Crazy Man Attacks Woman in Cemetery, Blames ‘Personality Change’

Once you start allowing people to identify as things they are not, and even encourage mental instability, people will quickly fall down that slippery slope.

A Kentucky man allegedly attacked a woman in a cemetery, attempting to strangle her, and then blamed it on a “personality change.”

Fox News reports:

Kentucky man reportedly told police he blacked out and took on “another personality” Saturday when he tried strangling a woman in a cemetery.

Brice Gross, 19, sneaked behind a woman Saturday evening in the Georgetown Cemetery and attacked her, placing his hands around the woman’s neck, police said. The woman fought off Gross and ran away.

Gross later told WKYT he blacked out and took on “another personality” when he was at the cemetery visiting his uncle’s grave.

He said, “I vaguely remember getting her to the ground and then running,” Gross continued, “That’s just about it. I don’t remember anything else.”

Gross told police he planned to strangle the woman until she was unconscious, then place her in the back of his trunk. He would then place a rock on the vehicle’s gas pedal to send the woman and the vehicle into the water, according to the police report.

Gross claimed he has several hundred personalities, but never one that committed a violent act before, according to WKTY. He blamed visiting his uncle’s grave for his personality change.

Gross stated, “Because if that really — I don’t doubt it did happen — but since it happened, my personalities are very dangerous, evidently. More dangerous than I thought they were.”

If he actually does have multiple personalities then he should have been getting help much sooner. Obviously he has some deeply embedded internal issues. However, I almost wonder if he actually does have more than one personality or if he simply blamed it on that in hopes of getting out of trouble.

Either way, he was arrested and charged with both kidnapping and attempted murder.
