El Paso, TX (KTSM) — Rachel Poole, the 31-year-old woman who was brutally stabbed the night before Halloween has been released from the hospital, according to a Facebook posting on Thursday afternoon. "Rachel is home with her family! Still needing lots of prayers for her through her recovery. But praises to God the family is together!" Poole spent a total of twenty-two days in the hospital while she recovered from her injuries.
Poole, was allegedly stabbed by 19-year-old Corey Bernard Moss inside of her home on the 4900 block of Wichita on Wednesday, October 30. According to the arrest affidavit, Moss was inside of Poole's home when she arrived home.
Poole's husband, Justin Poole, who was deployed at the time, was talking to her on a video call at the time of the attack. Poole suffered multiple stab wounds to her face and body and also sustained multiple fractures as a result of the violent attack inside of her home.
Poole was nine-months pregnant with her daughter Isabella "Izzy" at the time of the attack and successfully delivered the baby girl two days after the attack, on November 1.
Police allege Moss attacked Poole over a disagreement between the two about money that he owed her to repair her vehicle. Moss later admitted he only wanted to hurt Rachel 'just enough' to leave to New York where his fiancee lives and avoid paying the $3,000 that was due to her the next day for damaging a vehicle he had borrowed.
