Connor MacCalisterSACO, ME – Police have charged 31-year-old Connor MacCalister with after she walked into a grocery store and slit the throat of a 59-year-old mother of five.

According to police, MacCalister had been planning to kill someone for months because she was “angry with life.”

On Wednesday afternoon, she walked into a Shaw’s supermarket and targeted Wendy Boudreau because the victim had “looked at her funny” in the parking lot and was a small elderly female MacCalister “knew wouldn’t resist,” according to court documents.

Other shoppers say there was a lot of shouting before MacCalister grabbed Boudreau from behind and then slit her throat.

Two EMTS were already in the store shopping, so they immediately began providing medical assistance to Boudreau while store employees and shoppers held down MacCalister until police arrived. MacCalister said she was off her meds and had planned on killing more people had she not been stopped.

Boudreau was rushed to Southern Maine Health Care in Biddeford, where she later died. MacCalister was taken into custody and charged with murder. She’s currently in the York County Jail with a court appearance scheduled for Friday. She only has one prior conviction for criminal mischief three years ago.

Wendy Boudreau

MacCalister, who was living in a group home, recently changed her name from Tenisha Amber Hopkins. Her neighbors don’t know much about her, saying she usually keeps to herself.

Boudreau’s daughter-in-law posted the following on Facebook:

Yesterday’s events have truly changed our lives forever. My kids are so devastated, they loved their grandmother so much, she was a huge presence in their lives. Wendy adored her children and grandchildren, she did so much for all of us that I am not sure how we will go on with out her.

I truly hate this woman who has done this to my children. It was such a senseless act, done for no reason other than to inflict pain. She had no idea the amount of lives she affected when she decided to use a knife against my mother in law. RIP Mrs. B, you will be missed by us all.”

Police said they are working on a motive behind the murder, but say the attack was completely random and have found no evidence that the women even knew each other.

I’m not a psychiatrist or anything, but looking at MacCalister’s picture, I’m going to guess she’s batshit crazy. I wouldn’t doubt she’s in her cell right now, fighting off imaginary bats.
