Another recent grisly murder of a child did not get as much media coverage nationwide as the Krim murders. But this one was equally tragic and even more heinous. In August, a New Jersey mother called 911 to report that her son was dead. The woman had only regained custody of her son a few months earlier, after he had been removed from her custody due to her habitual drug abuse. During the course of the 911 call, the woman asserted that her boyfriend had murdered her son. However, seemingly tiring of telling lies, the woman revealed what really had happened to her son.

The beheading of a child by a mother is unfathomable to rationale minds. Sadly, it is not a unique occurrence. In 2009, a mother in San Antonio, Texas, was accused of beheading her child and eating his brains. Otty Sanchez claimed that the devil told her to kill and eat her 2 week old infant. This video tells the disturbing story of this innocent victim's murder.
The 33-year-old mother is alleged to have have cut off her son's head, then eaten part of his brain and some of his toes. According to one website:

I was once a public defender, and I can tell you that having to defend someone who has committed a heinous crime is one of the worst things that can weigh on your conscience. But it is the way our system is set up and, for the most part, it works.
However, I will never return to that career path.
