Upper Darby, PA (The Weekly Vice) - Kirstie Foley, a 21-year-old Pennsylvania woman was jailed last Wednesday after she allegedly chewed off her mother's thumb and swallowed it while the victim was was soaking in the tub.
According to Upper Darby police, Foley was apprehended at her sister's house Wednesday night after police launched a city-wide search in response to a gruesome attack she inflicted on her own mother.
Police say Foley's 42-year-old mother was taking a bath Saturday night when Foley went on the attack - teeth first.
Investigators say Foley bit off a large portion of her mother's thumb following an argument the pair had been engaged in earlier that evening. Foley also bit her mother on both legs and her other hand during the assault.
"It's domestic cannibalism," said police Superintendent Michael Chitwood. "We never found the tip of the finger. We don't know whether she ate it or swallowed it. Totally out of control. We don't know if she was high on drugs or what."
The victim was rushed to University of Pennsylvania Hospital where she was listed to be in serious condition. Doctors were nearly forced to amputate the victim's hand because Foley had chewed through the web that joins the thumb and index finger.
Foley remained a fugitive of justice for 4 days until she was found hiding out at her sister's apartment.
She was booked into jail and charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and harassment. Her bond has been set at $20,000.
