I was finished with this article before I realized I had no idea what this guy’s motive was.
Why would you just follow a coworker home from lunch and murder her? Did she, perhaps, catch him embezzling company funds? Was he an incel virgin obsessed with a woman he couldn’t have? He wasn’t. He was recently married and has a one-year-old child. Is he just mentally ill? Who knows
The man accused of killing a coworker on her lunch break in June told his supervisor he’d be returning to work late that day from his break because he needed repairs done to his car, according to court papers filed in the case.
Kenneth C. Saal, 30, of Lindenwold, is charged with first-degree murder and a weapons offense in the death of Carolyn Byington, 26, who was found stabbed to death in her Plainsboro apartment on June 10.
Then I realized that part of the reason it took me so long to wonder about a motive is that violence against women is becoming so common his simply being a man seemed explanation enough.
