Illegal Immigrant Escapes Murder Conviction After Beheading Girlfriend

Alexi Saborit-Viltres, an illegal immigrant from Cuba, accused of the brutal murder of his girlfriend, has been found not guilty due to mental illness. 

The disturbing incident occurred in broad daylight in Shakopee, Minnesota, when several witnesses saw Saborit-Viltres beheading his 55-year-old girlfriend, America Mafalda Thayer, and abandoning her lifeless body on the street.

The case had initially led to a conviction of first-degree premeditated murder for Saborit-Viltres in May. However, a recent ruling by Judge Caroline Lennon has overturned this verdict, stating that psychologists confirmed the immigrant’s “mental illness prevented him from understanding his actions were morally wrong,” as reported by Fox 9.

During the trial, it was revealed that Saborit-Viltres and Thayer were in a long-term relationship and were on their way to court when a heated argument erupted. Thayer expressed her desire to end the relationship, which allegedly triggered a violent response from Saborit-Viltres, leading to her tragic death by machete.

Saborit-Viltres’ defense team argued that his history of mental illness should be taken into account. The court learned about his hospitalizations in 2013 due to “bizarre delusions” and a traumatic brain injury resulting from a car crash in 2017, which led to hallucinations.

The immigrant was also hospitalized in May 2020, believing there was a camera implanted in his head after the crash.

According to Fox 9, Saborit-Viltres had been diagnosed with various mental illnesses, including psychosis and delusions. Remarkably, he was supposed to be deported ten years ago, but ICE agents encountered obstacles in obtaining travel documents for him.

Thayer, the victim, had an intriguing past. She had legally immigrated to the United States and became a naturalized American citizen, choosing to change her name to “America” after landing a job at My Pillow, founded by Mike Lindell.

She was reportedly supportive of Saborit-Viltres, bailing him out of jail and hiring a private attorney with her money to help him in an open case of arson against him right before her death.

This verdict has stirred controversy and raised questions about the balance between justice and mental health considerations as Saborit-Vitres originally faced up to 40 years in prison. It also comes as Republican voices have expressed concerns over the challenges posed by illegal immigrants in the United States.
