I get no pleasure in submitting these weekly reports of unexpected loss of life. These are reminders of the brevity of life and the necessity to—“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.” (Mark 16:15-16)
A woman wielding a 12-inch kitchen knife teerorized a Lakewood family early Friday, stabbing a grandmother to death and wounding her two daughters and a granddaughter, authorities said.
The 22-year-old assailant, climbed through a window of the brick-front house about 3AM, and set upon the four women. Neighbors told authorities that the attacker chased two of the victims out the front door and down the street, continuing to stab them. -L.A. Times, June 17, 2006
