According to police, a man from Missouri brutally beat his neighbor to death in a case that left investigators perplexed and shocked.
According to police, 31-year-old Isaac Heath killed 76-year-old Eileen Schnitker on Wednesday in Berkeley, a St. Louis suburb, by beating her to death with a baseball bat.
After killing Schnitker, a witness reportedly overheard Heath saying, “That felt good,” to the police.
Wesley Bell, the prosecutor for St. Louis County, told the nearby NBC affiliate KSDK that “the fact patterns of some crimes leave you speechless, and this is one of those.” We’re not discussing a shootout. She was brutally beaten while checking on her neighbor’s house.
According to the Post-Dispatch, police claim that Schnitker entered her porch after a statue was thrown through her window. Her son Jason Schneider, who lives a few blocks away, was called by a neighbor.
According to the Post-Dispatch, when Schneider arrived, his mother had already passed away, and the area had been closed off. Police reported that in addition to being beaten in the face and head, Schnitker had also been stabbed in the abdomen.
Family members claimed that Schnitker wasn’t the target for any logical reason. Police haven’t made any motive assumptions in the media.
“The most loving and caring. Always upbeat,” Cheryl Kaufman, her niece, said of her aunt to the Post-Dispatch. She loved her family dearly. As quick as a damn whip
After his parents left their home a month ago, according to the Post-Dispatch, neighbors claimed that Heath was experiencing mental health issues. They claimed that the house frequently let out screams and loud music.
In the first degree, Heath was accused of murder.
