Teen Accused Of South Africa Family Murders
A teenager is due in court accused of killing his mother, baby sister, brother and gran with an axe in an apparent satanic ritual.
Monday 27 May 2013

A South African teenager has been arrested for allegedly hacking to death four family members with an axe, including his mother and an infant sister, in an apparent satanic attack.

The 14-year-old boy’s mother, 42, was found dead in the family’s corrugated iron-shack home, and the body of his three-month-old sister in a nearby field.

His 58-year-old grandmother and seven-year-old brother died in hospital….

The youngster, from the Etwatwa informal settlement east of Johannesburg, was captured by police within hours of fleeing the scene.

He was due to appear at Benoni Magistrates’ Court on Monday where he is expected to face charges of murder.

Police have not disclosed a possible motive for the murders, but community members told Eyewitness News the killings may have been part of a satanic ritual.

Sex initiation ritual another blight on ADFA
June 22, 2013
David Wroe   Defence correspondent
Male Defence Force recruits performed sexual acts on each other as an initiation ritual in a Canberra nightclub in the latest military scandal.

Just a week after the army revealed the ”Jedi Council” sex email affair, Defence announced on Friday about 20 young male cadets and midshipmen had engaged in ”serious misconduct” in an incident last weekend.

Fairfax Media understands the incident happened in a Canberra nightclub and involved drunken sexual acts performed by men on other men. The recruits were from the Australian Defence Force Academy, the Canberra military training institution that was also the site of the 2011 ”Skype affair”.

The ”hazing” or initiation ritual appears to have involved members of the ADFA rugby club.

The Vice Chief of the Defence Force, Air Marshal Mark Binskin, said most other recruits would be ”disgusted” by the activities of the group.

He said seven cadets and midshipmen had been suspended and further suspensions could be expected soon….

Night Stalker serial killer who terrorized California with a spree of satanic murders dies in hospital after 24 years on death row

Richard Ramirez, 53, died of liver failure while awaiting execution
Ramirez was convicted in 1989 of 13 murders and later tied to several more. He was a self-proclaimed follower of Satan
His trial was a horror show in which jurors heard about one victim’s eyes being gouged out and another’s head being nearly severed
He earned the nickname Night Stalker
By Associated Press Reporter and Daily Mail Reporter  7 June 2013

….Satanic symbols were left at murder scenes and some victims were forced to ‘swear to Satan’ by the killer, who entered homes through unlocked windows and doors.

After his conviction, Ramirez flashed a two-fingered ‘devil sign’ to photographers and muttered a single word: ‘Evil.’….

Food Addiction In Women Tied To Sexual, Physical Abuse During Childhood David Freeman 06/07/2013

But a shocking new study suggests that some cases of obesity grow out of sexual or physical abuse during childhood.

The study, conducted by scientists at Harvard Medical School, showed that women with a personal history of abuse are much more likely than other women to develop a food addiction.

For the study, a team led by Dr. Susan M. Mason, a postdoctoral fellow at the Connors Center for Women’s Health and Gender Biology, studied the link between childhood abuse and adult food addiction in 57,321 women enrolled in the Nurses’ Health Study II.

(Food addiction involves behaviors such as repeated episodes of eating despite the absence of hunger and experiencing withdrawal symptoms when cutting back on certain foods, Dr. Mason told The Huffington Post in an email.)

Dr. Mason’s team found that food addiction was almost twice as common among women who indicated that they had experienced sexual or physical abuse before age 18 than among women with no history of childhood abuse, according to a written statement released in conjunction with the research. Women who had experienced both sexual and physical abuse were even more likely to have food addiction.

Overall, the prevalence of food addiction ran from 6 percent in women with no history of childhood abuse all the way to 16 percent among women who had experienced both sexual and physical abuse….

But studies have turned up links between childhood abuse and obesity in men, Dr. Mason told The Huffington Post. One 2009 study of more than 15,000 adolescents found that men with a history of childhood sexual abuse were 66 percent more likely to be obese than other men, Time.com reported in 2010….

As Dr. Vincent Felitti, co-principal investigator of the California-based Adverse Childhood Experiences Study and an expert on the connection between childhood trauma and adult health problems, told Syracuse.com in 2010, “the relationship between childhood sexual abuse and obesity later in life is major, but, since childhood sexual abuse is a topic protected by shame and social taboo, it is concealed by time and by secrecy.”

Dr. Mason’s study was published in the journal Obesity.

Abuse victimization in childhood or adolescence and risk of food addiction in adult women

Abstract

Objective: Child abuse appears to increase obesity risk in adulthood, but the mechanisms are unclear. This study examined the association between child abuse victimization and food addiction, a measure of stress-related overeating, in 57,321 adult participants in the Nurses’ Health Study II (NHSII). Design and Methods: The NHSII ascertained physical and sexual child abuse histories in 2001 and current food addiction in 2009. Food addiction was defined as =3 clinically significant symptoms on a modified version of the Yale Food Addiction Scale. Confounder-adjusted risk ratios (RRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were estimated using modified Poisson regression. Results: Over eight percent of the sample reported severe physical abuse in childhood, while 5.3% reported severe sexual abuse. Eight percent met the criteria for food addiction. Women with food addiction were 6 units of BMI heavier than women without food addiction. Severe physical and severe sexual abuse were associated with roughly 90% increases in food addiction risk (physical abuse RR=1.92; 95% CI: 1.76, 2.09; sexual abuse RR=1.87; 95% CI: 1.69, 2.05). The RR for combined severe physical abuse and sexual abuse was 2.40 (95% CI: 2.16, 2.67). Conclusions: A history of child abuse is strongly associated with food addiction in this population.

