Black ex-con "savagely" murders beloved white business owner/woman in broad daylight

SANTA CRUZ - Friends of downtown business owner Shannon Kathleen Collins mourned her loss Tuesday after police identified her as the victim of Monday's "unprovoked, random" stabbing.


Longtime friend Timerie Gordon said those who knew Collins were "very angry and sad and trying to make sense of something that will never be sensible."

Collins, 38, co-owner of Camouflage on Pacific Avenue, was walking back from a hairdresser's appointment when police say she was "savagely" attacked about 11:50 a.m. on the 300 block of Broadway.

Minutes later, after a number of calls to 911, police arrested 43-year-old Charles Anthony Edwards III of San Francisco on suspicion of murder. Authorities declined to say how the encounter started and what led to her vicious slaying.

"She didn't know him and was not involved with him in any way," Santa Cruz Deputy Police
