A man in Oregon beheaded his own mother. They say that he is “schizophrenic” but we all know that that is a cover for demonic possession. The possessed then proceeded to go into a grocery store with his mother’s head. As we read in a report from the Washington Post:
A man who decapitated his mother on Mother’s Day and walked into a rural Oregon grocery store holding her severed head was found guilty of murder by reason of insanity Tuesday and sent to a psychiatric hospital.
Joshua Lee Webb qualified for the plea because two psychiatrists diagnosed him with schizophrenia and psychosis, Clackamas County Judge Robert Herndon ruled. He noted that Webb, 37, hears and responds to voices despite a year on anti-psychotic medication.
Webb also killed his dog on May 14, 2017, and stabbed a checkout clerk multiple times with the same knife he used to behead his mother, Tina Webb, prosecutors said.
Webb’s family and relatives of Mike Wagner, the store employee, expressed dismay that Webb was not sentenced to prison.
“Josh Webb is my brother, and I believe this sentence must have prison time behind it, or my mother’s death will forever be without true justice,” Sarah Morris-White said in a statement read in court. “He must pay for his sin.”
Under state law, Webb will be evaluated within 90 days and then at least every two years to see if his mental state has improved enough to be released — a decision that must be finalized by a state psychiatry review board after a hearing. Even if Webb is released, he will be under the control of the state’s Criminal Psychiatric Review Board for life, said John Wentworth, senior deputy district attorney.
Webb, wearing a black- and white-striped jail suit and shackled at the wrists and ankles, did not make a statement in court. In the unusual hearing, he confirmed his guilt and waived his right to a jury trial before he was committed to the state hospital.
“The losses for both families have been profound, and we hope through this process that Mr. Webb will get the help he needs — and he does still need help,” said Herndon, before finalizing his sentence. “This is a case where the medical evidence is without a doubt.”
In court documents filed late Monday, prosecutors described gruesome crime scenes in two fading logging towns in the foothills of Oregon’s Cascade Mountains about 30 miles southeast of Portland.
Morris-White arrived at her parents’ home with her children to celebrate Mother’s Day but found Tina Webb’s headless body on the floor. Investigators later found Webb’s dog dead of stab wounds.
About the same time, authorities rushed to the grocery store over reports that a man was carrying a knife and a severed head inside. Webb drank a soda and then stabbed Wagner, the employee, multiple times before being subdued by other workers.
