Decapitation of Maria Suarez-Cassagne by Christian Gomez

The crime scene was one of the worst Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said he could remember. A 48-year-old woman was found decapitated at her home, her son accused of swinging the ax that killed her.

Christian Jose Gomez, 23, has been charged with first degree murder for the brutal New Year’s Eve crime. Gomez had a history of mental problems, including a diagnosis of schizophrenia, the sheriff said. In 2013, he was held for a mandatory mental evaluation under the law known as the Baker Act. In that case, Gomez started waving a skateboard at a passer-by and making incoherent comments, according to Gualtieri.

After cutting off his mother's head off, he carried it out of the garage and put it in a trash can outside the house. Next, he dragged his mothers body outside but was unable to hoist it into the trash. Gomez then left the house on his bicycle.

At the time, the teenage daughter was out of the house working at a pizza restaurant, but the older brother Mario Gomez was home in his room. He heard some kind of thumping, not realizing it was the swinging of an ax, and came out to see what was wrong. He discovered his mother's body.

Pinellas County deputies were alerted at 7:24 p.m. and eventually found Christian Gomez in a nearby neighborhood, and after a short foot chase, they arrested him. They noted the blood on his socks. He admitted to the killing, Gualtieri said, and acknowledged knowing it was wrong and against the law.

At the police station, Gomez calmly and matter-of-factly told police that he had been planning to kill his mother for a couple of days. Why? asked one of the detectives. The suspect explained that the victim had infuriated him with her constant nagging about putting some boxes away in the attic. He said he just couldn't take it anymore, so he had to kill her.

The local prosecutor charged Christian Gomez with first-degree murder. After police booked the mentally disturbed man into the Pinellas County Jail, the judge immediately denied him bond.

Here is the initial summary from the deputies responding to the scene in Oldsmar, Florida.

  • Complainant: Mario Gomez (Suspect’s Brother, not injured)
  • DOB: 2/11/1987
  • Address: 1924 Sheffield Court, Oldsmar
  • Victim: Maria Suarez-Cassagne (Suspect's Mother, Deceased)
  • DOB:9/24/1966
  • Address: 1924 Sheffield Court, Oldsmar

On December 31, 2014 at approximately 7:22 PM Mario Gomez called 911 telling dispatchers his mother, Maria Suarez-Cassagne, was killed by his brother and he had cut her head off. Deputies arrived on scene and met Mario in front of the residence then made sure no one else was inside. They located Maria’s body outside of the residence near the garbage cans. Mario advised Deputies Christian had left the residence. Deputies immediately set up a perimeter in the area to look for him.

Another caller phoned 911 with information on a suspicious person riding a bicycle in the area. Deputies observed the subject riding a bike at approximately 7:57PM near 1802 Driftwood Circle. They attempted to stop him. He did not stop; a brief foot chase ensued and Christian was taken into custody.

During interviews with the Detectives Christian admitted to the murder. The murder weapon, an axe, has been recovered.

Christian has been charged with 1st Degree Murder and is currently in the Pinellas County Jail. The investigation continues.
Not a lot of information is available on this case due to the fact it is still working it's way through the court system. Yet below you can see a small picture of the crime scene, it appears this was taken after police or firefighters tried to clean clean it up a little.

Well, as a former resident of Tampa Bay I am proud the state continues to be an early contributor to this forum.

Life in the high desert isn't nearly as exciting.

I just can't ever begin to imagine what it's like for parents who are killed by their children in their last moments.

Re: Decapitation of Maria Suarez-Cassagne by Christian Gomez

Reading her autopsy report, she seemed pretty healthy with a lot of years to go, just awful. I wonder if he'd been showing bizarro signs before this?

Re: Decapitation of Maria Suarez-Cassagne by Christian Gomez

That is probably the scariest-looking actual person I've ever seen.

I am not victim-blaming here, but he was 23 and his brother was 29 or so. Why were they still living with their mother!?
