Viewer discretion is advised for this educational documentary.
Welcome or welcome back to Dark Case Documentaries, where we bring you true crime stories and other disturbing narratives that you may later regret knowing. In this episode, we delve into the chilling case of Isabella Guzman, a teenager whose shocking crime went viral on TikTok.
Isabella Guzman was born in Aurora, Colorado, in June of 1995. When she was four years old, her parents divorced, and she went to live with her father. However, as she grew older, Isabella struggled with behavioral issues and was sent to live with her mother and stepfather as a teenager. Unfortunately, her behavior continued to worsen, leading to strained relationships within the family.
On August 27, 2013, Isabella and her mother got into a heated argument, which ended with Isabella spitting in her mother's face. Concerned for her safety, her mother called the police, and they visited the house to speak with Isabella. While the police intervention seemed to calm her down momentarily, Isabella's mother still felt uneasy. She called Isabella's biological father, who had a long conversation with her in hopes of resolving the situation.
The following day, August 28, 2013, Isabella's mother returned home from work and went upstairs to take a shower. Shortly after, her stepfather heard thuds and bangs coming from upstairs, followed by a scream. He rushed to check on his wife but found Isabella in the bathroom with her, holding a sharp implement. Isabella quickly locked the door, and her stepfather was unable to get in. When he noticed a pool of blood seeping out from under the door, he called 911.
Isabella's mother was found brutally attacked, with approximately 79 wounds inflicted upon her. Isabella fled the scene but was quickly apprehended by the police. She wore the same blood-stained clothes she had during the attack. Despite her denial and claims of mistaken identity, Isabella was charged with her mother's murder.
During her arraignment hearing, Isabella exhibited strange behavior, making disturbing faces and pointing at her eyes while looking at the camera. She pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, with her defense team arguing that she suffered from schizophrenia and had experienced delusions leading up to the attack. Isabella claimed that she believed she was attacking someone named Cecilia to save the world, not realizing she was attacking her own mother.
The court accepted Isabella's plea, and she was sent to the Colorado Mental Health Institute for treatment. However, in November 2020, she filed a motion for release, stating that she was no longer a danger to herself or others. Her request was denied.
