92 Year Old Shoots Son
92 year old Anna Mae Blessing from Fountain Hills, Arizona shot her son, Thomas Blessing and killed him because he told told her he was going to put her in a care home.
Apparently he told her that it was starting to get hard to live with her in the home he shared with his girlfriend. The couple had shared the house with Thomas’ mother for approximately six months. He told her that he wanted to send her to live in a care home, which led his mother to think that his plan was absolutely horrific.
Anna Mae had two hidden guns that she’s owned since the 1970’s. She hid the guns in her dressing gown and confronted her soon before she killed him in his bedroom, shooting multiple rounds in his neck and jaw.
The mother then attempted to also kill her son’s girlfriend, but the girlfriend managed to knock the guns out of her hands before she managed to shoot her and escaped.
When the police arrived at the scene, they found Blessing in her rocking chair claiming that she wanted to kill herself for what she had done. She was charged with first-degree murder, as well as kidnapping and aggravated assault.
