    Mom Charged In Stabbing Said Cult Was Stalking Her

    A mother was arrested late Wednesday night, for allegedly stabbing her 2-year-old daughter with a pair of scissors and then trying to strangle her. According to officials, the woman claimed a cult was stalking her.

    The violence broke out inside the laundry room of the Heywood-Wakefield Place apartment building. Gardner police say two residents and a security guard helped save the little girl after hearing the commotion.

    According to police, 38-year-old Susan Johnson stabbed the child in the torso, neck and head. The woman then allegedly grabbed a dryer cord and tried to strangle her daughter.

    Again another one of these stories that you just can't comprehend. It seems the mom has some mental issues, I hope the baby is safe here on out, away from her!

    What a horrible horrible thing for anyone to have to witness and stop. Thank God they were able to stop her though!

    GARDNER, Mass. (AP) -- A woman who believes she was being stalked by a cult has been charged with stabbing her 2-year-old daughter 100 times with scissors, her lawyer and police have said, and can be heard yelling "Die! Die!" on a 911 call.

    Susan Johnson's screams can be heard on the 911 call made by a security guard who helped to subdue her in a laundry room at a Gardner apartment building Wednesday night.

    Johnson, 38, also used an electrical cord from a dryer to try and strangle the toddler, police said, but the security guard and two residents separated mother and child just before police arrived.

    "I heard a woman screaming very loudly that she was going to 'Kill, kill, I have to kill you, Die, die, die,"' said resident Real Belliveau, 65, who lives just down the hall from the laundry room. He was watching a Boston Celtics game on TV when he heard the commotion.

    That poor baby! I cannot even imagine what she must have been feeling and thinking. Thank God that the security guard was there to call 911. I am praying that the little one makes a full recovery and gets placed in a loving home.

    How terribly sad that poor little baby. Once again another one of these stories that you just can't comprehend. What really pizzs me off is that she will probably get off with consoling, maybe a short stay in a metal health clinic and probation. The reason I say this is Mass. Child Abuse Laws Stink. Also were going back about 16yrs. ago there was a woman here in Pittsfield, Ma. I can't recall the first name but the last name was Bates I believe the street it happened on was Crane Ave. She did this same horrific act to her two and tried setting the house on fire. I bring this up for 2 reasons what this mother, I mean monster did is so copy cat of what happened here. With the exception of the fire and cross this mother drew on the wall. She only received probation, consoling, and short stay in a mental hospital. While these 2 children get to live with physical and emotional pain everyday. I will be praying for this poor baby.

    From my read, this sounds like it may turn out to be one of those folie à deux cases where the woman's delusions of the cult chasing her were reified by her treating therapist. Sadly, that area seems to be rather thick with so-called "cult & ritual trauma experts" who seem more intent on proving there is a world-wide government-run cult conspiracy than ethically treating their troubled patients.
