Dozens of shocked bystanders looked on in horror as a man beheaded his own mother.. Then kicked her head across the street.
Former university professor Patricia Ward, 66, was wearing only her underwear when she was found decapitated in the street by her son Derek Ward, in Long Island, New York.
Minutes later, 35-year-old Derek committed suicide by jumping in front of a train not far from the scene. He suffered from mental health problems and was carrying a Smith & Wesson and prescription pills when he was found dead.
The incident was that gruesome, one witness explained how he thought it was an elaborate Youtube hoax for Halloween. He also said that when his taxi driver saw what was happening, he instantly vomited.
“The body’s feet were at the curb, the shoulders were at the middle of the street.” he told the NY Daily Times.
He continued: “The head was across the street. I’ve seen some gruesome stuff in my years of living … but nothing like this.”
