Girl Beats Mother 18 Times by Hammer, Ducktapes and Strangles Her to Death over Car argument

What kind of person murders their own mother? This kind of question keeps coming up every time a woman is senselessly murdered by her own offspring in this country. The reality is that this happens, on average, at least five times a week. On New Year's Eve 25-year-old Sarah Vercauteren became one of those numbers when she brutally murdered her mother.

Vercauteren reportedly admitted to bashing her mother repeatedly with a hammer -- as many as 18 times -- before binding her hands and feet and then chocking her with her bare hands. All of this came to be because the two had argued over using a vehicle. It seems that the 25-year-old woman couldn't handle being told no by her mother.

This horrific crime has people in Salem Township, Pa. flabbergasted and terrified. But at least they know that it isn't some random person out there lurking about and preying on random women. This death was the result of a young woman with a terribly violent anger.
