Kentucky man blames multiple personality disorder for alleged murder attempt
A 19-year-old Kentucky man is accused of trying to strangle a woman to death in a cemetery -- but the story doesn't end there.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A 19-year-old Kentucky man is accused of trying to strangle a woman to death in a cemetery -- but the story doesn't end there.
Police arrested Brice Gross on Saturday in Georgetown, Kentucky. They say he attacked the woman, whom he'd never met before, and tried to strangle her.
According to his arrest citation, Gross told police that he planned to choke the woman until she was unconscious, then put her body in her own car. Police say he planned to put a rock on the car's gas pedal and send it into a body of water.
Gross claims he was visiting his uncle's grave when he blacked out -- and went into a different personality.
"I vaguely remember getting her to the ground and running," he said. "That's just about it. I don't remember anything else...I don't doubt that it did happen, but since it happened, my personalities are very dangerous, apparently."
Gross says he has several hundred personalities that he deals with, but says nothing violent like this has ever happened before.
He's charged with attempted murder and kidnapping.
