A Minnesota Woman Was Going to Leave Her Boyfriend. So He Chopped Off Her Head with a Machete and Dumped Her Body on the Street.
A Minnesota man was convicted of beheading his girlfriend with a machete and then dumping her body on the street.
On May 11, a judge in Scott County found Alexis Saborit, 42, guilty of the first-degree murder of America Thayer, 55, almost two years ago, KMSP reported.
Around 2:30 p.m. on July 28, 2021, an eyewitness phoned 911 after seeing Saborit throw a headless body from his vehicle into an intersection in Shakopee.
Responding officer discovered the body and a head, both later identified as belonging to Thayer, next to a car. Investigators recovered a knife sheath and knife in the area and then located and took the suspected killer, Saborit, into custody.
According to an indictment obtained by KMSP, days prior to the gruesome slaying, Saborit allegedly was laughing when he told a friend that he was “going to chop her f****ing head off.”

Police claim Saborit fatally wounded Thayer because she was threatening to end their relationship.
Defense attorneys argued in court that Saborit battled mental health issues at the time of the murder, but the judge on the case refuted those claims. “[Saborit] used both an 8-pound dumbbell and machete during his assault,” the judge noted. “[His] decision to put down the dumbbell and use the machete is evidence of a deliberate mental thought process.”
The defendant’s next court appearance is scheduled for June 1.
