A killer found hiding half-naked in a ditch after apparently strangling a woman in her home with phone charger told police she was being chased by demons.
Suspect Sheree Latoya Williams, 34, was charged with first-degree murder on 26th March after police discovered a body in her home.
The unidentified victim was found by Williams’ landlord, at the property in West Palm Beach, Florida State, USA.
The landlord – not named in local media – had called police after reportedly spotting Williams running topless around the neighbourhood.
Deputies with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office found Williams wearing only green panties hiding in a canal less than half a mile from her home.
As she was being detained, Williams reportedly yelled out that people were trying to kill her and she saw “demons in the sky”.
She allegedly confessed to strangling the victim who she thought was trying to sacrifice her for “financial gain”.
Williams allegedly claimed she had experienced “vivid dreams” about it.
After the killing, Williams reportedly told investigators she tried to run away but surrendered when she realised she would be caught.
Williams’ bizarre conduct allegedly began several days earlier.
She had called the landlord at 3:00 am on 24th March and asked him to come because she was seeing things and having a panic attack.
Two days later, she was allegedly seen rolling around in the dirt topless.
But when the landlord and his wife allegedly approached her, she fled over the fence – and they later found the dead woman in her apartment.
The shocked landlord claimed Williams – who lived with her eight-year-old son – seemed like a nice person.
A man who knew Williams reportedly claimed she suffers from a mental illness but sometimes skipped her medications.
She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail, where she is currently being held without bond.
