A South Florida woman gouged out her mother’s eyeballs and placed them on a nearby cardboard box. Camille Balla, 32, faces a charge of first-degree murder in connection with the death of her mother, Francisca Monteiro-Balla.
According to a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office affidavit, Balla called a co-worker and asked for help because Balla “believed she may have murdered her mother.” The unidentified co-worker arrived at the Royal Palm Beach home and saw Balla standing outside covered in blood, the co-worker called 911. When deputies arrived, Balla said, “I killed my mother and I need help.”
When deputies entered the home, they found blood splatter throughout the house and Balla’s 55-year-old mother dead in the garage.
“Both of her eyes had been removed from their sockets,” Detective Mathew Orr wrote in the affidavit. “Several feet away from the victim was a cardboard box which had the victim’s eyes found on top.” Deputies said Balla was being treated by paramedics at the scene when she started to scream, I’m a murderer.”
A judge Monday ordered Balla to undergo a mental health evaluation. She remains in jail without bond.
