Father Decapitated And Dismembered Cerebral Palsy Son 7 And Left His Head At the Side Of The Road

A father has admitted to chopping his son’s head off with a meat cleaver and leaving it in the roadside outside his home so that the child’s mother would see it.

A passing motorist saw the decapitated head of seven-year-old Jori Lirette, from Louisiana, and alerted police.

Detectives later found the boy’s body in a rubbish sack that had been dumped nearby.

The boy’s father, 30-year-old Jeremiah Lee Wright, is alleged to have confessed to decapitating his son.

Jori was wheelchair bound and needed a feeding tube having been born with cerebral palsy.

Wright is said to have told police that he did it because ‘he’d gotten to the point where he was tired of taking care’ of the boy’,

Police Chief Scott Silverii said: ‘He told us when he put his head out by the side of the road it was so the mother would see it when she came by.’

He said Wright’s only explanation for doing so was ‘just that he wanted her to feel stupid when she saw the head’.

Grisly murder: Jori Lirette was decapitated with a meat cleaver and his head left on the side of the road

The crime scene was so gruesome that some of the police who responded to the emergency call have had to have counselling.

Investigators said the grisly killing was carried out over a kitchen sink at the Louisiana home the boy shared with his father and his mother Jesslyn.

His hand and feet were also cut off and discovered nearby in plastic garbage bags.

A forensic team removed the sink from the house in Thibodaux ,Louisiana, as part of their murder investigation.

Wright is understood to have confessed to the killing and is co-operating with police.

According to reports Wright, seen here on Sunday, was sick of taking care of his special needs son

Scene: A driver spotted Jori’s head as he was passing and reported it to the police who called it a heinous crime

He is being held on $5 million bond and could face the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder.

Police said the boy’s mother was away from the house taking her car to a repair garage when the killing took place.

She returned home to find police swarming over her home after the remains and head of her son were found.

Jesslyn said the ‘devil’ had visited her home and had taken away her ‘angel’.

The 27-year-old said her son loved his father ‘more than anything … and he still killed him. He killed my baby’.

‘Not in 22 years have I seen something like this. It’s just heinous’

Police have yet to find a motive for the brutal killing, but family members have said Wright had complained about hearing voices in his head.

Jori LiretteThey said they had urged Jesslyn to leave her boyfriend of the last ten years.

They said there had been tension between the couple for years.

Officers were called to the house last month, when Wright and the boy’s mother were arguing over money, police said.

Flowers, balloons and stuffed animals have been placed in a makeshift shrine outside the home

Wright’s criminal history includes arrests for drugs, burglary and contempt.

The murder has sent shockwaves through the small town where the last killing was three years ago.

‘It hits hard. He has classmates and other children who are his friends. You have police officers who have to deal with it,’ Mayor Tommy Eschete said.

‘It’s a sad day for everybody in Thibodaux.’

Floyd Benoit, Lafourche schools spokesman, said grief counsellors are at South Thibodaux Elementary today to help teachers and students cope.

‘It’s the kind of thing you hear about happening somewhere else, not here,’ Mayor Eschete said. ‘What prompts somebody to do that?’

Thibodaux police chief said he had never come across a crime so bad in his career.

‘Not in 22 years have I seen something like this, Mr Silverii said. ‘It’s just heinous.’
