In one of the most horrifying cases in recent years,
33 year old mother Otty Sanchez was arrested for decapitating and eating parts of her 3 week year old son.
Otty Sanchez’s sister called 911 and histerically told authorities what was happening.
Otty Sanchez claimed that the Devil possesed her and made her do it.
Sanchez pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and while she was charged with capital murder she would later be determined legally insane and sent to a mental institation where she remains today until the doctors deem her safe to return to society.
There are 1,000s of women who suffer from postpartum pyschosis and this isn’t the first case where a mom has mutilated their children.
in 2001 a Houston mother, Andrea Yates, drown all 5 of her children in a bathtub and in 2004, Dena Schlosser literally cut off arms of her little baby.

These types of horrifying events seem to only be increasing with time and there doesn’t seem to be an answer. You would think that as far as we have come in today’s society that we, as a human species would have a solution to problems like these.
