Perhaps the most horrific, repugnant and brutal of all the attacks was perpetrated in Warren, MI, on May 29, 2012.   A 22-year old pregnant woman was kidnapped from a movie theater by her baby's father, who set on fire and then shot her.   In spite the trauma and injuries, she managed to successfully give birth to a baby boy, 3 weeks ahead of her due date.   The 22-year old perpetrator was upset about the pregnancy because he did not want to have a third child with a different third woman. The young lady also had two other small children, ages 3 and 1.

On June 11, 2012, a 40-year old woman was doused with gasoline and set on fire at a Boynton Beach, FL 7-Eleven by the father of her 4-year old son.   He pulled up to where she was waiting for him to drop off their son, got out of his car and began dousing her car with gas from a gas can. The woman ran inside the store and tried to hold the doors closed.  The man, wielding a knife, overpowered her and dragged her outside where he set her on fire. The entire incident was caught by the store's video cameras.   When she was released from the hospital, she received a bill for several hundred dollars for the towing of the cars from the scene of the crime.   Both vehicles were in her name.
