U.S.: “Jihad Jane” didn’t exactly hint that she was into radical Islam

  • She was just like anyone else. She had a brother, a sister, a family. There wasn’t anything really different about her.
  • Sheldon Barnum • The ex-husband of Colleen LaRose, a.k.a. “Jihad Jane,” a middle-aged woman who got tied up in radical Islam and was plotting to kill a cartoonist who depicted the prophet Muhammad on top of a dog. LaRose, who was caught in October, wasn’t shy about telling people she was a Muslim, but she left no hints of her radical leanings anywhere – except online, where her exploits as “Jihad Jane” were everywhere. One day, she disappeared without a trace, leaving her boyfriend, Kurt Gorman, high and dry.“I was upset, worried,” Gorman said. “Maybe something happened to her. You don’t know.” source
