Disturbed murder suspect physically attacks her attorney in the courtroom

A video recently obtained by ABC 7 showed Taylor Schabusiness, physically attacking her attorney, Quinn Jolly, in a Brown County circuit courtroom.

Schabusiness was previously charged with first-degree intentional homicide, mutilating a corpse, and third-degree sexual assault. Jolly had asked for a two-week extension to give a defense expert time to speak about Schabusiness’ competency for trial.

Tuesday’s competency hearing was postponed until March 6. Schabusiness is set to plead not guilty by insanity, and has had several evaluations to see if she is mentally fit for trial.

On February 23, 2022, police responded to a call from Shad Thyrion’s mother after she discovered her son’s severed head in a bucket in the basement.

A criminal complaint stated that police found Schabusiness at her home, where she had dried blood on her clothing. In her van, they allegedly found a crockpot box containing additional human body parts, including legs.

She allegedly told Green Bay Police that she and Thyrion smoked meth while spending the day together. Schabusiness allegedly told police that she didn’t mean to kill Thyrion, but enjoyed the choking and continued to do it.

The complaint stated that she dismembered the body and used knives obtained from the kitchen of the residence, and that a bread knife worked the best because of the serrated blade.

Schabusiness is being held on a $2 million bond. In his obituary, Thyrion was described as someone who “enjoyed camping, games, and spending time with his family. He was a very kind and compassionate person who often thought of others before himself.”
