MN: 55-Yr-Old America Mafalda Thayer Beheaded By 42 Yr-Old Male Released From Jail On Domestic Violence Charge Even Though Prosecutor Warned He Would “Endanger Safety” Of Others

American Military News reports – The beheaded body of a Minnesota woman was found on a sidewalk in Shakopee, a suburb of Minneapolis, on Wednesday.
On Thursday, the Shakopee Police Department identified the victim as 55-year-old American Mafalda Thayer of Shakopee. The police department said they responded to a report of an attack at the intersection of Fourth Avenue and Spencer Street at around 2:31 p.m. on Wednesday.
Shakopee Police announced they have arrested a suspect, 42-year-old Alexis Saborit, also of Shakopee, on suspicion of second-degree murder.
The Gateway Pundit reports – Investigators believe the suspect knew the victim, and this was not a random act of violence.
A coworker said Thayer worked at the Dollar Tree in Shakopee as well as at MyPillow.
Saborit is being held in the Scott County Jail, pending murder charges.
Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate told Bring Me The News that a bystander captured the brutal attack on video and shared it on social media.
“We are aware that a bystander took a video of this incident. We have that video. It is deeply disturbing that the first instinct was to post that on social media,” Tate said. “This woman has a son, has a family and people that care about her, and the last place anyone should find out about a tragedy involving a loved one is via social media. Thankfully we were able to apprehend this individual quickly.”
Shakopee Police said, “At this time, investigators believe the suspect knew the victim, and this wasn’t a random act.”
In May, we reported about another habitual criminal who committed multiple heinous crimes immediately after he was released from jail after posting a measly $750 bail.
The 40-year-old “habitual criminal” Isaiah Gardenhire was arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a teenage girl in Mason County, MI. On May 26, 2021.
