Lee Stalham, 38, was at his desk preparing for a meeting when Mohammed Himedan walked into his office brandishing a kitchen knife and stabbed him repeatedly.Disgruntled employee...?
Mr Stalham said: “I just don’t know why he did it. It was not liked we owed him money, we’d not had a disagreement. He woke up one morning, wrapped cling film around a knife and came into the office and tried to kill me.
“The whole thing doesn’t make sense, but I just have to accept that I might never know why he did it.”How very strange. Do other papers have an answer?
Mr Himedan, who did not provide any information to the court on his motive, was detained at the scene shortly after.
The Dutch national, who the court heard did not suffer from any mental disorder or disability, had pleaded not guilty two days before the verdict.Odd, usually some sort of defence would be offered, and thereby reported on. But I can't find any paper that's done so.
Only one report gave any mention of possible motive:
During the attack Mr Himedan shouted "you killed my dad", despite the defendant's father still being alive, jurors were told.Curiouser and curiouser...
