BOISE, Idaho Feb 8, 2005 A 16-year-old girl was allegedly tied up and scalped with a 4-inch knife in what police say may have been an act of revenge by another woman.
The girl, who had a punk-style mohawk haircut before the attack, is recovering at home. Doctors could not reattach her scalp, which was found near a hot spring.
Police searched for Marianne Dahle, 26, who disappeared after the Jan. 18 attack at Kirkham Hot Springs, about 70 miles from Boise.
"When I say this gal was scalped, she was truly scalped," said Chief Deputy Bill Braddock. "The top of her head, her hair, was completely cut off."
Dahle and the victim, whose name was not released, were longtime acquaintances and hung out with a punk clique, he said.
"The motive, as near as we've been told by witnesses, was retaliation for acting in a way that the adult perceived as being offensive to women as a gender," Braddock said. "According to their creed, if you disrespect women you are not allowed to wear a mohawk."
Angry lesbian alert.
Boise has changed a lot since I've lived there...
We need more knife control.
Hang out with the dark side, things happen...Sorry for her though, that's mighty young to learn that type of lesson to that degree...
A true Zen saying and words to live by. I hear that the creed also states that if you disrespect wimmin you are not allowed to wear muttonchops either. Tough creed they got.
When scalping girls with mohawks are outlawed, only really angry outlaw lesbians will scalp girls with mohawks.
Just out of sick curiosity: What happens to your head in such a case, if they can't reattach the scalp? Do you end up with what is essentially the world's worst facelift? Do they just put a metal plate in there and coax the skin to grow over it?
I would imagine that extensive reconstructive surgery would be needed. It really depends if she was scalped down to the bone or a thin layer of muscle was left. If she was scalped down to the bone, she may have severe problems the rest of her life, which may end up being quite short.
Alia, have a look at what feminists are doing to anti-feminists now.
Person disfigured for life? Not if they can find a way for the taxpayers to pay for a "makeover".
Pedophilia too --- a 16 year old girl with a woman 10 years older?
,,, this sort of thing could escalate to a real cult trick.
When Lesbians Attack!
All I can say is WOW.. and OW.
A plastic surgeon told me the full scalp will grow back in less than a year ("rolling in" from the sides), as long as there is no major infection or other complication. Of course, there will be no hair follicles in the new tissue. I have seen a case similar to that myself.
Boise County Sheriff's Office: Teen Scalped After Argument
By Associated Press
BOISE COUNTY -
A 16-year-old Idaho girl was tied up and scalped by an older woman in an attack motivated by revenge, police said.
Authorities are searching for Marianne Dahle, 26, who was visiting Kirkham Hot Springs in central Idaho Jan. 18 with the girl and a friend when Dahle allegedly tied the girl up and cut away the entire crown and back portion of her scalp.
"When I say this gal was scalped, she was truly scalped," said Boise County Chief Deputy Bill Braddock. "The top of her head, her hair, was completely cut off. The motive, as near as we've been told by witnesses, was retaliation for acting in a way that the adult perceived as being offensive to women as a gender."
The girl is recovering at home. Police would not release many details -- including the victim's name -- for fear it would harm the prosecution's case. Braddock said he only agreed to discuss the incident because the public could help authorities find Dahle, who has been missing since the alleged assault.
Braddock said the victim, the suspect and the female teen witness were "long-term" acquaintances. No drugs or alcohol were involved in the attack, he said.
"It was an act of revenge. I view this as a case where an adult female is using predatory control -- both psychological and sexual -- toward juvenile victims. There are definitely sexual overtones to this crime," Braddock said.
Police were alerted to the case after Dahle allegedly dropped the teen off at St. Luke's Regional Medical Center in Boise, perhaps fearing the girl would die, Braddock said. Though authorities were able to recover the scalp, which had been left behind at the hot springs, doctors were not able to reattach it, he said. After being hospitalized for several days, the teen was released to recover at home.
