The Lululemon Murder
On Sip & Shine Podcast: wine flies. And okay, so does time and maybe a couple of curse words and awkward interruptions.
The March 2011 murderous assault referred to by the press as the Lululemon murders was particularly intriguing to the world for several reasons: first, because of its unusual cruelty, and second, because of its unlikely perpetrator.
The incident shocked the well-to-do community of Bethesda, Maryland, town with a low crime rate that sits close to Washington, D.C., and ended in a life sentence for its perpetrator, Brittany Norwood.
Norwood and her victim, 30-year-old Jayna Murray, worked together at Lululemon Athletica, a high-end yoga apparel store with a yogi lifestyle vibe. However, Murray and several other employees began to suspect that Norwood had shoplifted yoga pants and fragrance products. Some reports say that Jayna Murray had in fact found merchandise in Norwood's bag and confronted her about it. She even called the manager of the store to report the theft, saying, "We caught the bitch."
That evening, after the two women left the store, Norwood claimed that she had left her wallet inside and convinced Murray to accompany her back into the store. There, she began a brutal attack that lasted around twenty minutes and included up to eight individual weapons, including rope, a hammer, and a metal rod. Medical examiners later concluded that Murray was alive throughout the majority of the attack, and her autopsy revealed one hundred and seven defense wounds, which she received during attempts to fight Norwood away from her. Jayna Murray also attempted to flee through the back door of the store. Her body had well over three hundred wounds, including stab wounds, head trauma, and signs of choking, as well as a severed spinal cord and a skull fracture.
