OCEAN CITY, N.J. (TND) — A bizarre and gruesome tragedy played out when police got a 911 call from a man who told the dispatcher “he was bipolar and had just killed his mother.”

That’s from Jeffrey Surgent’s arrest report, late Friday afternoon in New Jersey, and surveillance video shows what happened.

Officers found Surgent “nude in the hallway, lying on top of a headless body.

“The head was located several feet away in the same hallway.

“Patrol placed Jeffrey Surgent in handcuffs and the apartment was cleared for safety.”

Then, as police took him away, “Surgent screamed over and over that he had killed his mother and he was sorry.

“He then began to sing ‘Jesus Loves Me.’”

The victim was identified as his 74-year-old mother, Alexandri Surgent.

Police described Jeffrey Surgent as being “covered in blood,” and they reported getting surveillance video of the incident from the hallway.

This is how they described it.

“Initially, you can see a head come out of the apartment at a high rate of speed.

“The head hits the wall and rolls to where it was found.

“A short time later, Jeffrey Sergeant is seen peeking out from the apartment, then pulling his mother’s body into the hallway.

“He is nude and proceeds to lay on top of her until patrol arrives.”

Later, authorities determined Surgent, 46, used a knife to decapitate his mother.

The prosecutor’s office said he’s charged with murder, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and unlawful possession of a weapon, and that he’s “in police custody at a secure medical facility.”
