I hope this isn’t the case, but I would not be surprised if it turns out that these murders were motivated by the anti-Asian sentiment that seems to have been on the rise since the start of the pandemic (which a number of public figures memorably blamed on China). It’s a tragedy no matter the motivation, of course—IMO, though, it would just be that much worse if these women were targeted solely because of their race. I am slightly surprised but very pleased to see the murderer was taken in alive so that least there’s the potential that he will provide insight into his homicidal rage.
No idea on motive yet but it won’t be long. IF the case is race motivated, I heard one news cast call the place “day spa” and I wondered, aren’t a lot of these places ran by people from Korea rather than China? I hope race/hate isn’t behind this but as stated above, with the current situation I wouldn’t be surprised.
