A savage crime was committed today, February 1, in Toulon, France. According to preliminary reports, a former soldier decapitated a certain homeless man and threw his head out of a window.
A cardboard box with a human head was found by passersby on a street in downtown Toulon. According to France Televisions, the suspect in the felony is a former soldier who has already been arrested. A decapitated body was found in his apartment. The media report that a victim is a homeless man. Police are currently searching for a second homeless man who was in the house Sunday night.
According to the TV channel, municipal police visited the apartment the day before, the policemen were called by neighbors because of the night noise. The police checked the documents of the ex-serviceman and two homeless people and left the premises, warning of legal liability if the noise continues.
For France, decapitated heads have been a symbol of radical Islamism for some time. In October 2020, for example, Abdullah Anzorov, a native of Chechnya, attacked a Parisian history teacher, Samuel Paty, with a knife, killing him and beheading him, shouting “Allahu akbar. A few days later, a terrorist shot in Nice near the Notre Dame Basilica, killing two people, one of whom, a woman, he beheaded.
