This week, Drewby and Yergy discuss the case of Otty Sanchez, a 33 year old mother from San Antonio, Texas, that did the unthinkable.
When police responded to the Sanchez family home just before dawn, they discovered a scene so gruesome that they were left shaken. Sanchez was found screaming that the devil made her kill, mutilate and eat parts of her only child, including his brain. She had butchered her baby boy using a steak knife and two samurai swords while her sister and two nieces, ages 5 and 7, slept in another room.
Otty Sanchez was brought to the hospital to recover from self-inflicted cuts to her torso, and an attempt to slice her own throat. The former home health care worker was charged with capital murder, and was held on $1 million dollar bond.
In the days leading up to the death of baby Scott, Sanchez says she was paranoid, fearing that people were spying on her and plotting to take her baby from her. Her paranoia became worse when the voices began to get worse. For days, Sanchez says, the voices told her that the devil was in her son. She said that she would avoid looking into his eyes for fear of seeing the devil.
Otty Sanchez was found not guilty by reason of insanity on June 30, 2010, less than a year after the death of baby Scott. She was sent to the North Texas State Hospital in Vernon, Texas where she will receive a yearly evaluation of her mental capacity by the court.
