    OH - Candy Arthurs, 45, fatally stabbed, Columbus, 23 June 2016 *Arrest*

    (photo from article, edited to remove the children)

    A Columbus woman died after she was stabbed while trying to save her grandchildren from a convicted sex offender (...)

    Candy Arthurs, 45, was with her two grandchildren, Jeremy Mullins, 7, and Kourtnee Mullins, 8, when they were approached by Kristopher T. Amos, 29.

    Amos asked the trio if they would help him search for a lost drone. While the family was helping Amos, he led the two children into an alley.

    Arthurs realized what was going on, and confronted Amos. That’s when Amos allegedly stabbed her in the heart with a large knife and also stabbed Jeremy in the shoulder (...)

    Columbus police said Arthurs “pushed the children to safety” and helped the kids run home.

    What a hero and champion this grandmother is. RIP, you did good!

    ETA: I've heard of the ruse, "can you help me find my puppy", but a drone?

    Thank goodness she was brave. I hate to think what would have happened to those kids if she had been more reticent or unaware. I hope her family finds comfort.

    Arthurs' death and Amos' criminal history have cast a national spotlight on the case, and made their Hilltop neighbors question why they didn't know a sex offender lived there.
