An elderly woman was hacked to death by a man of unsound mind in front of the post office in Falmouth, Trelawny just over an hour ago. The identity of the deceased is yet to be released by the police. The attack comes moments after the same man attempted to attack a schoolgirl. The attack was, however, thwarted by residents and the girl escaped uninjured. Reports are that about 7:45, the mentally challenged machete wielder repeatedly chopped the helpless lady with a machete in the full view of early morning commuters awaiting public transportation. The Trelawny police are now on the scene.
