This story was ripped from the headlines. I neither added to nor subtracted from the truth (as reported). I merely adapted this to the commaful format. I hope this cause thought, discussion, and outrage.

“a high unlike any other"

by bernardtwindwil

On Saturday, November 14, 2015 at 7:23 a.m.,

APD received a 9-1-1 call from a female stating that she had been stabbed numerous times. The female and a male were sitting on the curb enjoying the morning

that same morning

in the 4400 block of Speedway when the male left to use the restroom. The female remained on the curb, dozed off and woke up to a female stabbing her.

The emergency room...

She was transported to University Medical Center at Brackenridge Hospital with life-threatening injuries. The suspect is described as:

The BOLO

• White female • Dark brown or black hair • Curly or wavy hair She was last seen wearing all dark or black clothing.    Anyone with information about this case call the police......

The victim...

The victim, a labor and delivery nurse at a local hospital, was stabbed 21 times. She survived after multiple blood transfusions and treatment for a collapsed lung.

Little evidence...

Aside from a vague description of the perpetrator ― a woman with “dark brown or black hair” ― the only clue found at the crime scene was a blood-splattered gold ring.

The perpetrator...

Moen, had a history of drug abuse and “psychological issues,” walked to a nearby Austin park Nov. 14, 2015, where she stabbed the 23-year-old RN

Her friends described her as.....

“She was a very sweet girl, she seemed to be introverted and shy at times, but overall she was very sweet and creative,”

Her diary entry for that day....

“I stabbed an innocent woman to death earlier today technically yesterday since it’s 1 a.m. It was absolutely fantastic. Murder gives me a high unlike any other.

continued.......

It feels like this crisp unreality, flashing and sparkling, adrenaline and shock, fight or flight mode. How do I even go about describing it.

continued.......

The whole thing was unreal. I’m so proud of myself. I stabbed her like 20 times. Maybe more. I wasn’t counting. She screamed and grabbed at me,

continued.......

aying ‘What the fuck?! Help. Leave.’ … For now, I should explain why. Other than the fact that I’m a homicidal psychopath.

continued.......

I have a deep hatred towards people right now. … Yesterday I lost my other gold ring I’ve worn all my life on a chain around my neck

continued.......

as it was ripped off by a girl I was murdering. Fate is weird.”

The sentence....

Moen, who faced a maximum of 20 years behind bars, agreed to plead guilty to the attempted murder charge, in exchange for the 15-year prison sentence, according to district attorney.

The victim's statement...

“I am glad the defendant stabbed her rather than a child, an elderly person or someone who could not defend themselves."

The point....

We must stop treating substance abuse and mental illness with imprisonment. It is cruel and absolutely medieval.
