Yusufiy says the abuse started just a few weeks into the marriage. Upon telling her parents, they came and got Yusufiy. After that, Yusufiy says she never spoke to Mateen again. Their divorce became finalized in 2011, which is 2 years before Mateen’s first run in with the FBI.



Sitora Yusufiy said that the two met online about eight years ago and she decided to move to Florida to marry him. She also said the marriage was normal at first but then Mateen became abusive.

She stated that “he was not a stable person” and she fears for her safety in the heat of what is going on.

“He beat me. He would just come home and start beating me up because the laundry wasn’t finished or something like that.”
