This is news seems taken from a horror movie, a mother killing her own son, then chopped him into pieces, placed pieces of his body in plastic bags and dumped on the side of the road, makes me sick to my stomach, sadly this is not fiction but the story of Donna Kay Scrivo, the Michigan mom arrested for killing her son Ramsay Scrivo, dismembering him and then throwing away the remains in several garbage bags.
Sources close to Donna Scrivo said she and her family had been going thru difficult times, her husband Daniel Scrivo passed away in May 2013 and in July, there was a fire at Donna Scrivo’s home on Rosedale.

He was diagnosed with psychosis and threatened to hang himself when his father’s death, but that was not all Ramsay’s was struggling with, he was on probation out of 40th District Court for assault, he continued to refused to take his medications and had paranoia and depression. His mom Donna, a registered nurse was granted guardianship of her son in May; she had recently filed a mentally ill petition for hospitalization for her son in Macomb County Probate Court, which Ramsay had already agreed to.
