(WFAA-TV News) DALLAS – This past weekend, one Terrell Walmart shopper snapped a photo of a checkout cashier whose face she found familiar. Hours later, her suspicions were confirmed.
She had just encountered one of the most notorious characters in North Texas of the past decade: Dena Schlosser, the former Collin County mother who in 2004, used a knife to sever her 10-month-old daughter’s arms during a religious frenzy. She said God had told her to.
“I cut her arms off,” Schlosser told a police dispatcher in November 2004.
“You cut her arms off?” he asked.
“Mmmhmm,” she repeated.
Schlosser was diagnosed with postpartum psychosis.
