Woman stabbed to death in Walmart, store still stays open.

The coroner has identified the woman stabbed to death at a Walmart Saturday afternoon.
Deputies said they were called to the Walmart on White Horse Road in Berea at 1:21 p.m. about a physical altercation at the store.
When deputies arrived, they say they found a woman with injuries.

The woman, now identified as 38-year-old Lilia Blandin, was found with injuries and taken to the hospital where she died, according to the coroner.

The coroner said Blandin was an employee of Woodforest Bank inside the Walmart store, and was working at the time of the incident.
Witnesses told deputies there was a verbal altercation between Blandin and a man.

They said the altercation turned physical and the man attacked Blandin. Deputies told News 4 the man left the scene.

According to deputies, they have a person in custody but no one has been charged.

Several customers were appalled that Walmart stayed open for business through the stabbing and the aftermath.
"I saw there was blood everywhere, on the ground, on the table, on the wall," said Brittany King, a shopper who arrived shortly after the stabbing. "It's disrespectful to the family that it happened to. Especially the people and the employees who saw it happen."


"From what I can see, they never really gave (the employees) that opportunity to recuperate," said Bob Quarles, who said he walked into the store just as the attack happened.

Master Deputy Jennings Autrey said the decision to stay open was up to the management at the store.

"The shoppers are not affecting the crime scene," Autrey said. "I just want to be clear on that, that it has been roped off and deputies are there protecting the integrity of the crime scene."

Walmart spokeswoman Dianna Gee told News 4," We did, as requested, close our grocery checkout area to allow the police to do their work and provide some level of privacy, given the circumstances."

"This was a senseless act of violence, and our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim’s family during this difficult time," Gee said.

Gee said Walmart was assisting investigators with the investigation and that it turned over surveillance video from the store

Why let one, gruesome little death interfere with the holiday profit margin?

They have special blood clean up kits in the back room, for just such a situation. Seriously.

Re: Woman stabbed to death in Walmart, store still stays open.

The sweat shops that make the crap Walmart sells don't stop production when a 7 year old worker drops dead... why would Walmart do anything different over a murder of an adult?

Hold on, I got this. The woman stabbed was a black feminist, right?

That kit sounds like the one Target has, but theirs come with 3D glasses.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves here, she was a woman and we know Wal-Mart doesn't view women equal to adult humans. I'm sure if a man had been murdered, they'd have shut stuff down lickety split.

Re: Woman stabbed to death in Walmart, store still stays open.

Why close the store if they didn't have to? It sounds like Walmart fully cooperated with police and closed the section of the store that was directed to be closed.

1. Why give up potential sales if you don't have to?
2. Why inconvenience shoppers during the busiest and most hectic shopping time of the year if you don't have to?
3. Why send hourly employees home and cost them pay if you don't have to?

If you want to blame somebody, first blame the guy that did the stabbing and secondly, blame the police for not ordering the store to be closed.

BREAKING DVD POLIZEI NEWS...

...anonymous sources say Walmart is going to give the family of the deceased (and the alleged suspect's family) 20% off select merchandise until the end of the year...

Because outrage.

Honestly, Walmart is huge and murder is, well... not what it used to be. This would be like shutting down half of Kansas every time a kid chokes to death on a marble.

Money to be spent, profits to be made, and it's not like she was a Walmart employee. I say good call on this one.

Re: Woman stabbed to death in Walmart, store still stays open.

Walmart has had some interesting news stories lately.

http://www.fox23.com/news/local/stor...p0WwKsN_w.cspx

Woman caught making meth inside S. Tulsa Walmart

Reported by: Abbie Alford
Email: aalford@fox23.com
Updated: 12/09 5:47 pm Published: 12/08 7:29 pm

Tulsa police arrest a woman for mixing chemicals to make meth inside a south Tulsa Walmart on Thursday.

Elizabeth Alisha Greta Halfmoon, 45, also known to go by Alisha Halfmoon, was arrested for endeavoring to manufacture meth at the 81st and Lewis store.

Police say surveillance video shows Halfmoon had been in the store since noon. Six hours later security noticed she was acting suspicious, so they called Tulsa police.

Responding officers say she claimed she was "too broke to buy the chemicals."

“She didn’t have the money to make the purchases of the chemicals that were needed so she was taking what was needed in the bottle,” says Officer David Shelby.

Shoppers inside the store had no idea someone was cooking meth.

“This is a family store,” says Jessica Fuentes, who also had her 1-year-old son inside the store. “People need to start thinking. If she has family she needs to think about her family. If you are broke. It’s just wrong."

”When I saw her she had just finished mixing sulfuric acid with starter fluid in a bottle,” says Officer Shelby.

They immediately got her, and the ingredients, out of the store before any of the shoppers got hurt.

No one was evacuated.

“Something could have happened, something could have blown up in there,” says shopper Jonathan Tary.

“When firefighters were on the scene she made statements to them that is what she was doing, she was attempting to obtain these chemicals and was in the process of trying to manufacture meth. However, she said she was not very good at it,” says Shelby.

A responding officer didn’t know the bottle was active. As he was discarding the bottle the chemicals burned through the bottle and through his gloves.

He was treated for chemical burns on his hands and is okay.

Police say they arrested Halfmoon just last month in a smurf sting. Smurfs are known among police as meth cooks or recruits who purchase pseudoephedrine to make meth. The medication is often found in cold and allergy medicines and is the main ingredient needed to make meth.

Jail records show she was booked on November 6 and released from jail on those charges on December 6.

Records show she received a deferred sentence and bonded out on $7,500.

In this case her bond has been set at $100,000 and her arraignment is set for December 16th.

In October, Glenn Reese was arrested at that same Walmart with a backpack containing what police called an active meth lab. Drainage ditches and tunnels in that area have been a common place for meth making and using, according to Tulsa police.
