A senseless and brutal crime. From the Daily Mail:
Police in the US have arrested two teenagers in connection with the murder of a Domino’s Pizza worker who was stabbed 50 times and bludgeoned as she delivered an order to them.
The stabbing took place on Thursday evening as the victim, 27-year-old mother-of-one Elizabeth Hutcheson, was delivering pizza to an address in the small city of Cedartown in Georgia.
Cadedra Cook, 18, who lived at the house, and a 15-year-old boy whose name police are not releasing, are in custody in Polk County Jail on murder charges.
Police said a pizza order was placed by telephone at Domino’s shortly before 9 pm on Thursday and Ms Hutcheson was the delivery person sent.
Ms Hutcheson was found bleeding in the doorway of the house at around 9.15pm by police officers conducting a traffic stop nearby who rushed to the scene when they heard her screams.
She was pronounced dead at Polk Medical Center.
Police said both attackers fled on foot after the stabbing, and after a search overnight involving many different police teams, officers apprehended the teenagers at around noon yesterday in a nearby field.
‘We had been one step behind them most of the night,’ Cedartown Police Department Assistant Police Chief Jamie Newsome told reporters. ‘We were finally able to catch up to them.’
Newsome told the Cedartown Standard investigators were looking for a motive for the killing.
Each suspect is currently charged with one murder charge, but he added: ‘There will probably be more charges.’
Such brutality at such a young age.
