Woman Eats Her Child's Brain? Mental Health and Criminal Justice Systems Failed Her

by Dr. Boyce Watkins

This week, a woman in Texas cut off the head of her three week old baby and ate part of his brain. What’s even more shocking about this terrible story is that she won’t get any jail time for it.

Otty Sanchez, a 34-year old, was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the death of her child, Scott Wesley Buchholz-Sanchez. Prosecutors accepted the plea deal after learning that the woman thought that the devil made her kill her child.

The baby was found in a bedroom with three of his toes chewed off, his head severed and his brain ripped out. Police are saying that the child’s mother ate the boy’s toes and a piece of the brain before stabbing herself in the chest and throat. In the 911 call made by her sister, Sanchez can be heard in the background screaming, “I didn't wanna do it! He told me to!"

  1. As mentioned earlier, Nifty will trade in 4600-5500 range throughout this year and its doing same only.
    Now a days we can see many news in the market about various mergers and stake buying by Indian companies which is a good boost to Indian economy.

    Still we strongly suggest everyone that one should trade with strict stoploss as Indian stock market is quite volatile.

    Investors and traders should also remember one simple point in this Nifty swing from 4600-5500 they will get many good investment opportunities however they have to pick the right stock from so many NSE and BSE listed stocks.
