Who would do this to their own mother? Oliver Mauricio Funes Machada did take four different medications for psychosis and schizophrenia so officers are looking into his mental health as a possible reason for his horrific actions.
Do you think deporting him would have made a difference or was he just a ticking time bomb?

An 18-year-old boy was taken into custody on Monday and charged with first-degree murder for the gruesome decapitation of his mother.
Oliver Mauricio Funes Machada was discovered by police walking down the street holding his mother’s severed head in one hand and a bloodied butcher’s knife in the other.
Police had been called to the scene around 12.45 p.m. Monday after Funes called 911 to alert them that he had just murdered his mother at their home. Franklin County Officers who arrived on the scene report that the body’s of his mother, Yesenia Funez Beatriz Machado, 35, was found inside the family’s home, where they have lived less than one year.
ABC 11 reports that federal officials announced on Tuesday that Oliver Machada is living in the country illegally and was issued an immigration detainer during his first court appearance.
“ICE is focused on identifying, arresting and removing public safety threats, such as convicted criminal aliens and gang members, as well as individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws,” a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesperson told ABC11.
