Speelman’s mother, Monica Mansfield Speelman, told the Detroit Free Press that her niece was a convert to Islam who married an Arab immigrant several years ago but later divorced him. The family was not happy about Mansfield’s conversion to Islam, said Monica Speelman and Mansfield’s grandmother, Carole Mansfield.

Nicole Mansfield was raised as a Baptist and her father was a General Motors production worker, the family said. She quit high school after becoming pregnant but later earned her GED, attended community college and worked in home health care for 10 years, they said.

The typical trajectory, parents divorce, she gets pregnant, has no aim in life, marries an arab who pays attention to her until he gets his green card....

Why exactly would the US FBI be involved in her death or informing her family about it? Clearly if any agency is advertising they need a budget cut, this is it.

Mansfield’s aunt, Monica Speelman, told the Free Press that Mansfield had married an Arab immigrant several years ago, converting to Islam in the process. Three years ago, after the husband was able to secure a green card. the couple divorced. Speelman said the family never knew the husband’s name. The family lost touch with Mansfield shortly after the divorce and didn’t know she was in Syria.

“I’m sick over it,” Speelman said of her niece’s death. “I didn’t think she was (a terrorist), but God only knows.”

Speelman also said Mansfield was survived by an 18-year-old daughter.

Speelman, Speelman, now what kind of name is that? Jeez, did she somehow get on the wrong side of the Israeli border? Stoopid bastids don’t even know what happened in Europe 75 years ago.

Colleen LaRose.

She's a woman born in Michigan-raised in Texas-who plotted to assassinate Lars Vilks.

It's not a direct parallel-she wasn't going up against the Syrian Army and Hezbollah-but she was a jihadist.

It's not that hard to imagine more women like her in places like Syria, Dagestan, Somalia, Yemen, etc., who have American passports or are even citizens.

Which reminds me ... I haven't heard much lately about another Mooselimb convert closer to home. That would be Katherine Russell Tsarnaeva.

In the American establishment, Russell outranks Ms. Speelman, the daughter of a GM production worker. Russell is the granddaughter of the late Richard Warren Russell, a Bonesman.

No big difference, but Speelman is Dutch. German would be Spielman.

I think we’re going to have a real problem with muslim women because we so often overlook them. Its especially true of eastern European muslims from Checnya etc where the women appear to be the primary suicide bombers.

Speelman also said Mansfield was survived by an 18-year-old daughter.

Then she was only 15 when she gave birth........

In fact ‘White Taliban’ is not a new problem for South Russia and Middle East. Dozens of converts from North America are getting killed there.

I doubt that dozens of women from N. America are getting killed there. I am aware of so called “black widows” from the Caucasus performing the “Splodey Ho” dance, and males from here and there.

I mean men mostly. It is probably the first woman. As for men there were Aukai Collins, John W. Lindt, William Plotnikov to name the least.
