Brother of Marine killed in attack outside Kabul airport last year committed suicide, mother says

“The ripple effect! I lost two sons in less than a year, both in August! Chappell wrote in a Facebook post.
Marine Corps Spear. Kareem M. Nikoui, 20, of Norco, California, was among dozens killed in the suicide bombing outside Hamid Karzai International Airport for which ISIS claimed credit. Nikoui was one of 13 US servicemen killed in the attack.

According to Chappell, Nikoui’s brother, Dakota Halverson, 28, “had expressed some of the things that bothered him and one of those things was the loss of his brother Kareem and how he just wanted to be with him again. . He still had a hard time believing he was actually gone.”

“He would sneak into the cemetery at night and sleep at Kareem’s resting place. He killed himself in front of a permanent memorial we have here in town for his brother Kareem,” she said.

According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, Halverson died Aug. 9 at Pikes Peak Park in Norco, Calif., about 28 miles southwest of San Bernardino.

“We have been in contact with the family and can confirm that Dakota Halverson is the brother of Marine Corps Cpl. Kareem M. Nikoui,” said Sgt. Brandi Swan of the Sheriff’s Department told CNN in an email. “Sadly, Dakota’s death has been ruled a suicide.”

A GoFundMe page created by Chappell to raise money for Dakota’s service raised more than $40,000 on Tuesday afternoon. The fundraising goal has been set at $20,000.

“Dakota Halverson was a loving son, brother and friend. The loss of his brother nearly a year ago proved too much to bear. Any donations for his burial and services would be greatly appreciated as he wanted to be buried next to his brother Kareem, who was killed on August 26, 2021 while serving his country. His family and I want to honor his wishes,” Chappell wrote on GoFundMe.
