Woman Cannibalized Infant Son, Police Say

July 28, 2009

Texas (ChattahBox) – A woman who is accused of killing her 3 ½ week old son was already thought to be a monster by most. But when the details of that murder were released by police, many who were already horrified have been left stunned.

Otty Sanchez, a 33-year-old woman from San Antonio, was found by police sitting on her couch, screaming that she had murdered her baby. The police had been called by an aunt living in the home with her, as well as the aunt’s two young children. The father had moved out a week before.

But what police found was far beyond the horror they had expected.

The body of 3 ½ week old Scott Wesley Buchholtz-Sanchez (or what was left of it)was found in her bedroom. She had stabbed him multiple times, dismembered the body, and reportedly cannibalized parts of the infants brain, and several toes.

According to Sanchez the ‘devil’ made her do it, but there are much more likely explanations. For instance, the fact that she had recently split with the child’s father, with severe mental problems that have already been reported by family members of the woman, and perhaps postpartum depression.

We can only speculate, but perhaps it would be better not to. No explanation could truly explain the horrible things that Sanchez allegedly did to her newborn baby son.

    Was this mother taking an antidepressant and/or one of the newer atypical antipsychotics? The atypical antipsychotics are half antidepressant.

    The Physicians Desk Reference states that SSRIs and all antidepressants can cause mania, psychosis, abnormal thinking, paranoia, hostility, etc. These side-effects can also occur during the withdrawal phase.

    Go to http://www.SSRIstories.com where there are over 3,200 cases, with the full media article available, involving bizarre murders, suicides, school shootings [48 of these] and murder-suicides – all of which involve SSRI antidepressants like Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, etc, . The media article usually tells which SSRI antidepressant the perpetrator was taking or had been using.

    Otty Sanchez was a Jehovah’s Witness — as was her own mother. Why has the media deleted that fact from most reports?
