I’m sure barbaric religious and third world moral values had absolutely noooooothing to do with this.
Sadly, in New York, it’s nearly impossible to get a cab driver who doesn’t share the same theological characteristics of the “Religion of Peace.” Best to leave early and take the bus or subway.
A Brooklyn livery driver apparently obsessed with a woman nearly half his age stabbed her to death, dismembered her body and packed the body parts in plastic bags inside his home, police said Monday.
Saleh Al-Muwallad, 53, was charged with second-degree murder in the grisly slaying Sunday night of Jessica Guidicci, 27, a home care attendant who lived near him in Coney Island that he knew from the frequent rides he used to give her in his car, police and her family said.
Al-Muwallad, who has no previous criminal record, stabbed Guidicci twice in the neck, cut up her body, then called 911, police said.
When officers arrived at his home, he had a chilling message for them: “I killed her – go inside,” police said.
Inside the bedroom were four heavy duty plastic bags.
One contained Guidicci’s torso, police said, and a second had her limbs. Other parts were in the third bag and her head was in the fourth, police said.
“He made statements implicating himself, including the fact he was angry at her for seeing another man,” said New York Police Department Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne.
The victim’s friends and relatives said she was not romantically involved with the suspect.
She had been dating the same man for nine years, they said, and knew Al-Muwallad only as a frequent passenger in his car.
“He was a cab driver we called and we knew happened to be obsessed with her,” said the victim’s mother, Lisa Guidicci. . . .
Police believe Guidicci got a ride from Al-Muwallad Sunday afternoon as she headed out to go to the bank.
Yes, honor killings aren’t just restricted to daughters, sisters, and actual wives and/or girlfriends. They can be perpetrated on the object of fantasies and crushes, too.
And that’s what apparently happened in this case.
Like I always say, not “Religion of Peace,” but Religion of Pieces. Unfortunately, in many cases, that’s a literal description.
