Abstract

She is suffering from stabbing woods on both her hands. Mrs Woodmeyer was attacked near her barn where she called for help. The masked men then took out knives nd tried to stab Mrs Woodmeyer in her heart. She covered her chest with both hands which were stabbed. Despite her age, Mrs Woodmeyer tried to resist the attack. Her sister and employees ran to help her and the masked men ran away. Mrs Woodmeyer bought her estate thirty years ago. The causes of her attacks are unknown but they are not believed to be political. The police is investigating further.
