Sometimes, you know when someone is hit by mental illness. This case is sadder than most, and a young man may spend the rest of his life in prison because of it. Lonnie Scott is a 35-year old man who is in police custody for stabbing his mother and killing her, and someone needs to tell the poor guy that his mother isn’t alive anymore.
Even worse, the Scott had just gotten out of prison for stabbing his girlfriend back in 2006. When his mom kept badgering him about getting a job, that’s when he lost it. It’s a terrible situation, and the rest of the story is below:
Lonnie Scott, 35, of Arverne, allegedly choked and stabbed 60-year-old Sylvia Scott inside their Shorefront Parkway apartment.
“Call my mother, I want my mother,” bawled Scott as he listened to prosecutors read the second-degree murder, tampering with physical evidence and criminal possession of a weapon charges.
Scott then dropped to the floor in Queens Criminal court crying hysterically before a judge held the accused killer without bail.
His mom, who was a senior administrative assistant for the NYPD’s Transit Bureau had worked for the department for 30 years. She was honored as the Employee of the Year in 2012.
Her son was released from state prison in 2010 for attacking his ex-girlfriend Melissa Davis with a knife in 2006.
According to a police report, sometime between Sunday and Monday morning, Scott got mad at his mom for badgering him about getting a job. he allegedly went ballistic, grabbed a kitchen knife, stabbed her repeatedly and cut her throat, the report states. He then wrapped his mother’ s body in plastic bags and blankets, cops said.
Scott was later arrested outside a drugstore where he was trying to buy beer.
At the 100th Precinct, he fumed at cops after he allegedly confessed to the savage slaying. “I already told you I killed her, why do you need a video of me telling you that?”
