Severed Head Leads to Arrest of Wisconsin Woman in Horrifying Murder Case
Officers in the Green Bay, Wisconsin area believe they have found the woman responsible for their recent discovery of a severed head and other body parts.
Police say they were called to a home around 3:25am on February 23rd to answer a call from the homeowner who found her son's severed head and penis in a bucket.
Officers located the human head and penis in the basement of the home. Over the bucket was a towel, and a nearby mattress also had blood on it.
After a short investigation, officials learned that the last person to see the victim was 24-year-old Taylor D. Schabusiness.
The details of the murder are disturbing in nature, one of the prosecutors in the case saying it is “one of the most serious offenses we had in this county in some time.”
In searching Schabusiness' van, investigators found a crockpot with “additional human body parts including legs," according to KCRG.
Next police obtained a warrant to search the home and found "multiple other body parts, body fluids, and knives," the outlet reports.
Investigators said Schabusiness told them she and the victim had been doing drugs and having sex.
She and the victim were having a good time with the sex, using chains to tie him to the bed.
Schabusiness said she blacked out at one point (probably because of the drugs) and began choking him, but then began choking him a little too much. She said she enjoyed choking him but didn't mean to kill him.
She said “police were going to have fun trying to find all of the organs as she dismembered the body. Schabusiness stated all of the body parts should be in the basement,” according to the complaint.
“Schabusiness stated she used knives that she obtained from the kitchen of the residence and that a bread knife worked the best because of the serrated blade,” the complaint continues.
She said she “got lazy and only ended up putting the leg/foot in the van and she forgot the head." She blamed the drugs for her laziness and paranoia.
The New York Post reported that Schabusiness appeared calm and collected during her court appearance on Tuesday, where she only acknowledged that she has the right to legal counsel.
She was recently put on probation and was supposed to be wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet. Somehow, she managed to remove it, and that's how she was able to make the deadly visit.
Assistant District Attorney Caleb Saunders said this was “one of the most serious offenses we’ve had in this county in some time.”
“I think the facts alleged are extremely concerning and disturbing and go to the violent nature and grave nature of the offense,” he said, according to the Post.
This story has made headlines both because of its disturbing nature, but also because Schabusiness' attractive nature.
She was featured on Mugshawty's, a social media page that shares "beautiful mugshots."
