The story of a Harford County woman who was killed while trying to offer money to a panhandler in Baltimore has drawn national attention, including from celebrity media mogul Oprah Winfrey.
Jacquelyn Smith, 54, was fatally stabbed by a man through her rolled-down car window after giving money to a woman panhandling in the rain in East Baltimore early Saturday, her husband, Keith Smith, said.
Jacquelyn Smith had her necklace and pocketbook snatched by the woman and a man, who approached under the guise of thanking her for giving the woman money, Keith Smith said.
This story struck my heart. I’ve done this a 1k times. But will think twice before ever doing again. To J.S. family I hope her death gets people “woke” to change! https://t.co/ZbFqkLsdF9
