Older Alaskan satanist branded daughter’s neck, thigh, ma says By Francis Scarcella The Daily Item February 8, 2014
CARY, N.C…..Police said Miranda told them she met LaFerrara on Craigslist and after an arranged meeting, the engineer began to grope her, so she pulled a knife from between the seats of her Honda CRV and began to stab him before blacking out.
LaFerrara was knifed at least 20 times, police said….
She went on to discuss her daughter’s childhood.
“(Miranda) ran away from home when she was 12,” Dean said. Her daughter grew up in Alaska and has an older sister, Dean said.
“(Miranda) got hooked up with a guy (in Alaska) who was into satanic stuff, and when she came home one day, she told me that he owns her now.”
The man’s name was Forrest, Dean said.
“I asked her what she was talking about, and she told me that this man owns her and she has to do whatever he says,” Dean said. “She said he branded her by carving a swastika on the back of her neck and his name on her thigh.
“She told me she was out prostituting at 12 years old and that this man was her ruler.”….
“I told (Miranda) when she was in Alaska, she needed to stop all of this and get away from these (satanic) people,” Dean said. “She was involved in this satanic stuff and this man (Forrest) still has a hold on her. It’s heart-breaking.”
One day Miranda came home and said she wanted to change her life, so Dean sent her to North Carolina to live with Miranda’s uncle, Arlin Fletcher….
Miranda told her mother that Elytte became engaged in the satanic world after Miranda and Elytte became romantically involved.
“She told me he liked it, but she said, ‘Mom, I can’t put him on the panel because Forrest won’t let me.’”
Dean didn’t know what the panel meant. She said she knows her daughter participated in satanic rituals, but was unsure about the nature of them.
“I have no idea,” she said. “I know if you talk to Elf, he will say she (Miranda) killed plenty of times before, but I just don’t know. I asked her and she said ‘Never.’”
Elytte told The Daily Item on Dec. 4 that the father of Miranda’s child was dead. He wouldn’t get into details that day.
“He is not dead,” Dean said. “But we don’t know who the father is. It could be one of several people.”…. http://www.dailyitem.com/0100_news/x1280779959/Lockup-to-Miranda-s-mom-You-can-t-visit
Is 19-Year-Old Miranda Barbour Really a Mass Murderer?
By Robert Kolker 2/27/14
This winter, America discovered a new Craigslist killer—a 19-year-old woman named Miranda Barbour, arrested in December along with her husband, Elytte Barbour, for the murder of a 42-year-old man named Troy LaFerrara, whom they lured in with a Craigslist sex ad. Now in jail awaiting trial, Barbour told a reporter in January that she’s killed dozens of others — she says she “stopped counting” at 22 — all as part of a Satanic cult.
To be sure, there is a lot to take in at once with Barbour’s story, much of which inverts the serial-killer archetype as we’ve come to understand it: She’s female and a teenager, and her story involves sexual abuse, Satanism, institutionalization, drug addiction, mental illness, bad boyfriends, and a two-year-old child now out of her custody. Based on the rough outlines of Barbour’s biography, she would have had to have started around age 13 to do what she claims to have done. http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2014/02/miranda-barbour-really-a-mass-murderer.html

He and the others then chanted a poem calling on the beast to awaken, but nothing happened.
Wagner said he and his co-accused had hoped to gain certain things from the ritual. He was hoping to gain power.
He told the court they drew a five-pointed star and put a Bible in a fire….
Two others, Lester Moody and Jeremy King, earlier confessed to the killing and were sentenced to 17-years in prison, five of which were suspended.
Irish priest found guilty of child sex abuse in Australia
Padraig Collins Mon, Nov 4, 2013
Father Finian Egan (78) convicted on seven counts of indecent assault and one count of rape
An Irish priest has been found guilty of child sex offences committed in New South Wales over a period of 26 years.
Father Finian Egan was convicted in the Australian District Court on seven counts of indecent assault and one count of rape between 1961 and 1987, while he worked as a priest at two parishes in Sydney and one on the state’s central coast. He was found not guilty on one count of indecent assault.
Egan (78), who worked as a priest and youth worker in several dioceses, was found guilty of repeatedly abusing girls aged 10 to 17….
After Egan told the girl she had “beautiful hair”, she asked a nun to cut it off.
“I thought if I didn’t have nice hair he wouldn’t be interested in grabbing hold of me,” she said.
When the victim, who cannot be named, eventually told a nun about the sexual abuse by Egan, she was called a “filthy little liar” and forced to drink several doses of castor oil as punishment….
Egan had denied the allegations against him.
In May 2008 Egan was allowed to go home to Ireland and say Mass, despite allegations of sexual abuse against him. The Irish Catholic Church was not warned about the allegations.

