I’m sick to death of stories giving the human side to murderers, only a minute fraction of people bullied as youths commit atrocities like this.
Oh, and by the way, no one is buying into the the ”mental health issues, since almost every single instance of jihadi murder in the West is accompanied with such claims.
Russell Square ‘knifeman’, 19, was ‘a quiet, shy pupil who was bullied at his London school’, it is revealed as the victim is named as a US professor’s wife who was on her last night in the UK
Retired teacher Darlene Horton, 64 (right), was due to return to America with her professor husband today but died after being brutally stabbed by a crazed knifeman in Russell Square on Wednesday night. The keen tennis player has spent the last few weeks in the UK with her husband, psychology lecturer Richard Wagner, as part of a summer study programme and was due to return to the US later. However, she died in the mass stabbing in Russell Square when the Somali-born attacker walked up to his unsuspecting victims and slashed them with a kitchen knife.
He was Tasered to the ground by police and arrested (inset) Ms Horton’s last words were ‘he’s still here’ as she tried to warn others of the threat they faced. Witnesses said her shocked husband sobbed nearby as her body lay sprawled on the pavement (bottom right).
Last night it emerged that the man accused of murdering Ms Horton to death and injuring five others was a ‘quiet, shy pupil who was bullied at his London secondary school’. Zakaria Bulhan, 19, (left as a schoolboy) moved to the UK from Norway in 2002, and was suffering ‘mental health issues’.
As well as killing Ms Horton, the knifeman also injured Israeli holidaymaker Yovel Levkowki, 18 (right), who was slashed across the hand as she approached him to offer help after believing he was a victim. She said she was ‘lucky to be alive’.