How Childhood Trauma Can Cause Adult Obesity
By Maia Szalavitz Tuesday, Jan. 05, 2010

….In recent years, studies by both Felitti and others have largely confirmed the association between sexual abuse — as well as other types of traumatic childhood experience — and eating disorders or obesity. A 2007 study of more than 11,000 California women found that those who had been abused as children were 27% more likely to be obese as adults, compared with those who had not, after adjusting for other factors. A 2009 study of more than 15,000 adolescents found that sexual abuse in childhood raised the risk of obesity 66% in males in adulthood. That study found no such effect in women, but did find a higher risk of eating disorders in sexually abused girls….

Experts see strong link between sexual abuse and obesity
By Amber Smith July 25, 2010
Manlius, NY — More than half of the women Dr. Wendy Scinta takes care of at her Medical Weight Loss practice in Manlius have sexual abuse in their past.

Typically they lose weight, hit a plateau and put the pounds back on. Over and over again. Until they deal with their demons.

Scinta saw this happen so often, with up to 75 percent of her female patients, that the medical history she takes of new patients now includes questions about abuse. Her treatment involves helping patients be comfortable with the attention that comes with thinner bodies. Mandatory group therapy sessions take place weekly in her office’s conference room.

“If there’s obesity, there’s a good chance, especially if there’s morbid obesity, that something tragic happened in that person’s history, at one point or another,” she said. Those affected are mostly women, mostly 100 or more pounds overweight, and mostly binge eaters. All races, and all social classes are equally represented, she said….

Gauteng sees rise in Satanic ritual killings
Thursday 30 May 2013 SABC

Gauteng police say there has been a notable increase in the number of reported cases involving alleged Satanic ritual killings.

The latest incident involves a 14 year old boy accused of killing three of his family members. The teenager apparently said an unusual prayer before midnight last Thursday – in what may have been a Satanic ritual.

Early this year, a learner, Keamogetswe Sefularo was stabbed to death in an alleged satanic ritual in Randfontein on the West Rand….

The Church of Satan in South Africa has meanwhile distanced itself from murder as part of their religious rituals. There have been allegations that the boy is a member of the Satanist church….

Cardinal George Pell admits Church covered up cases of child sex abuse  By Brigid Andersen Mon May 27, 2013
Australia’s top-ranking Catholic has admitted to a Victorian parliamentary inquiry that some members of the Church tried to cover up child sexual abuse by other members of the clergy.

Cardinal George Pell told the inquiry he was “fully apologetic and absolutely sorry” about decades of child sex abuse within the Church….

Key points: What Pell told the inquiry
Apologised for decades of abuse in Melbourne diocese.
Admitted a systemic cover-up of child abuse within the Church.
Said former Ballarat bishop Ronald Mulkearns destroyed documents relating to abuse cases.
Said former Melbourne archbishop Frank Little covered up cases of abuse.
Said abuse became widespread because the clergy did not talk about the problem.
Defended the Melbourne Response, which he established to deal with abuse cases.
Defended maximum compensation level of $75,000 for victims of abuse….

In its submission to the inquiry, the Catholic Church said at least 620 Victorian children had been abused by its clergy in the past 80 years….

Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry: NI victims launch joint campaign  29 May 2013
Abuse victims whose cases are excluded from a Stormont inquiry into historical child abuse have united in a campaign for their allegations to be included.

The Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry is examining allegations of abuse in state-run children’s homes and other institutions in Northern Ireland.
However, victims of clerical child abuse and former residents of Magdalene laundry-style institutions in Northern Ireland are excluded from the remit.

They have launched a joint campaign. The two groups were due to call for the remit of the Historic Institutional Abuse Inquiry to be widened.

The inquiry, chaired by retired judge Sir Anthony Hart, was set up by the Stormont Executive and is examining cases from 1922 to 1995.
It will also determine if there were systemic failings by the state, or institutions, in their duties towards children under 18.

It was originally set up to investigate cases going back as far as 1945, but it was later extended to cover the period back to the foundation of the state in 1922….

‘Satanic ritual was badly planned’

‘Satanic ritual was badly planned’      
April 30 2013 By SAPA
Johannesburg – An apparent satanic ritual after which a teenage girl died was badly planned, the High Court sitting in the Palm Ridge Magistrate’s Court heard on Tuesday.

Lester Moody, who has admitted to his role in the killing, said the group failed to discuss in detail what each individual would do during the ritual.

Having Kirsty Theologo, the intended murder victim, at the meeting was another blunder.

Moody was testifying against four people accused of setting alight Theologo and her 14-year-old friend in an alleged satanic ritual on October 21, 2011.

He and Jeremy King have pleaded guilty to the crime and were sentenced to 17 years in jail, five of them suspended, under a plea bargain with the State.

The four Harvey Isha, Robin Harwood, Lindon Wagner, and Courtney Daniels have pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, attempted murder, and assault to cause grievous bodily harm….
