Foley and her 42-year-old mother were apparently arguing in the apartment they share late Saturday, when the lovely lass got all kinds of chompy and stuff, biting the older woman multiple times on the legs and hands as she bathed.
Police say part of mom’s thumb was bitten off in the altercation and has yet to be recovered.
“It’s domestic cannibalism,” said police Superintendent Michael Chitwood. “We never found the tip of the finger. We don’t know whether she ate it or swallowed it. Totally out of control. We don’t know if she was high on drugs or what.”
According to Chitwood, Foley damn near bit completely through web of her mother’s hand between the thumb and index finger.
“She almost took off the thumb,” he said. “Nasty.”
Foley apparently fled the apartment shortly after the alleged attack and was found cowering at her sister’s home on Wednesday. She was arraigned on charges of simple and aggravated assault and harassment Thursday. Bond has been set at $20,000.
Mom is listed in serious condition at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital.Tags: Assault, Biting, domestic cannibal, Harassment, Kirstie Foley, Pennsylvania, Upper Darby
