An animal rights activist was arrested on Wednesday after she stabbed a woman inside a Cleveland, Ohio church for wearing fur. In the wake of the activist’s arrest, it has been revealed that she was previously arrested in 2012 for hiring a hit man to murder someone for wearing fur.
It’s always ironic to see an activist protesting violence against animals by using violence against humans.
Lowell Stabs Woman For Wearing Fur Boots
News 5 Cleveland reported that Meredith Lowell was arrested yesterday after she walked into Fairmount Presbyterian Church in Cleveland Heights and proceeded to stab a woman wearing fur boots multiple times. When police arrived on the scene, they found the victim laying in a pool of blood clutching her left side. By that point, Lowell had been physically restrained by another churchgoer. The police recovered a yellow kitchen knife nearby.
One witness said that she had been sitting with the victim in the main hall of the church with children waiting for choir practice to start when Lowell “suddenly appeared and walked through the wooden doors that leads to the main hall.” The witness said that Lowell then began “pushing or punching” the victim before walking away.
Victim Received Multiple Stab Wounds
The victim ended up with two stab wounds on her left arm and another one in her left abdomen. She told police officers afterwards that she did not even know she had been stabbed until she saw all the blood. Doctors have described the victim’s injuries as non-life threatening. And, they expect her to make a full recovery.
Rev. Jessie MacMillan released the following statement about the incident:
Tonight, shortly after 5:00pm, an unidentified woman entered the church and stabbed a guest who had entered a few minutes prior. The Crescendo Choir children were taken to a secure room accompanied by adults while the perpetrator was being restrained. Church staff immediately called 911 and Cleveland Heights Police and EMS responded promptly. The subject was taken into custody. The victim is in stable condition. No further information is available at this time.
The church will be closed on Thursday and Friday and will reopen on Saturday for the Mock memorial service. Worship services will take place on Sunday at the normal times, 8:30am and 10:00am.
Please keep all involved in your prayers.

Activist Previously Hired Hit Man To Kill Someone For Wearing Fur
More than seven years ago, Lowell was charged with a federal count of solicitation to commit murder.
In 2011, the FBI got a tip that a woman was soliciting a hit on social media. The message read:
“I would like to create an online community on facebook which would allow me to find someone who is willing to kill someone who is wearing fur toward the end of October 2011 or early November 2011 or possibly in January 2012 or February 2012 at the latest.”
And this is what she wrote in a conversation with an undercover agent:
“I will pay you after you kill the person who is wearing fur at the above mentioned time and time of the year. You need to bring a gun that has a silencer on it and that can be easily concealed in your pants pocket or coat. Do not wear anything that even looks even remotely like fur.”
The charges were later dropped in 2013 when Lowell was found incompetent to stand trial. However, it should be noted that the charges were dropped without prejudice, meaning they can be refiled at any time.
Now, she has been charged with attempted murder and felonious assault in a stabbing with a bond of $1 million.
Clearly, this is a dangerously deranged woman who poses a major risk to public safety. We can only hope that charges will not be dropped against Lowell this time. If she doesn’t end up in prison, she should at least be placed in a secure mental health facility.
