This is just…horrifying.
A young actor, Michael Brea, who can be seen in Ugly Betty and Step Up 3D, fatally stabbed his own mother early this morning with a Freemason ceremonial sword!
The bizarre and frightening incident happened early this morning in Brooklyn, NY. Neighbors of Michael's mother heard her screaming in horror, while Michael yelled out to religious figures, like Moses and the "architect of the universe." It took police almost 45 minutes to finally get into the apartment, but once they had, they found the poor woman with multiple stab wounds in her bedroom.
Michael was promptly arrested, but then taken to the hospital for psychiatric evaluation. Police are still investigating the situation.
How awful! He's going to have to live with some unspeakable guilt for the rest of his life. So tragic.
UPDATE: OMG! Now sources are claiming that Michael "sliced his mother's head off" with his samurai sword. As in, he actually DECAPITATED her!
We're told police arrived to the "bloody scene" and were forced to taser Michael in order to subdue him.
This is just awful! We can't even imagine the torture this woman had to go through! Heart-breaking!
