ANDERSON, SC — 20 year old Kaylee Muthart was discovered by Anderson County sheriff’s deputies outside the South Main Chapel & Recovery Center on February 6, holding her eyeballs in her hands.
According to the sheriff’s department, Muthart immediately became “combative,” and tried to blindly fight off emergency personnel when they attempted to help her. “It took two or three of our guys and two EMTs” to subdue her so she could receive medical assistance, Sheriff Chad McBride of the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office said.
She was rushed to Anderson County Hospital, where doctors confirmed Muthart was under the influence of methamphetamine.
It is believed that the meth Muthart smoked, shortly before removing her eyeballs with her hands, had been laced with a psychoactive drug that put her into a delusional state, as she told medical staff and first responders that “voices” had told her she had to sacrifice her eyes to get into Heaven. Hospital staff have sent blood samples to a laboratory for confirmation on what the other substance is, but have not yet received the results from those tests.
Muthart is in stable condition, but has a long recovery period ahead. Her mother has stated that Kaylee had been using meth for six months prior to the incident. No word yet on whether she has been granted eternal salvation for her sacrifice, but we will update as new information becomes available.
