Isabella Guzman is the name that has caused storms on the social network TikTok during the past time because of her somewhat fresh and innocent smile in court. Some netizens even commented that Isabella Guzman looked so beautiful when she smiled. However, when knowing the crime behind this young girl, many people will surely regret it and say: “Devil dressed as an angel“.
The girl with a bright smile when going to court caused a storm
In 2013, when Isabella Guzman was 18 years old, she brutally stabbed his own mother to death at her home in Aurora, Colorado, USA. The young girl at that time had to appear in court for being charged with first-degree murder and the circumstances of the case were no different from a horror movie.
On the evening of August 28, 2013, like any other normal day, Ms. Yun-Mi Hoy (47 years old), returned home from her night shift and entered the bathroom. At this time, her daughter Isabella is in her own room and her step-husband Ryan Hoy is eating alone in the kitchen downstairs.
Not long after Mrs. Yun-Mi Hoy entered the bathroom, Mr. Ryan Hoy suddenly heard a strange noise upstairs and the faint cry of his wife for help. He rushed up the stairs and went to the bathroom to check on the situation. The man tried to forcefully push the closed door but couldn’t. Through the crack in the door, he could clearly see his wife’s stepdaughter, Isabella, trying to lock the door and lock it.
Realizing that there was fresh blood leaking out, Mr. Ryan Hoy panicked and called the police. And when he ran back to the bathroom, suddenly, the door opened, Isabella came out, holding a long knife, and calmly walked past her stepfather, down the stairs as if nothing happened. The dead man stood when he looked into the bathroom, seeing his wife naked, lying unconscious in a pool of blood.
Approaching to check, he panicked when he saw that his wife’s neck had been cut many times, her face was covered with slash marks. When the police arrived, it was too late and the victim died on the spot. Autopsy results showed that the 18-year-old girl stabbed her mother many times with a knife in the face and neck.
Meanwhile, Isabella Guzman took the knife to run away from home. At that time, the young girl, wearing a pink sports shirt and blue shorts, disappeared into the dark. However, the very next day, police arrested the perpetrator on Parker Road, Hampden Avenue. At this time, the reason why the young girl killed her mother in such a barbaric way was revealed.
“She will pay the price”
After her parents divorced, Isabella Guzman lived with her mother and stepfather in a house in Aurora. According to her stepfather, from an early age, Isabella Guzman often argued with her mother over small things in life such as dressing or walking.
As she got older, Isabella became more dangerous and disrespectful to her mother. The stepfather recalled: “Once he yelled at his mother and spit in her face.”
The stepfather shared more on the media: “Her mother was worried about her personality many times and asked me to explain it to Isabella. So I went to talk to Isabella. That day, I spoke to let Isabella know. let her understand that, as a child, it is necessary to be respectful and respectful to parents, not to rebel, both mother and daughter need to listen to each other more.She was very attentive at that time and everything seemed to me. like it looks good”.
Mr. Ryan Hoy did not expect that Isabella was plotting to harm her mother. On the night before the bloody crime was committed, in a threatening email to his mother, the son wrote: “You will pay the price”.
According to the initial investigation, Isabella seems to have become very frustrated and angry with her mother since the break up of the family. Isabella loved her father, but because of working conditions, the biological father could not take his daughter to adopt. In the early days of breaking up, Isabella cried a lot and expressed great disappointment. Even the young girl lost 2kg after only two months of living with her mother.
At that time, Isabella often blamed her mother’s scolding and dismissing her father for causing the family to fall apart. Even when she was an adult, Isabella would occasionally recall how her mother divided the father-son relationship. Mr. Robert Guzman, Isabella’s father, said he was shocked when he heard that his daughter had killed her mother because just three hours before, he and Isabella were still chatting happily. In the eyes of Mr. Robert Guzman, the beautiful daughter is a obedient child.
The final ending
Isabella in everyone’s eyes is a sociable, good-natured and friendly girl, but when she returns home, she becomes a different person, always angry and irritable with her mother. Isabella is always looking for ways to fight with her mother or find ways to oppose her.
And Mrs. Yun-Mi Hoy, although she loved her daughter very much, she was helpless in the face of her daughter’s stubbornness. The more she took care of her, the more disruptive the child became. Isabella once cut her mother’s clothes because she accidentally put them on her daughter’s bed. She lobbied the stepfather to convince and explain to her daughter, but the results did not go anywhere.
The stepfather recounted that Isabella was a regular at school concerts and was a member of a rock band at her school. On her personal Facebook pages, Isabella posts many brilliant and beautiful photos. He and everyone around him did not think that this person could be so cold-blooded.
When Isabella’s friends heard about her mother’s murder, most of them didn’t believe it. Although everyone’s friends knew that Isabella and her mother often had conflicts, no one thought that she would dare to harm her mother so cruelly. In the dizzyingly shared clip on social media, TikTok recorded the unusual move of Isabella in court.
The young girl showed no fear or remorse. She walked confidently and smiled brightly when the camera turned to her. The judge said Isabella had suffered from a paranoid schizophrenia, causing hallucinations, not knowing what was false or real.
At the 2014 trial, doctors confirmed that Isabella suffered from schizophrenia and lived in paranoia for many years. Isabella said that, at the time, she did not know she had killed her mother, but believed that the person she killed was a woman named Cecelia. She killed Cecelia to save the world. In the end, Isabella did not receive a prison sentence but instead went to receive treatment at Pueblo Psychiatric Hospital, Colorado.
Seven years later Isabella shared that she was ready to reintegrate into society. Isabella said: “I wasn’t myself when I did it and I have fully recovered.”
In a conversation with Sallinger in November 2020, this girl said: “The fight with my mother was terrible. I have suffered from domestic violence for many years. The abuse became worse when I was I was 14 years old just because I didn’t follow a religion called Jehovah’s Witnesses, which my mother had a great deal of devotion to.”
