Jacquelyn Smith Stabbed After Giving $10 To Panhandler

Now THIS is an extremely sad story. A kind-hearted Baltimore woman is dead after her husband says she gave money to a woman who was panhandling to “feed her baby.”

Keith Smith tells ABC News that he was driving his wife Jacquelyn and daughter Shavon home after Shavon’s birthday party when his wife spotted a woman begging for money while holding what appeared to be baby.

Jacquelyn asked her husband to pull over so she could help out the woman who was standing near a man on the corner. As Jacquelyn handed over the money, Keith says the man reached into the car and began stabbing his wife in the chest before grabbing her necklace and running.

“As she was handing her the money, the guy came to say ‘Thank you,’ and the woman was saying ‘God bless you. God bless you,'” Smith recalled. “While we’re looking at her saying ‘God bless you’ and my wife was handing her the money, he came over to the car and said ‘Thank you’ and then he started stabbing my wife and snatched her necklace off and ran.”

He said the female panhandler reached into the car, grabbed his wife’s purse and scurried off into the darkness.


Keith then drove his wife to Johns Hopkins Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Baltimore’s Interim Police Commissioner is seeking the public’s help in identifying the two suspects.

The female suspect is described as being in her 20s with medium brown skin, a medium build, about 5 feet tall, and wearing a long brown coat. The suspected male accomplice is black, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a medium build, a goatee and was wearing a black hoodie.

We hope that these two heartless people are captured immediately. Our condolences to the Smith family!
