    UK - Palmira Silva, 82, decapitated, Edmonton, London, 4 Sept 2014 *Insanity*

    'A man accused over the suspected beheading of a grandmother in north London has been remanded in custody.'

    Nicholas Salvador, 25, a cage-fighter from Edmonton known locally as 'Fat Nick', was arrested after a rampage which saw a machete-wielding man leaping over fences to kill a cat, before attacking people in their cars.

    The decapitated body of Italian grandmother Palmira Silva, 82, was later found in a garden in Edmonton. Neighbours described her as a very sweet, loving lady who owns a popular cafe and moved to England from Italy decades ago. Police raced up and down the street warning people to run for their lives and Salvador had to be tasered before police could arrest him.

    He was booked and charged with murder but refused to answer any questions in court. He'll appear at the Old Bailey High Court, next Tuesday.

    This article is mentioning Nicholas is a Muslim convert, but to be honest it doesn't seem to me that religion has any bearing on this crime.

    'Details have begun to emerge about the man arrested for the murder of a great grandmother beheaded in her back garden.'

    'He was named locally as Nicholas Salvadore, a 25-year-old would-be cage fighter who is believed to be a Muslim convert, who had been living a few doors from 82-year-old Palmira Silva.'

    'One told how he heard him shouting “the cats have stolen my lighter” as he hacked an animal to pieces.'

    A photo of Salvadore (Salvador? It's being spelt different ways) has been released, though it's really odd.

    I think that photo may accurately depict the state of the man's mind; dislocated, to say the least.

    Typical of a tabloid -- play on our hate.

    Salvador, of Gilda Avenue, Enfield, north London, was charged on Saturday with murdering the grandmother and with assaulting a police officer, PC Bernie Hamilton.

    He was remanded in custody by district judge Julian Newton and will appear at the Old Bailey on Tuesday

    i agree with you, religion has nothing to do with this crime. he could be mentally ill or a drug user. the standard newspaper is fear mongering

    poor signora silva and her family, what an awful way to die.

    I think being a "would-be" cage fighter is much more likely to be at least partially responsible than possibly being a Muslim convert. Those guys don't use much, if any, protection. MOO

    This country is going to pot with everything that's happened in the last week.

    Will be glad to be rid of it in 19days hopefully.

    We are 2 points clear officially but every poll by joe public it's been a landslide but I can't get complacent. For once I feel like when I cast my vote it will actually mean something.

    Sorry for getting off topic

    I have to admit that I am suspicious that his recent conversion may have played a part in his actions.

    From June 2015:

    http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2...ler-cleared-of

    The family of an 82-year-old woman who was beheaded by a man with paranoid schizophrenia have spoken of their despair after her killer was found to be legally insane and cleared of her murder...

    A jury of six women and six men found the aspiring cagefighter not guilty by reason of insanity and he will be detained indefinitely in a psychiatric hospital.

    The jury was required to hear evidence of the horrific killing despite the prosecution and defence agreeing a verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity was appropriate.
