OK, I really debated whether or not the posting of this story had any value beyond just being an amazingly disturbing occurrence. I couldn't come up with any good reason, but thought the story was at least not worth ignoring. So here goes:

'Beheading' horror in street
------------------------------
By Richard Edwards and Chris Millar, Evening Standard
14 March 2005
------------------------------

A man was beheaded in a frenzied and prolonged axe attack in a London street today.

The axeman, smartly-dressed and in his thirties, felled his victim with one blow and then struck repeatedly "as if he was chopping wood".

The assault lasted several minutes near the Hampstead Theatre in Belsize Park. The attacker ignored his victim's screams and the pleas of two women passers-by and workmen. He stopped when police arrived. He then put down the axe near the body. He was described as looking "emotionless and cool" throughout.

(snip)

A scaffolder working nearby saw a man carrying an axe in one hand above his head as he ran towards his victim. The men were seen to exchange a few words.

Seconds later the axeman struck the first of a series of heavy blows which continued when the victim lay slumped on the pavement in a pool of blood.
