Katy Thompkins, Kaylee Muthart’s mom, has recently opened up about her daughter’s tragedy. Kaylee Muthart had shocked an entire nation when she gouged out her own eyes in front of the Anderson County church at the beginning of February. The 20-year-old is still in the hospital but, according to her mother, her condition has greatly improved since she was brought in.
Kaylee Muthart Consumed Methamphetamine Laced with Another Substance
On the 6th of February, soon after taking an undisclosed amount of spiked methamphetamine, Kaylee Muthart, gouged out her own eyes on the nearby railway and then wandered off, until she was discovered by a couple of churchgoers.
Horrified by the sight of the 20-year-old woman holding her eyeballs in hands, the pastor told some of his most faint-hearted parishioners to head back inside the church and wait for the authorities to arrive and pick up the young woman in distress.
According to the authorities, Kaylee Muthart was apprehensive even before the arrival of the paramedics, shoving anyone who tried to get closer. It took the combined efforts of several paramedics, police officers, and churchgoers in order to subdue the young woman and to get her inside the ambulance.
Unfortunately, following the incident, the woman was left blind. When confronted by the authorities, Kaylee Muthart recalls slipping in and out of consciousness and something about a disembodied voice ordering her to gouge out her own eyes if she wanted to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
Muthart’s tox screen revealed that she consumed a high dose of methamphetamine laced with an unknown substance. The combination induced vivid auditory and visual hallucinations which prompted the woman to harm herself.
Following the incident, Kaylee’s mother took it upon herself to warn other parents about the devastating effects of drug abuse.
