New information released following an autopsy on the victim, Colleen Hufford, 58, beheaded in September by a Muslim co-worker/terrorist, indicates that she fought to the death. According to official reports, Hufford wasn’t just an innocent victim who didn’t put up a fight – she fought valiantly to save her own life. Sadly, she lost.
Conservative Tribune (h/t Monica J) Early media reports depicted the gruesome encounter as one where the radical Islamist, Alton Alexander Nolen, (also known as Jah’keem Yisrael) attacked and killed Colleen Hufford from behind. The man, who the media only said was a “recent” Muslim convert, actually had multiple social media postings on Facebook that professed his allegiance to the Islamic State.
But the FBI still classified the crime as “workplace violence” and not what it truly was – domestic terrorism.
Hufford suffered multiple defensive wounds as she fought the Islamist at every turn, doing everything she possibly could to protect her life. The autopsy report clearly shows that she did not die with her back turned. She had wounds across her hands, cheeks, arms and neck before she was injured enough that the Islamist was able to carry out the beheading.
“Evidence from the autopsy indicates Hufford put up a fight before her death. The autopsy describes multiple defensive injuries to both hands and her right arm and other injuries to Hufford’s cheek, chest and upper arm.” Hufford was a hero in her own right. Though she ultimately lost the battle for her life, she gave it all she had.
Did Obama ever acknowledge her death? Not a bit. As a matter of fact, he never mentioned her name once in public.
Hufford won’t get the attention she deserves. We have the utmost respect for this American woman for at least attempting to fight this Islamic monster off before he took her life for no reason. The killer remains in jail, where he’ll rot for a long time to come or hopefully face the death penalty.
It is amazing that the people who represent us can’t say it for what it really was. A lone wolf terror attack. If the offender does not regret his actions there will come a day he does. No more opportunities in life. It does not matter what you have in prison, ultimately it is the loss of freedom that will get to you.
