Mentally Ill Teen Found Holding His Mother's Head & A Knife Decapitated Her Because He 'Felt Like It'
Oliver Mauricio Funes-Machado

This is like a plot straight out of a horror movie.

A teen in North Carolina called 911 and told the dispatcher he chopped off his mom's head because he "felt like it" after stabbing her "like eight times."

When cops showed up, 18-year-old Oliver Mauricio Funes-Machado walked out of the house with a butcher knife in one hand and his mom's severed head in the other. 

Damn.

Inside the house, WNCN reports officers found 35-year-old Yesenia Machado's “decapitated body on the floor between the kitchen and the living room and two small children inside.”

Yeah, her four-year-old daughter and two-year-old son were inside. The kids weren't hurt, but it's unclear if they witnessed their mother's brutal murder.

"What happened to spark this? What made this boy do this? I mean, there's obviously issues that we don't know anything about," neighbor Leona Smith told WTVD.

Well, it seems Oliver may have been off his meds. Officers seized medication prescribed to the teen that's used to treat psychosis and schizophrenia.

The "killer son" is in jail charged with murder. He's also on ICE's hit list because turns out, he's here in the U.S. illegally.
