    How gruesome and dastardly. What could that poor woman have done to someone to suffer such a horrible demise abd on her birthday at that. It has to be someone who is well acquainted with her. I do hope that the perpetrator/perpetrators would be arrested as soon as possible. Justice has got to be vserved. Msy her soul rest in peace.
