Woman charged with gruesome meth-fueled sex murder after a mom finds her son’s severed head in a bucket in her basement

A Green Bay, Wisconsin, woman was charged with a gruesome murder after a mother discovered her son’s severed head in a bucket in her basement.

Police charged 24-year-old Taylor Schabusiness with intentional homicide, mutilating a corpse, and sexual assault on Tuesday.

The mother of the victim, a 25-year-old man, called the police at about 3:25 a.m. on Feb. 23 after finding his severed head in a bucket in her basement.

When police arrived, they found the severed head and dried blood on a mattress in the basement, according to the criminal complaint.

Upon learning that Schabusiness was the last person to see the man, they found her at her home. Police said she had blood on her clothing and they discovered a crockpot with “additional human body parts including legs” inside.

After obtaining a warrant, police said they found additional body parts of the man at the first home, including a “male organ” in the bucket, and an upper torso in a storage tote.

Police said that Schabusiness told them she and the man had smoked methamphetamine and began having sex with each other, but at some point she went “crazy” and strangled the man with her bare hands.

“Schabusiness responded that the 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. Schabusiness stated there should be a foot or a leg in the minivan,” read the complaint, according to WBAY-TV.

The complaint alleges that Schabusiness told police she intended to bring all the body parts with her but that she got paranoid and lazy, saying it was likely the meth that made her feel that way.

Police say she used a bread knife to mutilate the body. The complaint says she asked detectives if they knew “what it was like to love something so much that you kill it.”

Bail was set for Schabusiness at $2 million because of the violent nature of the charges.
