    MI - Anthony Williams, 40, nearly decapitated by coworker, Detroit, 27 Oct 2004

    A 30-year-old man, who said he'd been bullied for months at the plant where he worked, fashioned a piece of metal into a sword and killed a co-worker, police said.

    "We don't know at this time if this was a case of work rage or just two employees not getting along," Major Crimes Section Inspector Bill Rice said Thursday.

    The slaying occurred shortly before 11:50 p.m. Wednesday at Peerless Metal Co., in the 6300 block of West Fort at Livernois. When officers arrived at the plant they found the body of Anthony Williams, 40, lying on the shop floor. He almost had been decapitated in the attack.

    Police arrested the Detroit man, who was sitting in a chair about 20 feet away from the body smoking a cigarette and drinking a beer. His clothes were blood-splattered and he was the only other person in the building, police said.

    Employees told police that the suspect and Williams had been at odds for several months, but they didn't know what started the problem between the two men. They told police that when the suspect arrived at work Wednesday evening, he got into an argument with Williams.

    The suspect told officers he left work and went to a party store, where he bought cigarettes and a beer, and then returned to the plant.

    Police said the suspect, who police said was convicted of assault in 1999, fashioned a 2-foot-long piece of metal into a sword, using a hammer and a machine. "After the suspect had made the weapon, (he) brandished it ... where the other employees could see it," Rice said. "He told all the other employees to go home."

    Or, perhaps, a little bit of both.
    I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for pretending to be someone I'm not.
