Man Beheads Mother With Saw, Kills Self in Southern California Home

LA HABRA, Calif.
A man cut off his mother's head with a circular saw and then died trying to decapitate himself, authorities said.
Police answered a 911 report of a family dispute at a home just after 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, entered a locked bedroom and found the body of 60-year-old Guadalupe Ruiz on a bed, La Habra police spokeswoman Cindy Knapp said.
Arthur Ruiz Jr., 32, was on another bed with the saw nearby. He had died of neck injuries, police said.
It was unclear why Ruiz attacked his mother, police said.
A child and three other adults were in the three-bedroom home when police arrived. Several families rented rooms in the home, Knapp said.
A neighbor, Paula Sanchez, said she heard the saw before going on a walk but thought someone was doing work in the house or yard.
"If it would have been a gunshot or something, I would have called the police," she said.
Authorities said Ruiz pleaded guilty to driving drunk in 1999, was sentenced to 45 days in jail for being under the influence of drugs in 2000 and was given 18 days in jail for refusing to leave a home in 2004.
La Habra is about 20 miles southeast of Los Angeles.

Hmm, my feeling is it should have been a cross cut blade, is that perhaps why he got angry and lost his head?

Whatever saw he used, now he's going for a worm-drive.

Thankfully it wasn't in Australia. If it had happened here all saws over 7 1/4" would be banned and you'd have to obtain a licence to carry and use the ones that weren't. You would also have to have permission from a property owner to use the saw on their property before you could get a licence. ;)

On this side of the pond there would be similar actions (didn't they confiscate all guns there?)... or maybe they'd blame the NSA (NRA?) for promoting their use. Tom

Not all guns. They bought back (at the govt. price) all Auto and semi-auto rifles and shot guns. When the buy back was happening no allowances where made for collector value or quality. I was in the Police force then and I cried over the number of beautiful weapons that were handed in and destroyed. "I will give up my saw when they pry it from my cold dead fingers" :)

Parents and saws don't seem to mix.
