MESA, AZ – A woman accused of trying to drown her 3-year-old in a puddle says on the day of the incident, she was just following the orders of Jesus Christ.
According to court documents, a man called police to report he was investigating a child screaming when he saw 30-year-old Victoria Soliz on her knees pushing a toddler’s face into a puddle in is front yard. The man told police he told Soliz to stop, but she just moved to a larger puddle and shoved the child’s face in it several more times. She then started giving the toddler what appeared to be CPR.
When officers arrived on the scene, they found the Soliz’s 3-year-old shivering from the cold and wearing water-soaked clothing. Soliz was taken into custody while her son was taken to the hospital to receive medical treatment.
While in custody, Soliz was also taken to the hospital where she told doctors she’d been using meth to self-treat her schizophrenia, but that it was “Jesus” that told her to “drown” her son.
Soliz would later tell detectives she didn’t know how she ended up in the man’s front yard, but that her son became stuck to the ground and was being affected by some kind of electrical shock and she put water on her son’s face. She performed CPR on him when he began choking. Soliz also admitted to placing her son’s face underwater, but the reporting deputy described her statement as “strange and incomprehensible.”
Victoria Soliz is currently facing felony child abuse charges. He son did not suffer any physical injuries.
I sure wish God would stop doing this to the mentally ill. We got the loyalty message when he instructed Abraham to stab is son to death over 2000 years ago. It would be nice to one day wake up and find God had instructed my mentally ill neighbor to wash my truck and cut my grass.Tags: Arizona, Child Abuse, Crime, Drugs, mental illness, meth, Victoria Zenaida Soliz
