    SC - South Carolina woman says ghosts told her to kill mother

    Paula Lynn Anderson

    Berkeley County, South Carolina -
    A South Carolina woman charged with murder told investigators that ghosts told her to kill her mother.

    On Monday Paula Lynn Anderson of North Charleston was charged with the murder of her mother, 68-year-old Frances Anderson, according to WBTV.

    The Berkeley County Coronerís Office determined that Frances Anderson died of asphyxiation from manual strangulation.

    According to an officer with the Hanahan Police Department, Paula Anderson, who hadnít been identified at the time, called police around 6:30 a.m. Monday saying she was having a mental breakdown at a home on Beverly Drive.

    She told the officer she spoke to that there were people under the house telling her to kill her mother, so she did.

    An affidavit notes that Paula Anderson told authorities she had murdered her mother and, ďand that she was hearing ghosts and if she didnít do it the ghosts were going to kill her.Ē

    When officers arrived on the scene they found Frances Andersonís body in the back bedroom of the home.

    Authorities found scratch marks on the victimís neck and noted that the suspect had scratch marks on her face consistent with a struggle.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Paula had a long history of mental illness. Frances was a wonderful, hard working woman who loved her daughter regardless of her issues. I do not believe that Frances was ever afraid that her daughter would hurt her. It is a sad, tragic story.
