Mother Beheads Son & Eats Brains
Otty Sanchez, 33, has been accused by San Antonio police of beheading her 3-week-old infant son using a knife and two swords.
San Antonio Police Chief William McManus told reporters Monday, May 28, that Otty Sanchez’s attack on her son, Scott Wesley Bucholtz-Sanchez, was “too heinous” to fully discuss.
To add even more of a horror movie zombie connection, Sanchez claims that she killed her son at the devil’s request.
Sanchez has since been charged with capital murder.
After the attack, according to police, she went on to eat part of the child’s brain and bit off three of his toes.

Former porn actor suspected of mailing body parts to Canadian political parties
A senior police official told Associated Press he was “sure” Luka Rocco Magnotta, believed to have fled Montreal, was in France. Another official said the suspect had apparently flown to Paris last weekend.
Magnotta, born Eric Clinton Newman and also sometimes using the name Vladimir Romanov, is said to know France well, having travelled there in 2010. The actor and model is wanted in a murder case that has seen him dubbed “Canadian Psycho”.
The police investigation was launched on Tuesday after officers found a man’s torso in a suitcase behind Magnotta’s apartment building in Montreal and a severed foot was discovered in a package posted to the Conservative party headquarters in Ottawa. A hand was found in a separate package at a postal facility, addressed to the Liberal party of Canada.
It then emerged that on Friday 25 May that a graphic 10-minute film had been posted on amateur horror sites. The footage showed a man stabbing a naked victim with an ice-pick, as well as performing sexual acts and the dismemberment of the corpse while the song True Faith by New Order played.
Montreal police said they had taken down the film but it kept reappearing online. “It’s horrible. I can’t believe people take advantage of watching this,” Commander Ian Lafreniere said.
Other body parts are missing, and police are investigating the possibility they also may have been put in the mail.
The victim is believed to have been a man Magnotta knew and possibly dated. Police have not identified the victim but Canadian newspapers, including La Presse, said he was a 33-year-old student from China who had been reported missing the day before.
Magnotta, who was born in the Toronto area and speaks English, had been renting a flat in a Montreal neighbourhood. He changed his name from Eric Clinton Newman in 2006, and online posts suggest he had a longtime fascination with identity change and escape.

A 21-year-old college student from Kenya accused of killing a housemate told police he ate the victim’s heart and part of his brain after he died.
Alexander Kinyua hid the head and hands of the dead man in his family’s basement laundry room in a suburb of Baltimore, according to the sheriff’s office. Kinyua, a student at Morgan State University, was charged earlier in May in another attack in which the victim was brutally beaten but survived.
Kinyua is charged with first-degree murder and other charges in the death of 37-year-old Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, of Ghana. He was ordered held without bail.
His public defender did not return a call seeking comment, and a voicemail left at Kinyua’s home was not returned.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Monica Worrell said the chief medical examiner had not yet officially identified the body parts, but that authorities believe they are those of Kodie, who was reported missing 25 May. His cellphone and wallet were left in the home and police were initially told he had gone for a run.
On Tuesday, Kinyua’s father, Antony Kinyua, called detectives and reported that another son, Jarrod, found what he thought were human remains in the house where they all lived in Joppatowne.
Jarrod found two metal tins, which held a human head and two human hands. Police say Jarrod confronted his brother, who said the remains were animals’.
According to charging documents, Jarrod and his father went to the basement, where Jarrod “observed that the items he observed were gone and Alex Kinyua was cleaning the container he observed them in”.
Detectives obtained a search warrant and found the head and hands in the house. Police say Alexander Kinyua admitted to killing Kodie by cutting him up with a knife and eating his heart and part of his brain.
