The 911 call surrounding the killing of an 81-year-old woman has been released.
During the afternoon of January 16, police say 59-year-old Elizabeth Ramirez picked up a phone and dialed 911.
Ramirez wasn't looking for help. Rather, she gave a confession.
"Umm, my mother is dead," said Ramirez, to a 911 operator over the phone.
During the call, Ramirez appeared very aware of what she was confessing to, and even after admitting to strangling 81-year-old Bertha Hermosillo, she didn't appear to have any remorse.
The 911 operator asked her to attempt CPR.
"I ain't startin' CPR on her," said Ramirez.
"Why not?" asked the 911 operator.
"Because she has tormented our entire family," said Ramirez.
How do you know she is deceased?" asked the 911 operator.
"Well, uhh, I'm hoping she is," said Ramirez, explained what made her snap during the 911 call.
"I needed to borrow the keys to the car and she refused me. She proceeded to tell me how mentally ill I am, and I snapped because she's been telling me that since I've been old enough to speak," said Ramirez.
