Notice how the media refer to the beheader only as Alton Nolen, his given name prior to his conversion to Islam, after which he was known as Jah’keem Yisrael.
Colleen Hufford, 54, a Christian woman and grandmother, was beheaded and another woman at the food processing plant, 43-year-old Traci Johnson, had her neck cut but wasn’t beheaded thanks to Mark E. Vaughan, an executive at Vaughan Foods and a reserve Sheriff’s Deputy, who shot and wounded Jah’Keem Yisrael while he was attacking his former co-workers.
