Sadly a woman drowning her own kin isn’t something out of the ordinary in a news cycle. However, this story stands out from the others, just from the supposed motive. According to the Huffington Post, an Indonesian woman killed her 9-year-old son for having a small penis.
The woman is said to have drowned her own 9-year-old son in the bathtub. According to a police officer, the mother was afraid his “small penis” would affect his prospects later on in life, and decided there was only one solution for the boy.
According police spokesperson Rikwanto, the 38-year-old mother told the police about her deceased son’s small penis, claiming that before he was circumcised he had a small penis. The mother then continued, explaining that his penis shrunk further more after the operation.
Rikwanto continued, telling the AFP about the mother’s horrifying reason for drowning her 9-year-old son, having said:
“She told police investigators that she killed him as he would have a bleak future with his small penis. She drowned her son in a bathtub filled with water. She then dressed him and laid him on a bed. After that, she went to a nearby police office to report her crime.”
Oddly enough, the mother was fully aware of what she was doing and was conscious of everything around her. Despite that, police had ordered a full psychological evaluation to assess her medical condition.
