Cannibalism and Hispanic family values
A Latina decapitated her newborn baby and ate pieces of his body before turning a knife on herself. Otty Sanchez, 33, has been charged with murdering her 3 1/2-week-old son, Scott Wesley Buchholtz-Sanchez. She then used a knife and two swords to dismember the infant and ate parts of his body, including his brain, before stabbing herself in the torso and slicing her own throat, San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said. "It's too heinous for me to describe it any further," he said. She was recovering from her wounds in hospital, and was being held on $1 million bail.
