South Carolina woman blames ghosts after she admits strangling her mother with extension cord

Published

on

A South Carolina woman said ghosts told her to kill her mother — so she did.

Paula Anderson was charged with murder in the strangling death of 68-year-old Frances Anderson, reported WBTV-TV.

The 45-year-old North Charleston woman called police shortly before 7 a.m. Monday that she was having a mental breakdown and had killed her mother.

Anderson told police that she was hearing ghosts that threatened to kill her if she did not kill her mother.

Police found the older woman’s body on the floor in a back bedroom with a brown extension cord wrapped around her neck.

Investigators found scratch marks on the mother’s neck consistent with strangling, and scratch marks on the daughter’s face that indicated the older woman had tried to fight her off.

Police said Anderson confessed to the killing multiple times by making “excited utterances” after officers read her Miranda rights, the TV station reported.

She also told police that she deserved to “be in hell or receive the death penalty.”

Neighbor said the pair fought sometimes, but they were surprised by the homicide.

They didn’t indicate whether the younger Anderson had shown symptoms of mental illness in the past.

Published

President Donald Trump lashed out at Impeachment Day protesters on Twitter on Sunday morning, downplaying their efforts after seeing a report on Fox News.

Taking to Twitter the president wrote, "Yesterday was the Radical Left Democrats big Impeachment day. They worked so hard to make it something really big and special but had one problem - almost nobody showed up. “The Media admits low turnout for anti-Trump rallies ...saying enough.

Trump’s first term: hits and misses

Published

on

"Promises made, promises kept," goes one of President Donald Trump's main 2020 reelection slogans. Is that true?

Here are some of the key policy hits and misses -- comparing his accomplishments to his promises -- from a tumultuous first term.

The economy will be Trump's major selling point.

Trump's frequent claim that the economy is probably "the best" in US history is an exaggeration, though.

Economists see growing dangers, including exploding government debt and growing backlash from Trump's aggressive trade policies, especially with China.
