DAILYKENN.com -- Social media has identified the suspect as a 30-year-old Somali woman with mental issues. If true, one must wonder why Western nations are importing mentally ill Africans.
Reports say seven-year-old Emily Jones was stabbed in the neck as she rode her scooter past a woman sitting on a park bench. She died of her injuries.
The crime occurred March 22, 2020 (Mother's Day in Britain). Emily was enjoying the day with her family in Queen’s Park, Bolton, England. The attack was unprovoked and the victim was unknown to the suspect.
Perhaps we have a mental illness as well.

A YOUNG girl killed in a park on Mother’s Day was stabbed in the neck by a stranger as she rode past on her scooter.
Emily Jones, seven, suffered “catastrophic injuries” when a woman sat on a bench knifed her in Queen’s Park, Bolton.
The youngster was rushed to nearby Salford Royal Hospital, but was tragically pronounced dead at 3.56pm that afternoon.
Acting senior coroner Alan Walsh opened an inquest into Emily's death at Bolton Coroner's Court today and released her body to allow a funeral to take place.
He described the incident as "one of the most tragic" he has dealt with in 20 years in the role.
Police officer Rebecca Gardner told the court: "Emily was on her scooter playing.
"As she rode past a wooden bench, a female sat on the bench suddenly attacked Emily, stabbing her in the neck, causing catastrophic injury.”
The court was told a post mortem found that Emily died as a result of an incised wound of the neck.
A 30-year-old woman, who was not known to Emily's family, was arrested at the park on suspicion of murder and has been detained under the Mental Health Act.
She remains in a high security facility.
Mr Walsh told the court: "I have been truly touched by the photographs of Emily that have been sent to me.
"I send my heartfelt condolences to Emily's family and friends, but particularly to her parents, who were present in the park and her father, who was nearby.
"In my 20 years as a coroner this is one of the most tragic deaths that I have dealt with and the loss of a beautiful, innocent, lively, intelligent and lovely seven-year-old in these circumstances is an unimaginable tragedy.
