Michael Brea, the actor who chopped his mother’s head off with a samurai sword, did an interview with the New York Daily News from the prison ward of Belleview Hospital today. In the interview Brea said that God came to him in his sleep and told him it was going to be his last day on earth. Then while riding the train into to Brooklyn to see his mother, he decided to kill her.
“I felt like Neo from ‘The Matrix.’ I began hearing voices and feeling powerful…They were asking about the difference between mom and mother. It was a sign.” After arriving at his mother’s house, Michael waited until his mother asked him to pour some water from a pot on the stove before slashing her to pieces and cutting her head off. “I was slashing my mom and I heard the police knocking on the door yelling, ‘Michael, open up, Michael, open up,’ but I knew they wouldn’t open the door and stop me because the spirits were protecting me…I just kept cutting her. No one could stop me. I was doing the work of God.” Brea’s been charged with second degree murder and possession of a weapon; our guess is he’s gearing up for an insanity plea.
