THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

The American woman killed in a London knife attack Thursday, who police identified as 64-year-old Darlene Horton, worked for Thomasville City Schools according to the superintendent.

Thomasville City Superintendent Sabrina Boykins-Everett said that Horton worked for the school system for almost 20 years and retired in either 2002 or 2003.

Officials at Florida State University in Tallahassee said that Horton's husband worked at the university and was teaching summer classes in London, according to an Associated Press report.

AP reported that the attack was not terrorism, and the victims were chosen at random.
