While being interviewed by police and the FBI after killing two female co-workers, Alton Nolen admitted to the crime on both victims, Colleen Hufford and Traci Johnson. They asked him about stabbing Johnson and he responded, “That was right after I beheaded the first woman.”
Nolen said in the interview that the Quran taught him that anyone who oppressed him should be beheaded, and he talked a lot about his own interpretation of the Muslim religion.
When asked if he felt remorse or regret for his actions, Nolen responded “no”. He said he would go to heaven….
The Qur’an says “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (47:4).
