On Sunday, just down the road from my own home, two students were brutally murdered. After being stabbed in what must have been a horrific frenzy (the student whose flat it was was found with 196 stab wounds) the flat was set alight.
These two men had been studying here in this country but met a truly disturbing fate. I just hope that whoever did this is caught, and soon. Anyone capable of that sort of violence is a danger to us all.
The sheer amount of violence used in this incident makes me think that it was not random, but some form of crime of passion (be that love or just plain hatred). Hopefully this might allow the police to quickly follow the clues and capture the monster.
I do not wish to imagine what the two men's parents went through when they had to identify them. Just for that the perpetrator(s) deserve a lifetime in jail.
