Joshua Lee Webb is arrested after murdering his mother on Mother’s Day and entering a local grocery mart with her severed head.

Joshua Lee Webb a 36 year old ColtonOregon man has caused disconcert when drenched in blood he entered a local grocery store with his severed mother’s head, before proceeding to assault a store employee.

The incident happened circa noon, Sunday, Mother’s day as the man made his way through the Estacada Thrifty Harvest market. At the time, Webb along with carrying his mother’s severed head was also observed carrying a large kitchen knife.

Upon having made his way inside the grocery store, Webb proceeded to stab a worker, known by locals as Mike told Ernie Roberts, interim police chief in nearby Sandy, Oregon.

A facebook post via Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office told of authorities soon there after discovering the body of Webb’s 59-year-old mother, Tina Marie Webb in her home about 10 miles away.

Having attacked the much beloved ‘white haired’ checkout clerk, known for his warm greetings and sense of humor, co-workers pinned Webb to the ground until police arrived.

Sandy Interim Police Chief Ernie Roberts told KGW that the 36-year-old attacker did not say anything after he was ‘subdued’ – except to say he was thirsty. 

‘He was in like a catatonic state, wasn’t speaking to anybody,’ the cop said. 

‘That’s why he was transported to the hospital.’

The long term employee remains in hospital where he was treated for stab wounds. Nevertheless the man was expected to survive.  

Soon after the attack, someone called 911 to report that a woman’s body was found at a home in Colton, a short drive south of Estacada.

Police did not say if the body was decapitated.
