He seemed so stable, it’s a wonder how he wasn’t working for Media Matters. Curiously, like South Carolina killer Dylann Roof, he aspired to start a civil war.
The suspect wanted in a string of recent attacks on Asian women in Manhattan has been found dead of an apparent suicide inside a basement on the Upper East Side, law enforcement sources said.
The suspect, 25-year-old Tyrell Shaw, apparently hanged himself and was found in an elevator shaft on the 700 block of Madison Avenue, according to the sources. The body was positively identified as Shaw’s.
What a shame.
The writer of the blog said he would begin attacking women after following two women in SoHo and being rejected by other Asian women. He said he was growing frustrated after talking to nearly 1,500 Asian women in less than a year.
“By starting an independent civil war where I will hit over a million Asian Women in the face with a stick will change history,” the blogger wrote
“Heres my plan: Every Asian Woman by herself must be hit in the face. I may even take a photo before hitting them. The reason is because I don’t think Asian Women like me and that specific one or two or three may have never met me. So I think its brilliant to give all Asian Women a legitimate reason to hate me,” the person continuted.
In a post dated June 17, the blogger wrote: “I just couldn’t understand why Asian Women didn’t find me attractive. Suddenly, I assumed the ones that I am attracted to use cocaine so I decided to play a game. Bash Asian Women in the Nose so that they could stop sniffing cocaine and give me a chance. At first I thought I could get away with 1 Million Noses, but at 6th victim I felt a little discouraged. I didn’t even expect to bash The Dry cleaning lady in the mouth. She went overboard with the verbal abuse. That was actually my day off from playing the Nose Game. Yeah, thats what I’ll call it ‘The Nose Game.’ She asked for it.“
Apparently the Democrat Confederate Battle Flag flying in South Carolina drove him over the edge. Oh, wait, not really.
The man wanted for attacking four Asian women in Manhattan may be a suicidal artist and blogger who’s confessed to the crimes — claiming that he’s playing a game called “Bash Asian Women in the Nose,” police sources said Thursday.
“I had to do it,” Tyrelle Shaw, 25, wrote on his blog “Mr. Talented.”
The site is full of pictures of the lanky artist with celebrities like Russell Crowe, Ben Stiller, Tracy Morgan, “Fast and Furious” actor Paul Walker, who was killed in a crash in 2013, and television judge Judy Sheindlin.
“History needed my reaction towards Asian Women,” he wrote.
Investigators want to question Shaw for four attacks that began on June 10, a high-ranking police source said.
In each case, a man tries to talk to an Asian woman, storms off then comes back and hits her in the head with a hard object wrapped in a plastic bag.
None of his victims was seriously injured.
Cops were given Shaw’s name on Tuesday, police sources said.
“We had been given his name by people who knew him and thought he was the one responsible for the attacks,” the source said. “In his blog, he pretty much confesses what he did.”
Shaw remained at large Thursday morning.
In his blog, Shaw claimed he targeted Asian women for violence because they ignored his romantic overtures.
“In less than 350 days, I talked to nearly 1,500 Asian Women and none of them took time out of their day to say hello,” he wrote in a post dated Wednesday. “I became furious. I never agreed with violence, but I knew the only way I could overcome that sense of rejection-would start by assaulting the women that carelessly rejected me.
