UK woman beheaded in Tenerife supermarket attack

A tragic attack on someone who was just doing some shopping.

A British woman has been beheaded in what appears to be a random attack in a Tenerife supermarket in Spain’s Canary Islands.

Witnesses said a man entered a Chinese supermarket in the Valdes Shopping Centre and stabbed then beheaded the 62-year-old UK woman without saying a word. He is said to have dropped the head outside before being tackled by security guards.

Spanish media are reporting that the attacker is a homeless Bulgarian man and he had been arrested in the town of Los Cristianos. It appears the man chose his victim at random.

“Apparently this gentleman without any motive or any reason… entered the shop and then cut this woman’s neck and took the head in his hand outside,” said local councillor Manuel Reveron.

A security guard then managed to wrestle the man to the ground, he said.

“I parked my car and saw a man running out with something bloody in his hands and a security guard chasing him,” one witness was quoted as telling local radio.

“He threw it to the ground, it almost hit me and what he had been carrying was a woman’s head.”

In a video posted on YouTube, Colin Kirby of Tenerifemagazine.com said security guards held down the suspect until the police arrived.

“The security and the police had to hold people off – they were queuing up – they were trying basically to kick the hell out of the guy,” he said.

Police sources told Spanish media the suspect had a police record.

Newswarped would like to know why a homeless Bulgarian man with a police record is allowed to live in a tourist destination like the Canary Islands.

UPDATE:The British woman stabbed and beheaded in a shop on the Spanish island of Tenerife has been named by her family as 60-year-old Jennifer Mills-Westley.

Her daughter Sarah said she was “full of life, generous of heart and would do anything for anyone”.

She said her mother was enjoying her retirement, travelling between Tenerife and France and visiting her other daughter in Norfolk.

We are hoping this is not a lethal combination of lax EU immigration rules and PC notions about the mentally disturbed needing to live in normal society.
