Twenty-three-year-old Bashid McLean has confessed to the murder and dismemberment of his own mother, and the reason he gave authorities is absolutely horrific. This is a bizarre case that appears to have met its climax in the same week it began, which is a rarity when it comes to missing persons.
Tanya Byrd was reported missing by her 23-year-old son this week, but someone walking his dog happened upon some of the missing woman's remains. Surveillance footage obtained by officials allegedly showed Bashid McLean disposing of bags and suitcases -- which were later found to contain his missing mother's dismembered remains.
He confessed to killing and hacking his mother to pieces, and the reason he gave police is because the 45-year-old woman wanted him to move out of her house and grow up. That's just chilling, and absolutely an overreaction of the most horrific kind.
Another family member of the young man says that he suffers from schizophrenia and has spent a good portion of his life behind the walls of institutions. So why was he ever allowed to be released?
