According to the New York Daily News, an Oklahoma man stabbed and beheaded one of his former coworkers.
The suspect, Alton Nolen stormed into his place of employment, a food plant on Thursday and attacked multiple people. Nolen stabbed the first victim, Colleen Hufford so hard in the neck that her head was severed. After attacking Hufford, Nolen attacked Traci Johnson next. Johnson was stabbed multiple times by Nolen before an off-duty cop shot him. Moore police officers said,
“This suspect was angry about some sort of incident that happened at the business, these women really had nothing to do with that. He was just acting out against them. They are the first people he came in contact with.”
Nolen was fired right before the initial attack. He drove from the building where he was fired to the main distribution center and attacked.
The FBI is investigating the entire incident. The Daily News believes his recent conversion to Islam may have something to do with the attack. There have been multiple beheadings by Islamist extremists overseas in the last few weeks. However, the newspaper has no real evidence to prove that his new religious background had anything to do with the attacks.
Noel is now in stable condition after being shot by the off duty cop. He will be charged on Monday with first-degree murder, assault and battery with a deadly weapon and possible federal charges.
