Yet another of those “harmless” schizophrenics that deranged judges and activists have blessed us with. “He’s fine when he takes his meds.”

Except when he doesn’t.

The accused monster appears almost gleeful after the grisly death and dismemberment of Tanya Byrd, 52, whose body parts were stuffed into garbage bags and dumped in four South Bronx locations.

Bashid McLean, 23, has confessed to killing and cutting up the corpse of his mother Tanya Byr [sic], say sources.

The alleged killer used a two-foot Black and Decker jigsaw to carve up the corpse. The photo of the gruesome aftermath was discovered by police on McLean’s cell phone.

Police guard a sheet-covered plastic bag near the intersection of Eagle Avenue and 158th street in the Bronx, on Tuesday, Feb. 26, where a man walking his dog earlier discovered the remains of Tanya Bird.

The baby-faced McLean, 23, was arrested Tuesday after a dog-walker spied his mother’s leg protruding from a pile of garbage near the apartment where she was butchered.

Tanya Byrd’s dismembered remains were discovered February 26, after her son killed her, say cops.
Sources said he later confessed to the horrifying homicide.

McLean remains jailed after a Thursday court appearance. Family members said the deranged suspect had a history of violence.


The party's over--or is it? Bashid McLean under arrest, escorted by NYPD detectives, in February 2013. He only came to trial on October 16, 2016; his defense attorney is playing the "crazy card."
