Nathaniel Sebastian murders mom, Susan Mayo, buries her under the porch, confesses, gets out of jail in error, turns himself in

An Alabama man being suspected of murdering his mother was accidentally released on bond Wednesday afternoon, but later turned himself back in to authorities.

Yes, the headline is correct. The story goes: “Nathaniel Sebastian murders mom, Susan Mayo, buries her under the porch, confesses, gets out of jail in error, turns himself in” so here it is…

Nathaniel Sebastian was charged in the November 2017 murder of his mother, Susan Mayo, who was found dead in a barrel buried under the front porch of Sebastian’s home, a trailer which he shared with his mom.

Nathaniel Sebastian, murdered his mom, Susan Mayo (right), but was released from jail due to a clerical error. Then he turned himself in.

“Okay, y’all got me, I killed my mom and she’s under the porch,” the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) detective said Sebastian told investigators while they were executing a search warrant on September 6, 2017.

Sebastian shot his mother once in the head, then took a nap, and when he woke up, he was still angry at her, so he punched her dead body a few times, and went back to sleep.

Afterward, he put Mayo in a barrel and began burying her, and while in the process of doing that, he broke the handle off of a shovel.

The investigator says Sebastian and his grandmother, Doris Clark, relocated the gun used in the murder to her house then gave the gun to Sebastian’s brother, who did not know the history of the gun.

When Sebastian’s brother was questioned by deputies, he said that when he asked Sebastian about his mother, he said not to worry and that he “he took care of it.”

Mayo was found in the barrel and Sebastian confessed.

Now fast forward to this month, when according to the court file, Judge Michael Youngpeter set Sebastian’s bond at $250,000 on November 16, 2018 after he was indicted by a Mobile County Grand Jury on murder and abuse of corpse charges.

According to the Mobile County Sheriffs Office, the indictment that was handed down on September 21, 2018, was never sent to the jail.
On August 12, 2019, Sebastian, 34, filed a pro se motion (a term for a person who represents himself) for a bond reduction and during a hearing the next day, the bond reduction motion was set for August 28 at 9:00 am.

On August 20, Sebastian posted three bonds for $25,000 each, for a total of $75,000, which were approved by Circuit Court Judge Jill Phillips.

There is no indication in the court file that a judge reduced Sebastian’s bond at any time. Mobile Metro Jail had no record of a grand jury indictment on Sebastian that had the bond set at $250,000.

Sebastian was released from Mobile Metro Jail on August 21 at 2:15 pm.

According to jail records, he turned himself back in yesterday at 2:24 pm.

Sebastian also posted bond on the abuse of corpse charge.

Judge Phillips issued an arrest warrant for Sebastian Thursday morning and set a no bond condition.
>The clerk’s office declined to say whether the employee who made the clerical error is still employed there.

“We can’t answer that question,” a woman who answered the phone at the clerk’s office told AL.com.
