A 29-year-old U.S man who believes he is a werewolf has been accused of stabbing his mum, who he believed to be a vampire.
Sheaen Smith from Washington State placed the emergency call himself after committing the crime on Sunday.
When police arrived at the scene they found 57-year-old Aurora Buol-Smith dead on the ground floor of the house while smith was discovered in a bedroom upstairs.
Smith reportedly made a confession to police saying, 'I stabbed her’. Soon after investigators recovered a large kitchen knife believed to have been used in the brutal attack.
An autopsy conducted by the Whatcom County Medical Exmainer's Office found that Aurora Smith, a licensed practical nurse, sustained 20 stabs wounds all over her body, including cuts to her fingers and forearm suggesting that she had tried to defend herself. It was also determined that she had been deceased for some time before Smith contacted the police.
The Bellingham Police Department also tweeted that Smith made statements suggesting a 'sexual motivation' for his mother’s killing.
The suspect also admitted to ‘using a lot of meth recently’ and just three days before the horrific killing Smith had been released from hospital where he had been undergoing treatment for acute psychosis associated with his drug use.
