The father of a woman whose body was found in a Staten Island park last year has been extradited from the Middle East and charged with her murder.

Suspect Kabary Salem had been indicted in the murder of his daughter, Ola Salem, 25, by a Staten Island grand jury Nov. 5, law enforcement sources told The Post.

The NYPD’s Regional Fugitive Task Force tracked him down Dec. 3, and brought him back to New York on Friday, sources said.

Salem had fled the U.S. immediately after his daughter’s body was discovered in October 2019 by a jogger in Bloomingdale Park, in the borough’s Prince Bay neighborhood.

The fully-clothed body had been dragged through the woods some 30 feet, then covered in leaves.

Salem, 52, is a former professional middleweight boxer from Egypt who went by the nickname “The Egyptian Magician” and who competed in the 1990s through early 2000s, including in the 1992 and 1996 Summer Olympics, according to his Wikipedia page.

Notoriously, Salem killed one opponent, Randie Carver, in the ring in Kansas City in Sept. 1999 after repeatedly headbutting the doomed man.

Carver never regained consciousness after being knocked out in the 10th round, and died two days later from blunt head trauma, according to Wikipedia.

The victim, who lived in Rosebank, had been an advocate for Muslim women suffering from domestic violence through her volunteer work at the New York City-based Asiyah Women’s Center, a 20-bed shelter and resource organization.
