Man Who Beheaded Daughter Was “Mentally Ill”

Or, at least, so says the sister

A man accused of decapitating his 4-year-old daughter battled paranoid schizophrenia a decade before the killing, his sister said.

John Patrick Violette, 37, of Clayton, has been charged with murder for the Jan. 12 death of his daughter, Katlin. Denise Violette said her brother was diagnosed with schizophrenia in the mid-1990s at a mental hospital in California.

"I look back and I think, 'We should have never let him out of that place,'" Denise Violette told The News & Observer of Raleigh.

Well, not to belittle those who have mental illness', but, you have to be mentally ill to do the crime in the first place

He experimented with drugs, which Denise Violette thought were the source of her brother's mental breakdown. "I thought it all had to do with the bad choices he made," she said.

Ah, so it might have been caused be illegal drugs. So, self created mental illness. Also, she states he stopped taking his medication.

I have to say, he sure seemed lucid, considering his driving off to the airport, taking a flight, and checking in to a hotel room.
