Apparently Walmart seems to be the happening place when it comes to crime.  First, the pepper-spray incident on Black Friday, then a woman gets caught cooking meth in a Tulsa Walmart, now a woman in Greenville, South Carolina gets stabbed in the store and it stays open for shoppers.

According to the New York Daily News:

Avery Blandin, 46, of Simpsonville, is facing murder charges for brutally stabbing his wife, Lila Blandin, 38, as she was worked at a bank located inside the Greenville store on Saturday, cops told local station WYFF.

Phillip Tallent was shopping for Christmas lights with his family when he heard the chilling screams.

"When I looked, I could see a couple of stabbing motions, and I started to run towards the front," Tallent told the station. "When I got up there ... (the man) was making a stomping motion at (the woman) across her chest and neck area.”

According to WYFF 4 News Greenville County deputies said it was the store's decision to stay open after police arrived and roped off  the crime scene.


There is nothing like doing a little shopping while walking past police crime scene tape and a dead body lying on the floor covered in blood.
