This unfortunate woman didn’t foolishly travel to one of those tragic regions of the middle east. She was on the sidewalk, near her own home, in the middle of the day:
A woman was beheaded Thursday in San Carlos, KRON4 has confirmed. She was killed in the area of Laurel Street and Magnolia Avenue at 11:50 a.m.
The woman was beheaded by a man with a sword. The suspect, an adult male, was detained and has since been placed under arrest for murder, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
The woman was 27 years old, KRON4 confirmed through a source. Authorities said the woman had two children; their ages were not disclosed.
San Mateo County authorities say the suspect and victim knew each other, and this incident is believed to be an isolated incident.
Isolated incident? Doesn’t that make you feel better? The perpetrator rarely beheads women.
All these isolated incidents are really starting to stack up. It seems that every major city is achieving new records in homicides, carjacking, and robbery. Criminals are so brazen, they even livestream their crimes on the internet. They have no fear of arrest, no fear of punishment … no fear of god, man or reason.
UPDATE: Jose Solano Landaeta, a former boyfriend of the dead mother, was arrested by police shortly after the incident for homicide, the victim has been identified by her family as Karina Castro.Published in
