A woman was stabbed, beheaded, and her body thrown on a sidewalk in the middle of the day in Shakopee, Minneapolis. The victim’s name was 55-year-old America Mafalda Thayer and she was allegedly murdered and beheaded by Alexis Saborit, 42, who has been charged with second-degree murder. Saborit was on bail at the time of the killing and even though the court and the defense attorney found him to be mentally ill, Judge Richard C. Perkins ordered him released.
Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate said:
“We are aware that a bystander took a video of this incident. We have that video. It is deeply disturbing that the first instinct was to post that on social media.”
“This woman has a son, has a family and people that care about her and the last place anyone should find out about a tragedy involving a loved one is via social media.”
“Thankfully we were able to apprehend this individual quickly.”
According to police, this was not a random act and the victim and her killer knew each other. The police were responding to a call that a woman had been stabbed and when they arrived they found Thayer beheaded and she was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Shakopee Police Department said in a statement:
“On July 28, 2021, at approximately 2:31 p.m., Shakopee Police Department responded to a report of a stabbing incident at the intersection of Fourth Avenue and Spencer Street.”
“Shakopee officers found 55-year-old America Mafalda Thayer of Shakopee on the sidewalk with stab wounds.”
A HORRIFYING video appears to show the moment a woman was beheaded by an attacker who then dumped her body on the street in broad daylight.
The clip – which was circulated online – looks to show as the victim is dragged from a car onto the sidewalk in Shakopee, Minneapolis, on Wednesday afternoon.
They added: “She was pronounced dead at the scene. Officers quickly apprehended 42-year-old Alexis Saborit of Shakopee on suspicion of second-degree murder.
“He is being held in the Scott County Jail pending charges.
