She was stabbed to death in a Muslim occupied area. This sounds more like an islamic hate crime. If they are sure that he was ‘mentally ill’ (a favorite term used by authorities for muslim atrocities) then why do they need to investigate the stabbing further?
American woman stabbed to death in Paris by a homeless man while visiting her daughter
- Cathleen Scherer McDonough, 52, was stabbed to death by a homeless man in the Parisian suburb of Montreuil on Thursday while photographing street art
- The Rye, New Hampshire resident was vising her daughter, who lives in France
- The suspect – who has not been named – was committed to a psychiatric hospital
Prosecutors say a woman from the United States who was visiting her daughter in a Paris suburb was attacked and stabbed to death by a homeless man.
The victim has been identified as 52-year-old Cathleen Scherer McDonough, of Rye, New Hampshire.
The prosecutor’s office in Seine-Saint-Denis says McDonough was photographing street art in Montreuil on Thursday when a homeless man stabbed her six times. The neighborhood has a large Malian expatriate community.
The ‘unbalanced’ suspect – who has not been named – was arrested and was committed to a psychiatric hospital, Le Fiargo reported.
Authorities continue to investigate the stabbing.
Phone, email and Facebook messages seeking comment were left with members of McDonough’s family on Monday.
Police in Rye said they have not been contacted by authorities in France or by members of the family.
McDonough’s sister, Stephanie Scherer Walker, asked for for privacy to grieve in a Facebook post.
‘The family respectfully asks for privacy at this time,’ she wrote. ‘A statement will be released at a time when we deem it necessary and have all of the facts.’
