Kristy DeHuff reportedly stabbed her son, Drayk, in the throat, upper torso and armpit. Authorities say that Kristy, her husband and son, were in the car when the young mother said she needed to run back into the house. Kristy apparently took her son with her, and after a few minutes, her husband became concerned. When he entered the home to check on them, he allegedly found Kristy stabbing her child with a butcher knife. The boy is expected to survive.
Investigators say that Kritsy told them she had a bad dream telling her to stab her son. Police also say that she told them people at a car dealership were going to kill her son, so she had to kill him first.
Her family thinks that Kristy is delusional and nothing but a loving person. Although she has no history of mental illness, her father feels that his daughter had a mental breakdown. Her attorney thinks she had a psychotic episode.
Okay, why is it that when these women have “psychotic episodes” and “nervous breakdowns,” they butcher their children and not the neighbor next door, or the local banker, the postman, or themselves? Why do they choose the innocent defenseless child to hack and murder?
