Jennifer knew the best way to avoid trouble, or so she thought. Panic-stricken by the maniac who began to shout abuse at her, she ran into a mini-market in a shopping precinct in Tenerife – and sealed her own doom. Minutes later the maniac brought a long-bladed knife down on her neck once, twice, 15 times until her head had been severed from her body. Then, clutching Jennifer’s head by her hair, he held it aloft shouting: “This is my treasure!” before running out into the street.
