Sex & the IMF Top economist charged over ‘attack’ onmaid :: NEWS P3
By Martin Evans, Fiona Govan and Andy Bloxham A BRITISH grandmother was stabbed to death and beheaded in a busy supermarket on the holiday island of Tenerife last Friday.
The attacker calmly walked out of the store, carrying the head of his victim – Jennifer Mills-Westley – as a trophy.
Deyan Valentinov Deyanov, a 28-year-old Bulgarian, had earlier asked a store owner for a large knife and was caught on a security camera spreading his arms to demonstrate the size he required. When asked what he needed it for he said, “I’m going to kill someone”, and drew a finger across his throat.
The shopkeeper, who said he recognised the man as a vagrant who slept in a derelict building nearby, refused his request and threw him out of the shop.
Within half an hour, Deyanov had entered another supermarket where he encountered Mrs MillsWestley, a retired 60-year-old from Norwich, grabbed a knife from the shelf and cut off her head in a random attack.
He had confronted her earlier in the day, forcing her to seek refuge in a social security office but he followed her into the shop.
Locals said Deyanov had become increasingly aggressive in recent weeks after splitting up with his girlfriend.
As recently as February, when he was discharged from a psychiatric hospital, he had told police that “in God’s name” he was “planning something big”.
One British expat, who gave his name as Mike, said Deyanov had been shouting abuse at passers-by until 4am and had flicked lighted cigarettes at female holidaymakers. “Everyone had started to avoid him,” he said.
Others said he was a habitual user of marijuana and was often seen muttering to himself. In one incident he attacked a security guard who was patrolling the beach area, knocking out three teeth.
A shopkeeper, who gave his name only as Carlos, described how on the morning of the attack the Bulgarian borrowed a pen to scrawl a note, and wrote: “I am God”.
