Biography Edit

Little is known about this individual save that she was a middle-aged woman of presumably Mexican descent. She was a mental patient at Briarcliff Manor in the early 1960s. The exact nature of her condition is unknown.

The Mexican most kept to herself, but was considered safe enough to allow her general access in the asylum's common room. The ward mother of the asylum, Sister Jude Martin, would often play a record of the French song "Dominique" to keep the patients in a calm mood.

One evening while in her room, the Mexican was visited by another nun, Mary Eunice McKee. Sister Mary Eunice was possessed by a demon at this time, and found the Mexican in prayer. Sister Mary Eunice forced the Mexican to complete the prayer, and then stabbed her repeatedly in the neck and stomach with a pair of scissors. [2]
