Though apparently not linked to terrorism, it will certainly beg questions.
And now the United States can join Syria and Algeria as the site of recent beheadings. While this one seems to have come as a result of a workplace dispute rather than some uber-fanatical misinterpretation of Islam. A British national famously beheaded to journalists who were taken captive in Syria and held for some time, a British national that FBI director, James Comey, said yesterday has been identified.
This seems to be a not only a whole other animal, but occurred where animals are processed.
Oklahoma man beheaded a woman after a workplace dispute
Apparently, An Oklahoma man has had a workplace dispute at a Vaughan Foods processing plant in Moore, Oklahoma. Moore is located roughly 10 miles south of Oklahoma City.
Law enforcement has told CNN that the man then chose to behead her and also tried to kill another woman. No details were given as to whether the attempted murder occurred before or after the beheading.
Police arrived at the scene with a sheriff’s deputy shot the suspect whom they identified as 30-year-old Alton Alexander Nolan.
He was taken to a nearby hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.
Given the current situation with the ISIS, this will unfortunately be widely reported around the world today.
Police have not verified the fact that the first victim’s head actually left her body but numerous news sources have including CNN.
Reports are suggesting that the man drove to the Vaughan Foods processing plant at around 4:30AM, stepped from his car and attacked the first two people he saw.
While CNN has said that a sheriff’s deputy shot the man, The New York Daily News is reporting that is was an off-duty policeman working as a security guard who ended the rampage.
The second victim is currently in critical condition in a hospital.
While the police called it a work place dispute it’s not clear that Nolan worked at the plant.
He has a criminal record dating to 2011 and has been arrested on a number of charges including possession of a controlled substance, assault and battery on a police officer and escape from detention.
