A 24-year-old woman has been charged with the murder of a man with body parts found in property and vehicles in Green Bay last week.
A resident of the home summoned police on February 23 after discovering a severed head in a bucket, according to a criminal complaint obtained by local authorities. WBAY. Officers who arrived at the scene went down the stairs to the basement, finding the head still in a black bucket on the floor, covered by a towel, and “what appeared to be dried blood on a nearby mattress .” A further search of the property uncovered an archive in which the upper body was stored.
Taylor Schabusiness, believed to be the last person to see the 25-year-old victim alive, was found at a nearby home. According to the lawsuit, her clothes were covered in dried blood and police searching her truck found a crockery box containing other body parts, “including legs”.
When police asked her what happened, Schabusiness replied, “That’s a good question.”
She was later charged with first-degree murder, dismemberment of a corpse and third-degree sexual assault.
Schabusiness allegedly killed and disposed of the victim’s body after first smoking methamphetamine with him, according to the lawsuit. They began a sexual encounter which later escalated to include the use of a leash, which Schabusiness describes as a dog’s choking collar. There are two, she said – one for her, and one for him.
Eventually, Schabusiness said she began strangling him with her bare hands. She told investigators she could feel his heart continue to beat as she strangled him, “so she kept pulling and strangling him more.” She kept walking as the man’s face turned purple and blood gushed from his mouth, a local outlet said. WISN report, citing complaints.
She then played with the corpse for “two to three hours” after his death, using multiple knives to dismember the body, prosecutors allege in the lawsuit. In an interview with police, a bread knife “works best,” she explained, “because the blade is serrated.” Her plan was to bring all the body parts with her, but, because of “paranoid and lazy” as she put it, she left the head.
“However, I can’t believe I’m out of my head,” she said
Schabusiness told investigators she was just “going crazy,” and was unlucky for at least part of the encounter. She asked them “if they know what it feels like to love something so much that you kill it”, according to Green Bay Press Gazette.
The victim’s name was not immediately released by authorities.
On Tuesday, a Brown County court set Schabusiness bail at $2 million, considering her a flying risk. She was placed on probation for just a few weeks before the murder charge, and lost the surveillance bracelet she allegedly wore.
“I think the facts alleged are extremely disturbing and disturbing and come down to the violent and serious nature of the offence,” Assistant District Attorney Caleb Saunders said at the hearing. . He called it “one of the most serious crimes” committed in the county in a long time.
