family that Google tracking data put Chemirmir in the area of Wasserman’s apartment from 3:05 to 4:31 p.m. that day.
Chemirmir is in the Dallas County Jail in lieu of a $11.6 million bail. He has an Immigration and Customs Enforcement hold as he is in the country illegally.
Quentin Brogdon, an attorney representing Wasserman’s family, said that it’s unlikely Chemirmir will be charged in the new case but that there is strong evidence that he killed his client’s grandmother.
“The timeline and the circumstances surrounding Doris Wasserman’s death leave no doubt, whatsoever, that Doris Wasserman was yet another preventable, unfortunate victim of Billy Chemirmir,” Brogdon said in an email. “This lawsuit is being filed to hold The Tradition legally accountable for the foreseeable criminal acts of Chemirmir, a vicious predator who was emboldened, enabled and empowered by The Tradition.”
Chemirmir was arrested in March 2018 in connection with the death of a Dallas woman and the attempted killing of two older women in Plano and Frisco. Plano police then announced they would review hundreds of death reports to look for connections.
Since then, police have charged Chemirmir with 11 counts of capital murder. Six other alleged victims have been identified in civil lawsuits against The Tradition, not including Wasserman.
