Have heard about the mother who buried her son in a playground sandbox?

Tiffany Toribio, 23, strangled her 3-year-old son and buried him in a sandbox. The weird part of this story is that part of the way throughout killing him, she changed her mind and began performing CPR on him in an effort to save him.

Then, for some unknown reason, she decided to finish what she started.

After the boy had been missing for a week, the body of the child was found that sandbox.

According to the Albuquerque police, the woman said the reason she did it was "so that he wouldn't grow up knowing no one cared about him ... like I did."

I wish she could have gotten help before she did this. Obviously there is something wrong with her psychologically.

I wonder if this woman has some sort of a mental disorder. From what I read she was homeless and didn't want the kid growing up that way...but there are much better ways to solve that problem than murder.
