(ZIP) -- Hmm, I’m beginning to think this guy was motivated by Islam.
Via Daily Caller:
Alton Nolen, the man accused of beheading his Oklahoma co-worker Friday, has a Muslim tattoo on his chest.
Nolen has a tattoo on his abdomen reading “AS-SALAAMU ATAIKUM,” according to Oklahoma Department of Corrections records. The Arabic message is used as a variant of “Hello” by Muslims.
Nolen also has three other tattoos, including one of Jesus Christ and one of hands praying. Nolen reportedly tried to convert his co-workers at Vaughan Foods to Islam. After he was fired, Nolen beheaded a 54-year old female co-worker and stabbed another co-worker, who is currently hospitalized, before being shot and injured by police.
