Sabine Radmacher was the perpetrator of the 2010 Lörrach hospital shooting. The attack took the lives of three people and injured as many as eighteen. Residents of Lörrach, a city located in Baden-Württemberg, Germany with a population of approximately 49,303, were shocked by the rampage, mainly due to the fact that Radmacher was described by those who knew her as “quiet”, “nice” and “sincere”. However, friends and neighbors of Radmacher noticed a change in her behavior weeks before the massacre. On September 19, 2010, after a possible child custody dispute, Radmacher shot her ex-husband with a legally owned small-calibre pistol before smothering her 5-year-old son. Following this, she set off an explosion at the appartment complex she had been living in for the past months. Armed with a knife and a pistol, she crossed the street to the St. Elisabethen Hospital, severly wounding two pedestrians on her way. When she arrived at the hospital, she murdered a male nurse. She was killed in exchange of fire with the police. Although the actual motive for the rampage was never determined, authorities believe that a custody dispute escalated between Radmacher and her ex-husband. It remains unclear why Radmacher decided to go to the St. Elisabethen Hospital. However, a miscarriage there in 2004 may have sparked her decision to go on a rampage.
When you receive an Oscar nomination they have a ceremony where you get a certificate ⎯ and a jumper, too. After I’d been up on stage to receive mine, Meryl Streep grabbed me and said, “I took a great picture of you. Give me your address and I’ll email it to you.” I said, “Um… OK…” This was Meryl Streep.
