Mysterious Habibullah Ahmad remains untried for attempted murder of Anne Widholm.
On Sunday, October 8, 2017, Anne Widholm took a morning stroll on the Ganatchio Trail in Windsor, Ontario. The 75-year-old grandmother and Sunday school teacher was picking up litter, as was her custom, when Habibullah Ahmad, 21, attacked the woman and left her unconscious and near death. The one-year anniversary of the attack passed without notice in local and national media, but there had been some news.
In late July, CTV news said AM800 News, CKLW, has learned that a date for Habibullah’s trial would be set sometime in January 2019, though no official court or police document was cited. The CTV piece came headlined, “Windsor man going to trial for alleged Ganatchio Trail attack,” and the story cited “an alleged vicious attack of an elderly woman.” According to Widholm’s doctor, there was nothing “alleged” about it.
