Around 4:30 Sunday morning 33-year-old Otty Augusto Sanchez (MySpace 1 and MySpace 2) woke her mother, who lives in a mother-in-law suite behind the house where Sanchez and her sister live, and what her mother saw was a particularly gruesome site. When she came into the room she found Sanchez sitting with her three and a half week old little boy in a pool of blood. The baby had been decapitated. The grandmother took the baby from Sanchez and laid him on a bed in order to call the police.
When they arrived police say that Sanchez was sitting on a couch screaming “I killed my baby. I want to die”. Police found the baby’s mutilated body lying in blood on the bed next to a knife which law enforcement believe to be the murder weapon as well as a sword and machete that they don’t think were used. The child had been decapitated, skinned and was missing body parts which Otty claimed to have eaten. Apparently she ate part of his brain and bit three of his toes off. Police had to carry the baby’s remains out of the house in two bags.
According to the reports I have seen Otty claims to have heard voices and told police that the devil made her kill her baby. Sanchez had to be taken to University Hospital in San Antonio after she stabbed herself in the stomach and sliced her own throat with the same weapon she used to mutilate her son, Scott Wesley Buchholtz-Sanchez. Also according to police Sanchez’s wounds aren’t life-threatening and she faces charges of capital murder. She is being held on $1 million bond.
I can’t really place my finger on it but reading her MySpace blogs she seems just a bit off.
