This 34-year-old woman has been arrested for allegedly dismembering her OAP husband after she was caught walking through the streets with his decapitated head and other gruesome body parts in several bags.
The 70-year-old victim’s relatives reportedly caught the woman on the streets and an angry mob tried to lynch her.
The incident took place in the community of Santiago Cuauhtenco in the municipality of Amecameca in the central Mexican state of Mexico at around 11.30pm on 27th July.
The woman, identified as Veronica Rivera Montegrande, was seen walking on the streets with a large fabric bag that had three plastic bags inside.
One bag contained her husband’s decapitated head while the others had other body parts, according to local newspaper El Universal.
The suspect and her husband, only identified by his first name Jorge, were embroiled in a heated row when Rivera Montegrande took a machete and a knife, and allegedly hacked him to pieces.
El Universal said she was spotted shouting incoherent sentences on the street afterwards.
It is currently unclear whether it was from shock or because she was under the influence of drugs.
The victim’s daughter stopped the suspect in the street, but she tried to flee and dropped one of the bags which had Jorge’s head inside, according to the local newspaper Milenio.
Witnesses recognised the head as Jorge’s and an angry mob caught the fleeing suspect and reportedly tried to lynch her.
The police were called to the scene and they transferred the suspect to the Valentin Gomez Farias General Hospital in the municipality of Zentlalpan for treatment to the blows she sustained by the angry mob.
The victim’s head and other body parts were removed from the street by the local authorities.
Meanwhile, the detained suspect remains in hospital as the investigation gets underway.
