A judge in Oklahoma released audio from the police interview of Alton Nolan, the Muslim who beheaded his co-worker in Oklahoma and attacked others.
Basically, it confirms what has been reported early on:
More from local news:
A jury has recommended the death penalty for Alton Nolen, the man convicted in the deadly beheading attack in 2014 at a Moore food-processing plant.
For the first time, authorities have released the interrogation interviews Nolen gave to the FBI and Moore police while in a hospital bed just days after the attack. Some of the audio was played as evidence and helped the jury send Nolen to death row.
Here’s some of the transcript:
Detective Tony Towery: “Yeah, what happened to you?”
Nolen: “Uh, uh, uh. I beheaded somebody today.”
Towery: “Do you regret what you did?”
FBI Agent David Otwell: “Not at all?”
Nolen: “Nah. I don’t feel regret because, you know what, what I done, that’s probably gonna make Vaughan Foods a better place to work at.”
Nolen was convicted for beheading co-worker Colleen Hufford, stabbing Traci Johnson and attacking others. He told investigators that he felt oppressed because he is a Muslim.
Nolen: “You know I feel like, uh you know, uh, I got upset because, you know, what I’m saying, y’all? The whole time I been here, you know what I’m saying, I been feeling oppressed like it didn’t want me to be here.”
He then described his attack to investigators.
Nolen: “I beheaded them.”
Towery: “Uh huh.”
Nolen: “I grabbed them.”
Towery: “Uh huh.”
Nolen: “I started to attack them.”
In the video it sounds like he’s just a novice at Islam. And doesn’t that mean that it’s nearly impossible to detect a person like this who suddenly converts and becomes a murderer? On the other hand I wouldn’t be surprised if mental issues were also compounding the motivation.
Here’s more about his Muslim connections.
And when the story first broke in September of 2014.
