Who Killed Sir David, and Why? UPDATE: ‘Somali Heritage,’ Motive Unknown

It’s almost midnight in England now, and many hours have passed since the news broke that Sir David Amess, a Tory member of Parliament, was stabbed to death during a meeting with constituents: Police said a 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder after the attack at a church in Leigh-on-Sea.
