Brittany Wilson: Woman, 32, smiles in mugshot after stabbing beau to death with sword
Brittany Wilson believed her boyfriend Harrison Foster had 'several other entities living inside his body for the past several months'
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MISSOURI: A 32-year-old woman from Barberry Street in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, has been branded as an incarnation of the devil after her broad grin on the mugshot went viral. Smiling ear to ear, Brittany Wilson posed for a photo at the police department, after she was arrested for allegedly killing her boyfriend with a sword.
According to police reports, Wilson's live-in partner Harrison Stephen Foster was found with "fresh stab wounds" on his body while a sword was discovered on their lawn. The incident happened around 11 pm on Christmas eve, after which Brittany Wilson herself called 911 to admit the murder. Her mugshot was later released by the Cape Girardeau Police Department which went viral in no time for her carefree, broad grin.
Wilson admitted to the police authorities that she and her 34-year-old boyfriend Harrison Foster were under the influence of methamphetamines on December 24 before the murder. While it is still unclear whether the couple were regular drug users, it is believed that she committed the alleged murder while still high from the crystal meth. During her confession, she claimed to the police that Foster had “several other entities living inside his body for the past several months”. She further added that she decided to stab him with the sword to finally set him free.
Wilson, who was found with her boyfriend's dead body in the basement, was arrested from her home and held at the Cape Girardeau municipal jail. She was later charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action and her bond has been set at $2 million in cash. Her psychological condition is yet to be evaluated and no information is available around that.
Meanwhile, the shocking incident and Wilson's smiling mugshot received a lot of backlash online.
