This is the story of a 30-year-old Egyptian woman named Hanna Muhammad Hassan, who killed her son, cooked her body parts, and ate them. This horrific incident took place on the 26th of April, 2023.
She choked her 5-year-old son, cut his body into pieces, put him in a bucket, then cooked his body and ate it.
Why did she do it?
Hanna was suffering from mental stress after her divorce. She had a fear that her ex-husband would separate her from her child.
Hanna also feared that her family would poison her and her child and thus moved to a lonely and far-off place.
According to the health reports of the woman, she is suffering from mental upset post her divorce. The case was heard for several days by the 5-panel Egyptian court.
While people were demanding and expecting a severe punishment for the cruel mother, the court was satisfied that the accused suffered from mental illness.
Viewing her mental condition, the court has ordered her to be sent to a psychiatric institution for her treatment.
