Heinous crimes have been happening in this crime-ridden Democrat stronghold, and a recent report breaks that an American citizen was beheaded in broad daylight.
Police have identified the woman who was reportedly beheaded in Shakopee, Minnesota Wednesday as 55-year-old America Mafalda Thayer. A suspect is in custody in connection with her death.
The attack occurred on Wednesday around 2:30 p.m. local time in Shakopee, Minnesota. Video circulating online reportedly showed the woman, America Mafalda Thayer, being beheaded by a male attacker before he dumped her body on the road.
“We are aware that a bystander took a video of this incident,” Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate told Bring Me the News, a Minnesota news website. “We have that video. It is deeply disturbing that the first instinct was to post that on social media.”
The affidavit also states officers found what appeared to be a sheath for a large knife along with a knife, shirt, and bloody shoes in a trash can in the alley.
Police said 55-year-old America Mafalda Thayer, of Shakopee, was pronounced dead at the scene.
“I thought I saw a body on the pavement, but I wasn’t overly sure,” said Carol Erath, who lives nearby. “It’s shocking, I just couldn’t believe somebody would be so brutal to somebody else.”
The department said officers quickly apprehended 42-year-old Alexis Saborit, of Shakopee, on suspicion of second-degree murder. He is being held in the Scott County Jail pending charges.
At this time, investigators believe the suspect knew the victim and this wasn’t a random act.
Saborit has a lengthy past, including a significant history involving alcohol, violence, and domestic abuse.
Investigators from the Shakopee Police Department are investigating the death. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension processed the crime scene.

“Shakopee PD has confirmed that Alexis Saborit is in custody related to yesterday’s homicide in which it appeared the victim was beheaded. As we alluded last night, Saborit was ordered to have a mental illness evaluation related to arson charges last fall…
Despite the court’s observation & his defense’s claim that Saborit was mentally ill, he was released on bail. This spring, his conditional release was ordered revoked & a court doc claimed he was a danger to people & community. Judge Richard C. Perkins ordered him released…
Saborit had a hearing scheduled on the arson charge yesterday, in which he was scheduled to appear at just about the time the murder was allegedly committed…
A source tells us that Saborit’s 2017 gross misdemeanor conviction on domestic assault was against the same victim Saborit allegedly murdered yesterday…
Court records indicate that Saborit has two separate prior criminal convictions on domestic abuse-battery in in Jefferson Parrish, Louisiana.”
