A California man is facing attempted murder charges after severely beating his 58-year-old mother with a baseball bat while dressed in drag. Christopher Castillo has not seen his mother in six years, but last Friday he told his sister he was traveling to Las Cruces, NM to kill his mother. The daughter called the mother to warn her, but didn't call police. Around 5 pm Monday Las Cruces police were dispatched to the victim's home after a neighbor reported seeing saw a man -- later identified as Christopher – -- wearing a white dress, high heels, stockings and a wig and walking toward a neighbor's home. A short while later, the witness heard screams and went to the neighbor's home where she saw Christopher armed with an aluminum baseball bat and standing over the victim. The witness yelled out and Christopher stopped assaulting his mother. The witness then helped the woman to her feet and to her home where she called 911. When cops found Christopher trying to flee the scene, he was wearing khaki pants, a white shirt and sneakers. The baseball bat was located near an alley nearby. The victim suffered a broken arm during the attack and was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, but it could've been a lot worse had she not used a chair to protect herself. Christopher remains jailed on $155,000 bond. There are so many unanswered questions. Like, why were they estranged for six years? Is he transgender or simply dressed in drag as a disguise?
