On Wednesday, January 11, authorities arrested a man who confessed to beheading his newlywed wife, Anggy Diaz, at their Texas home. Although police have yet to release the victim’s name, family members identified her as 21-year-old Anggy Diaz.
Waller County Sheriff Troy Guidry said police arrested Jared Dicus, 21, in the death of his wife after the perpetrator confessed to cutting off her head. Guidry said law enforcement learned of the gruesome murder after they were alerted to a report that a person had been found dead in a rural Texas home.
The newlyweds, who married in October last year, reportedly lived in a residence behind the suspect’s family home. Dicus’s parents called police after they found the body of his daughter-in-law Anggy Díaz without her head at the couple’s residence.
Upon arrival, police found family members, including suspect Jared Dicus, at the crime scene with the deceased. Guidry said Dicus was arrested at the scene and confessed to killing his wife.
Anggy Díaz was murdered a day before the authorities discovered her body
At a news conference, Waller County Sheriff Troy Guidry said authorities believe Anggy Diaz, a newlywed from Texas, was killed by her husband a day before they were alerted to the report of “a possible deceased person” on Wednesday, January 11.
Authorities said the local police department was alerted to the crime around 4:18 p.m. m. Wednesday by the suspect’s family, who lived on the property with the newlyweds. Upon arrival, police found the body of a 21-year-old Hispanic female in a residence located behind the suspect’s family home. They noted that only her body was discovered in the house, but her head was missing.
Police later found the knife, believed to be the murder weapon, with a severed head on it on the property. Police estimated the victim was killed around 11 p.m. Tuesday.
Describing the gruesome scene to reporters, Guidry said:
“It was a body part, dismembered, and a residence covered in blood, a gruesome scene, at best.”
Police added that prior to the incident, the couple was investigated for a report of minor disturbances at their home.
