Beheading in Moore, Oklahoma

Posted By on Fri, Sep 26, 2014 at 4:09 PM

Horrifying story from Moore, Oklahoma, where 30-year-old Alton Nolen allegedly beheaded a coworker after being fired from his job at a food processing plant. He seriously injured another co-worker. NBC News reports

A fired Oklahoma food processing plant employee who proselytized for Islam beheaded a co-worker and seriously injured another before the owner of the plant shot and wounded him, police said Friday. Moments after Alton Nolen, 30, was let go from Vaughan Foods in Moore, he drove to another part of the facility and walked into a front office where he attacked 54-year-old Colleen Hufford, police said.

He used a "standard" knife — similar to the ones found at the facility — to allegedly behead Hufford. Then, he used the same knife to repeatedly stab Traci Johnson, 43, who suffered numerous wounds and remained in stable condition Friday, police said. "He obviously was trying to kill her, too," Moore police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said at a news conference. He added that Nolen had no relationship with either victim, who were simply in his way when he flew into a rage.

Classy reaction from an Arkansas Tea Party activist:
