Man Accused of stabbing mother to death tells the court to “Call my mother”


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?”

      I agree with you one hundred percent! He had the presence of mind to attempt to hide his crime. While, there are mental issues to consider. I fear he has perfected the art of getting away with his crimes by feigning mental illness.

      He probably learned to play crazy while in prison as a defense. He knew exactly what he was doing when he tried to dispose of her body. As someone who has lost her mother, I hope he suffers for what he has done to his own mother. RIP Ms. Scott.

    It's obvious something is wrong with him, and either no one tried to help him or didn't recognize the signs, but I'm sure they use to say all the time "he's crazy", but never considered it to be true. SMH Mental illness is just that an illness.

    He needs help! He killed his mother and attacked his girlfriend. He cannot be a free citizen. However I don't think jail is going to help him. He needs to be locked up in a mental institution.

    I knew his mother Sylvia and his father. We all grew up together. So sad when the child you loved and took care of takes your life. From what I am told he was an angel dust smoker! Well he has to live with this for the rest of his life! She was such a beautiful person! RIP Sylvia!

    I suggest you take a tour of a local prison and see how you feel when you leave. Now invision if you want those people in your home. Fully grown and often scarred and disturbed. Then you badger them to get a job, what if they don’t want a job? You have plenty, “let me hold some cash” Grown folks in your home with no ambition and plenty of anger = powder keg. We maintain a history on people for a reason. When people tell you who they are, believe them. Keep in mind, body language has a way of telling us things that the voice may not.

    First I must give my Condolences to the family. I see a man that dislike women and stabbing them is his choice of getting them to quit them. Yes he has mental illness CRAZY. He plays crazy more after he has done what he has done. He needs to be locked up for life. Cus there is no women around him. He also could be fighting with his sexuality. But he is where he needs to be.
