How shocking!

Just heard the dreadful story, about a 62 year-old woman being beheaded by a madman in a holdiay resort.

If, I'd written about an incident like that and added it to one of my books, I think the reviewers would have a field day. That wouldn't happen, it's total fabrication, etc.

Well, it just goes to show, you never know what's around the corner!


  1. . . . or in the canned beans section. o.O

  2. Yeah, I read that, too, was just in the Canary Islands not long ago. Creepy!

  3. It is pretty scary that something so awful could happen somewhere so mundane (the supermarket I mean, not Tenerife)

  4. Hacking off someone's head is not easy even with a large sharp blade. To do it with a knife??? I wonder if he was on something?

    People on PCP sometimes gouge chunks out of their own bodies trying to dig out imaginary insects. From the sound of it, the man was delusional, if not from drugs then probably schizophrenic. Schizophrenics aren't normally dangerous though.

    ...and I'm very morbid.

  5. Jimmie, you have a point.

    What makes it worse is that the man escaped!

  6. OMG. Mad people in a mad world. :/
