In a relatively quiet section of Franklin County, North Carolina, 18-year-old Oliver Funez reported to the police that he had committed the crime of murder.
Funez murdered his mother, cut her head from her body and walked outside with the butcher knife and head in his hands just after notifying the police of his actions. According to ABC News, he was still on the scene when the police arrived.
“It looked to be a large butcher knife, the weapon that was used.” Is what Sheriff Kent Winstead reported to ABC. Two young girls were found unharmed in the home where Funez killed his mother. A fourth child was at school during the time of the incident. Investigators have no idea what the motive behind this gruesome murder was.
Oliver Funez has been charged with first-degree murder and can make his first court appearance as early as Tuesday.
It is unknown if the boy will have an attorney, he is currently being held in a local jail.
