UK: 7-year-old girl stabbed to death by Somali national

A seven-year-old British girl was stabbed to death by a Somali woman in a park on Mother’s Day, Sunday, March 22nd, a coroner was told during a court hearing.

Emily Jones, the victim, was riding her scooter in the Queen’s Park, Heaton while on an outing with her father when she was senselessly and viciously attacked by a 30-year-old Somali woman, English regional newspaper Bolton News reports.

Despite emergency services’ best attempts to save Emily’s life, she passed away about an hour later after she was rushed to the hospital.

Following the horrific attack, the Somali murderer – who was not previously known to Emily or to parents – was arrested at the scene of the crime on suspicion of murder. The 30-year-old woman is now being held at a high-security detention center under the Mental Health Act.

Shockingly, the nationality of Somali attacker was never mentioned by the UK’s mainstream press in what appears to have been an attempt to bury the story.
Mark Jones and Sarah Barnes, during a tribute to their daughter, said: “Emily was 7-years-old, our only child and the light of our lives. She was always full of joy, love, and laughter. Emily had such a cheeky smile and was beautiful inside and out. She had a heart as big as her smile.”

“It is truly heartbreaking to wake up to a world without Emily in it and we cannot comprehend why this has happened.

“We are beyond devastated that this random act of violence means that we will never get to see our beautiful little girl grow up into the wonderful young lady she was showing such promise of becoming. Alan Walsh, the acting senior coroner, described Emily’s death as “one of the most tragic” cases he’s seen throughout his entire career during an inquest into the seven-year-old girl’s death at Bolton Coroner’s Court.

“I have been truly touched by the photographs of Emily that have been sent to me. I send my heartfelt condolences to Emily’s family and friends, but particularly to her parents, who were present in the park and her father, who was nearby,” Walsh said.

“In my 20 years as a coroner this is one of the most tragic deaths that I have dealt with and the loss of a beautiful, innocent, lively, intelligent and lovely seven-year-old in these circumstances is an unimaginable tragedy. I appreciate that Emily’s parents are beyond devastated and my sincere thoughts are with them at this enormously sad time,” Walsh added.
