| GIRL, 16, SCALPED, ALLEGEDLY BY PAL WHO CALLED HER UNFIT FOR MOHAWK
|BOISE, Idaho--A 16-year old girl,
was allegedly tied up and scalped with a 4-inch knife
in what police say may have been an act of revenge
by another woman.
The girl, who had a punk-style mohawk haircut before
the attack, is recovering at home. Doctors could not
reattach her scalp, which was found near a hot spring.
Police searched for Marianne Dahle, 26, who disappeared
after the Jan. 18 attack at Kirkham Hot Springss, about
70 miles from Boise.
"When I say this gal was scalped, she was truly scalped,"
said Chief Deputy Bill Braddock. "The top of her head,
her hair, was completely cut off."
Dahle and the victim, whose name was not released, were
long time acquaintances, and hung out with a punk clique,
"The motive as near as we've been told by witnesses,
was retaliation for acting in a way that the adult perceived
as being offensive to women as a gender," Braddock said.
"According to their creed, if you disrespect women you are
not allowed to wear a mohawk."
