A 60-something year-old British woman went to the supermarket this morning in the town of Arona on the Spanish resort island of Tenerife. That was her last mistake.

According to witnesses, the attacker, who is thought to be a homeless man of Bulgarian origin, entered the store, grabbed a knife and launched a frenzied and unprovoked attack on the woman.

He then decapitated her before leaving the store carrying her head.

The police caught the beheader shortly afterwards. The motive: none, apparently. No one is safe, anywhere. Happy holidays.
