Stabbed, killed in a hospital parking garage at the end of her shift
I figured this was a domestic when I heard about it, and that has proven true. Regardless, the killing in broad daylight, whether by one you know or not, illustrates the need to be armed anytime and everywhere.
This occurred Tuesday afternoon in a very good neighborhood in a St. Louis suburb.
Facts: Couple going through a divorce, wife gets restraining order against husband.
Wife works at a hospital. Leaves work after her shift ends at 4:30 pm. She is found dead next to her car in the parking garage before 5 p.m. Emergency workers initially thought she had passed out from the heat.
Hours after she died, authorities admitted they still didn't know how she died. Eventually it was determined she had been stabbed over a dozen times. They didn't say, but I wonder if the murder weapon was something like an ice pick which would leave little evidence of being stabbed.
Husband reportedly confessed to killing her, and he is in custody.
As might be expected, the hospital is almost certainly a no-carry zone. So if she was confronted before she made it to her vehicle, which appears is what happened, then legally she was unable to be armed. I'm sure the fact that she was in compliance with the law is a relief to... well, no one other than her murderer. :rolleyes:
