A mentally ill son with schizophrenia stabbed his mom over 50 times. 26 year old Robert LaBar, 26, confessed to hitting his mother in the back of the head with a metal object, then stabbing her more than 50 times when she didn’t die.
During the attack, Lauren LaBar, 57, phoned her husband Raymond LaBar, 61, for help. Instead, their son grabbed the phone and hung up on his father. Raymond LaBar called back and could hear his wife pleading for help before the line went dead again. When Raymond arrived at the home, Lauren was able to tell him that their son was responsible for the attack. She then lost consciousness. She died at the Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth.
Robert LaBar is being held in jail on bail of $250,000. He has a history of mental illness, anger, and attacks against others. He is supposed to be on medication but refused to take it. Source: Star-Telegram: Mentally ill son admitted to stabbing mom more than 50 times, police say
