Police: No Obvious Ties to Terrorism in Oklahoma Beheading

A disgruntled man terminated from his job earlier in the day unleashed fury at an Oklahoma food processing plant by beheading one woman and stabbing another, authorities said.

Alton Nolen was reportedly fired from Vaughan Foods in Moore, Okla., Friday morning and drove directly from the human resources office to another building in the facility where he attacked two women in the front office, police said.

Nolen “became angry” after he was fired, the Moore Police Department said in a statement.

There are no obvious ties to terrorism but police confirmed that his co-workers have told them that Nolan had allegedly been attempting to convert colleagues to Islam recently.

“After conducting interviews with Nolen’s co-workers, information was obtained that he recently started trying to convert several employees to the Muslim religion,” police said in a statement.

Nolen, 30-years-old, attacked his first alleged victim, Colleen Hufford, 54, with a knife that is regularly used by employees at the plant, police said.

Nolen severed Hufford’s head and then stabbed Traci Johnson, 43, multiple times, police said.

Nolen was then shot by the company’s chief operating officer, Mark Vaughan, who is also a reserve sheriff’s deputy, the Moore Police Department said.

Both Nolen and Johnson were transported to local hospitals, police said.

The FBI is now involved in the case and was called in by the local police “due to the manner of death and the initial statements of co-workers,” according to the Moore Police Department.

ABC News consultant and former senior FBI agent Brad Garrett, who has extensive experience in criminal profiling, said that on the surface the incident appears to be “workplace violence,” reports ABC News.

“It’s within the realm of reasonableness that this is ISIS-related, but you have to go back to the motive, and the motive was he was mad,” Garrett said.

Vaughan Foods spokesperson Danielle Katcher said in a statement that “we are shocked and deeply saddened by the events of today.”

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the team member we lost and all those affected,” Katcher added. “Our focus is on the safety and well-being of our employees. We will provide counseling and support for our team members and support each other through this difficult time.”

“We are working with authorities on this active investigation,” Katcher said.