"I've been doing this for 32 years now and this is certainly a very unusual case," Braddock said. "I've never even heard of another scalping. I really do think this is an aberration, of one very controlling female who preys on young juvenile females."
The teens and Dahle had gone to the hot springs about 70 miles northeast of Boise, apparently just planning on a soak at the national forest campground, Braddock said.
The hot springs, made by a cascade of hot water forming small pools at the base of a cliff, are popular with campers and hikers. But during mid-week in the winter, Braddock said, visitors can count on near total seclusion.
"When I got there it was after midnight and very cold out, about 9 degrees. I found a lot of physical evidence consistent with information that we were given, including the scalp itself, which was near one of the hot pools," he said.
The case has been difficult to investigate because it has taken deputies some time to win the trust of witnesses and friends of the victim. The teens and Dahle allegedly hang out with a counter-culture punk clique, Braddock said, and some witnesses are fearful of retaliation.
"Everybody in this case is very fragile and they're worried about how they're going to be judged by their peers," Braddock said. "I have to be very protective of my victim and others who are cooperating."
Authorities say Dahle is believed to be armed with a knife and staying somewhere in the Caldwell area, driving a four-door, white 1995 Mercury Tracer. Dahle was described as 5-foot-8, about 140 pounds and with brown hair. Police say Dahle may have shaved her hair except for her bangs.
Though Idaho's mayhem law bans "depriving a human being of a member of his body," Braddock said he expected Dahle would be charged with aggravated battery, which carries the same maximum sentence of 14 years but requires a lesser burden of proof in court.
Well, sure, that makes perfect sense! /sarc
I think they take the rest of it off.
this is not the same world that i grew up in.
We seem to have found the winner for the understatement of the year!
Aw, Madame, dat's de style, tu les jours! LOL!
That still doesn`t beat the guy who was so high on PCP he cut off his own face with a hunk of glass.
I perceive a bully beating up on a younger person. And for being "different" from herself and her creed. Had this been a man who did this to the young woman? It'd be in all headlines across the MSM. Vagina Monologues, anyone? What a joke. Vagina Monologues is about older women dictating to younger women, other women. It's bullying "rhetoric" masqueraded as something "loving". It isn't.
My father was a policeman and he would tell me that the most violent homicides that he ever worked on were those occurring between homosexuals.
There's a lot of anger and instability luking under that lavender exerior....
The scriptures say that homosexuals are given over to depraved minds. This certainly seems to be playing out.
Excellent point, and also an indication of how timeless scripture is. Even before the sciences pertaining to mental health were born, it was recognized that there was something profoundly flawed with homosexuality. Call it depravity or call it a mental disorder, it's been recognized as an aberration for millenia.
When her skin grows back in a year or so, she can have an inverse Mohawk.
Watching the bizzare antics of homosexuals has cemented the truth of this scripture...especially their parades of complete and total debauchery.
The mantra that they are just normal people who want to live quietly and peacefully with the partner of their choosing falls on deaf ears.
They are all about perverse sex, and no good can come from a life that revolves around and worships sin.
|Elton to wait for wedding|
The pop superstar, 57, said he wants to go through a ceremony to ensure David Furnish receives a proper share of his millions.
In a US interview, Elton said: We should have the same rights as heterosexual people who are married.
Theres a civil union coming in Britain which will let us pledge our lives to each other.
It looks like Elton's 'partner' doesn't need to worry about being scalped......
A scalped dyke?
This is so lame. This whole "right to marry" is a thinly-veiled attack on the sanctified institution of marriage, nothing more, nothing less.
If he wants whoever to have a share of his millions, just give it to him or will it to him. You can give or leave your money to whoever you choose.
The only concession I would grant these anti-God activists is that there be some legal papers they could sign to give whoever they want legal visitation/authority in hospitals, etc. This seems to be one of their big arguments that being "married" would solve. It is not necessary.
I can't help but think of another scripture about millstone being tired around the neck. Better to not have been born, than to lead the little ones astray.
They'll probably take skin from her thigh or buttocks and reattach it to her scalp.
Could you explain further?
