A 18-year-old student of Indiana University was stabbed to death by a woman on January 11 because the victim was Asian.
According to New York Post, Billie Davis (56) stabbed the student in her head, repeatedly, because of her race; the incident happened in Bloomington. The hospital workers spotted seven stab wounds on the victim's head.
The report quoted Davis saying that there would be "one less person to blow up" America while referring to the deceased student. The police told media that the attack on the student was completely unprovoked.
