In the Spirit of Islam,




Nolen's mother and sister posted a video message on Facebook over the weekend saying they were shocked and saddened by the allegations against him.

"My son was raised up in a loving home. My son was raised up believing in God," his mother, Joyce Nolen, said in the video. "Our hearts bleed right now because of what they're saying Alton has done."

A cousin, 29-year-old James Fulsom, told The Associated Press that as recently as February, Nolen did not mention his conversion in conversations

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — An Oklahoma man who had been suspended from his job was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in the gruesome beheading of a co-worker, who was attacked from behind as the man sought revenge, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

Alton Nolen, 30, could face the death penalty for Thursday's deadly attack on Colleen Hufford, 54, at the Vaughan Foods plant in Moore. He also faces two assault charges.

The FBI is also investigating, given Nolen's interest in beheadings and a recent surge in Middle East violence. Nolen had recently converted to Islam but Cleveland County Prosecutor Greg Mashburn said it appeared the attack was tied more to Nolen's suspension.

Call Oklahoma beheading what it is: Terrorism

(CNN) -- Colleen Hufford, 54, was beheaded by Alton Nolen during a surprise attack at a Vaughan Foods plant in Oklahoma last week, according to police. Thankfully, before the terrorist -- yes, terrorist -- could behead another victim, Traci Johnson, he was shot by the company's CEO, Mark Vaughan, who is also a deputy sheriff.

The terrorist survived. Hufford, a wife, mother, and grandmother, did not. Her husband of 25 years was outside Vaughan Foods that afternoon, waiting to pick her up as he did every day, when he learned she was the victim of a terrorist attack.

Dozens of Americans openly support ISIS — and they're all following a cleric in Michigan


A new investigation suggests that dozens of Americans have showed open support of ISIS, and they've all got something in common — they're following a radical cleric in Michigan.

Vocativ's deep-web reporting found a network of American ISIS supporters, many of whom have expressed their support for ISIS on social media. The government is investigating one of the supporters, an unidentified man who is a student at a religious university in the Midwest and is originally from New York City, the school told Vocativ. The Joint Terrorism Task Force is "meeting to determine the threat level" the student poses to the school, according to the university.

Alton Nolen: A jihadist beheading in Oklahoma?

As more details have emerged about Nolen, a former criminal who had served time for assaulting a police officer, it has become clear that he had been seduced by militant ideology.

His Facebook page shows he changed his name to Jah'Keem Yisrael and his cover photo shows Islamic fighters brandishing weapons.







A picture on his Facebook page shows him standing inside the front entrance flanked by two men and holding up his index finger in a gesture that has become associated with Islamic State militants.

A beheading in Oklahoma: Was it terrorism or workplace violence?

But as residents of Moore grapple with the shock of what happened in their town, the gruesome nature of the crime has also sparked a politically charged question: Was it an act of Islamist terrorism or an extreme case of workplace violence?

Mashburn and other local officials have so far described what happened at Vaughan Foods as a horrifying but random case of an angry worker lashing out. But the grisly attack came after months of highly publicized beheadings by the Islamic State militant group and just days after the FBI warned local law enforcement officials around the country to be on guard against domestic attacks by supporters of the group, also known as ISIS or ISIL.

While the FBI says it has found no links so far between Nolen and the Islamic State or other extremist groups, there is little doubt he sympathized with their cause. Nolen, who had recently converted to Islam while serving time in prison for drug and assault charges, posted long anti-American screeds to his Facebook page, where he was listed under the name Jah'Keem Yisrael. On the page, which has since been removed, he published photos of Osama bin Laden and militant fighters as well as warnings to people who did not adhere to Muslim beliefs.

I read this story earlier this afternoon. It appears the perpetrator was her own 35 year-old son who had mental issues.
