Police: Idaho Teen Is Tied Up and Scalped
ABC News ^ | Feb 8, 2005 | AP

Posted on 02/08/2005 3:46:46 PM PST by holymoly

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."

"According to their creed, if you disrespect women you are not allowed to wear a mohawk."

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.

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?

Back in elementary school, I was told that Indians wore their hair in the Mohawk style, in part, because you could survive being scalped with one.

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.

Wow. Isn't scalping a woman pretty disrepectful too?

And if you can't re-attach the scalp, is the person disfigured for life?

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

KBCI-TV Boise

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.

A felony arrest warrant accuses Dahle of aggravated battery, though she has not been formally charged.

"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.

Familyop: I have to think on this. I'm not sure I understand the young woman to be an anti-feminist; but you might be right. I don't have the details.

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.

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.

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.

You're absolutely 'spot-on' as our British Friends say, but they are also having their troubles with it....it's especially troubling when the popular culture and celebrities embrace it so shamelessly, as it makes it so terribly hard for churches and parents to teach the good and time-tested lessons of life to the young.

Elton to wait for wedding
Couple ... Elton and David
Couple ... Elton and David
 
 
SIR Elton John has said he is waiting for British law to change — to “marry” his partner of 11 years.

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.

“There’s 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......

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.
