San Antonio, TX – Well folks, this is one of those stories that is going to make your stomach turn. Not much shocks me anymore, but every once in a while, a story will come along that makes me want to head straight for an underground bunker with some rations and wait out the apocalypse. Early Sunday morning, Otty Sanchez’s mother went to check on her daughter and new grandson and walked into something horrible. A scene that probably resembled something straight out of the goriest horror flick. She found Sanchez cradling the decapitated and badly mutilated body of 3 1/2 week old baby Scott Wesley Buchholtz-Sanchez. Pretty bad huh? Hold on, it gets much much worse.
After walking in on the grisly scene, Sanchez’s mother took the dead baby from Sanchez and dialed 911. When officers arrived, they found the body of the infant laying on the bed in a pool of blood. The child had not only been decapitated, he had been skinned and gutted. Oh, and body parts were missing. The body had to be removed in two bags.
Police found Sanchez sitting on the couch screaming “I killed my baby. I want to die.” She claims she was hearing voices and the devil made her do it. She used a kitchen knife and possibly a sword and machete to kill the baby. She then stabbed herself in the chest and abdomen. When asked about the missing body parts, Sanchez said she ate them. Ate. Them. Gimme a sec. I feel faint. Ugh.
No word yet on whether this was a bad case of Postpartum Psychosis or if she was on some sort of really bad drug. There also is no mugshot to be found yet and I am dying to see what she looks like. Not sure if it will help much, but putting a face to the act may help me process it better. One thing I do know for sure, Sanchez’s mother will be needing some major therapy. This definitely qualifies as one of those things you can not unsee.