Abuse victims await truth in Vic report AAP Patrick Caruana and Daniel Fogarty – November 5, 2013
No amount of time or institutional muscle can match the power of the truth.
With the impending release of a Victorian parliamentary inquiry report, it appears the truth of institutional responses to child abuse is about to come out.
Abuse survivors have high hopes for the report’s findings, which come after an arduous 12 months of hearings around the state, involving often graphic and harrowing stories of sexual and physical abuse.
Judy Courtin, who is doing a PhD on sexual abuse and the Catholic Church, said the release of the report was hugely significant for victims.
“I think it will be a huge day for the victims and their families,” she said….
Among the testimony was the startling accusation from police that the Catholic Church destroyed evidence, shielded pedophile clergy members and put its own image ahead of the needs of victims.
In its response, the church acknowledged past failures but said it was not aware of a single example of a clergy authority not cooperating with police….

Satanic trial: Alleged mastermind testifies
Johannesburg – The alleged mastermind of a deadly satanic ritual expected Satan to appear after calling on him in a chant, the High Court in Johannesburg, sitting in Palm Ridge, heard on Friday.
“I expected something to happen,” said Linden Wagner, who wrote the poem that he and his accomplices chanted after he assaulted and set alight his friend Kirsty Theologo, 18, and throttled her 14-year-old friend.
“In American films, people who sold their souls died physically and then came back to life,” he said.
On Wednesday, Wagner testified that he had wanted to sell his soul so he could gain power.
“When you sell your soul, you gain something. You can gain money, power and fame,” he said.
The attack on Theologo and her friend occurred at a hill in Linmeyer, in Johannesburg south, in October 2011.
Theologo died of her injuries a week later, but her friend survived….

Polish Archbishop Jozef Michalik Sex Abuse Comments Prompt Outrage: ‘Child Seeking Love’ Because Of Divorced Parents
WARSAW, Oct 8 (Reuters) – Poland’s most senior Catholic cleric said children with divorced parents were sometimes more vulnerable to sexual abuse by priests, remarks that prompted a storm of outrage though the church later said it was a slip of the tongue.
The comments from Archbishop Jozef Michalik entrenched the view among some younger Poles that the church is out of touch with modern society and failing to properly confront allegations of sexual abuse by priests.
In comments shown on Tuesday by broadcaster TVN24, Michalik said child sexual abuse by priests was unacceptable, but the debate about it needed to be broadened out beyond the immediate physical or psychological wounds inflicted on the victims.
“And one has to say … how many wounds are inflicted when parents divorce? We often hear that this inappropriate attitude (paedophilia), or abuse, manifests itself when a child is seeking love,” said the clergyman, who is head of the Roman Catholic episcopate in Poland….

JOHANNESBURG – A 15-year-old Johannesburg girl has confessed to stabbing her friend to death as part of a Satanic ritual.
The teenager has told the Palm Ridge High Court she killed her schoolmate in order to move up the ranks of a Satanic cult in Randfontein, west of Johannesburg.
The accused says Keamogetswe Sefularo posed a threat to the group, because she could identify its members and knew about the cult’s practices.
She claims these rituals include visiting graveyards and members cutting themselves and sucking each other’s blood….
