‘Domestic cannibalism’ in Upper Darby?

Pennsylvania crime has been the subject of this blog since it’s inception in 2012 as a publishing source for crime in Pennsylvania. However this story Daily News Staff Writer benderw@phillynews.com is most unfortunate and unusual.

Is there something in the water in Pennsylvania?

UPPER DARBY POLICE were searching Wednesday for a 21-year-old woman who allegedly attacked her mother while she was bathing by biting her on the hand and both legs.

Part of the mother’s thumb is missing, and she was in serious condition at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

“It’s domestic cannibalism,” said police Superintendent Michael Chitwood. “We never found the tip of the finger. We don’t know whether she ate it or swallowed it. Totally out of control. We don’t know if she was high on drugs or what.”

Kirstie L. Foley, 21, who lives in an apartment with her mother on Marshall Road near Long Lane, is wanted for aggravated assault, simple assault and harassment.

Chitwood said it was unclear why Foley was arguing with her mother, who is believed to be 42 years old. The incident occurred over the weekend, but the woman remains in serious condition due to the number and severity of the bites.

“She almost took off the thumb,” Chitwood said. “Nasty.”

In 2009, an Upper Darby man almost chopped off his fiancée’s middle finger, then bit her arm, because she didn’t place the cheese on his meatball sandwich correctly.

Last month, a bite-fight was reported behind the Hannum’s Harley Davidson shop in Chadds Ford. Police described it as a road-rage incident.

  1. I wanted to say I am so glad to finally be getting your posts in my Inbox. Since quite some time ago, I had subscribed to get your posts by email…. I couldn’t understand ‘why’ I didn’t get them… nor my other Blog Friend.

    Well, I’m happy to say that I discovered ‘why’ last night… I saw that all of my subscriptions were going to my SPAM! I was so hurt that all this time, I never got to read or comment. There were hundreds of posts in there.

    I’m glad to know this now… I clicked on all of the posts, then clicked on ‘Not Spam’…. they all went to my Inbox.. now, I’m receiving your posts, and everyone else’s. I’m so happy.

    I just wanted you to know I’m so glad to have you back! Now, it won’t be so ‘one-sided’… I can also, read and comment on your wonderful blog. Love, Granny Gee/Gloria :)))

    My gosh, this is just something else. Is it something in the water??
    This to me is a horrific attack – you’re so vulnerable in the bath. I hope the mother recovers okay, and I really hope the daughter is found AND DIAGNOSED.
