The Satanic Sex Cult Leader Who Loved Animal Sacrifices, Orgies, and Murder
“The Devil You Know,” a new docuseries premiering Aug. 27 on Viceland, explores the horrifying life of Pazuzu Algarad, a disturbed Satanist who ran a house of horrors.
Nick Schager 08.22.19
Pazuzu Algarad (real name: John Lawson) was a self-proclaimed Satanist who reveled in extremeness. With a moniker borrowed from The Exorcist, a face covered in tattoos and his teeth sharpened to fine points, Pazuzu spent his days and nights in his Clemmons, North Carolina, home cutting himself and his buddies, drinking the blood of birds, doing copious drugs, performing ritual sacrifices of rabbits, staging nude orgies, and letting people do whatever they pleased to his abode—including popping a squat in the corner of a room, and then leaving the mess to be eaten by one of his many dogs….
Before it begins trying to derive Meaningful Lessons from its material, The Devil You Know proves a riveting case study of a unique madman. Residing with his mother in Clemmons (a suburb of Winston-Salem), Pazuzu lived and breathed his depraved ethos, which was influenced by a combination of horror movies, ‘80s black metal, and Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan. In copious old photographs, Pazuzu appears to be just as scary as his reputation suggested—minus the split tongue that rumors said he gave himself. He routinely bragged about killing people, and in 2010, he and cohort Nicholas Rizzi were charged in connection with the shooting death of an African-American man, Joseph Emmrick Chandler, near the Yadkin River….
A second, more thorough examination of the property followed, and led to the discovery of two bodies: Tommy Dean Welch and Josh Wetzler, the latter of whom had been missing, much to the concern of former girlfriend Stacey Carter (with whom he’d had a young son), for five years.
Pazuzu had killed and buried these men with the help of two fiancées, Amber Burch and Krystal Matlock, and he had dispatched them in the presence of his mother Cynthia, with whom he lived. Those facts, coupled with Pazuzu’s devil worship, attracted national media attention, and The Devil You Know benefits from the participation of many key figures, as well as considerable archival news reports and police footage of the inside of Pazuzu’s house, which lives up to stomach-churning expectations….

Autopsies show victims at Clemmons house were shot in the head
Michael Hewlett/Winston-Salem Journal Apr 29, 2015
….Dr. Jerri McLemore, a Forsyth County medical examiner who works at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, did the autopsies of both men. McLemore finished the reports earlier this month. McLemore declared both deaths the result of homicide.
Authorities have released few details about the killings, including whether they have found the gun or guns used to kill Welch and Wetzler. The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office has not said what connection the two men may have had to Algarad and Burch.
According to court documents, Algarad regularly performed “Satanistic rituals” and animal sacrifices at the house.

‘Satanic serial killer’ used ‘fingers of seven murder victims to make devil-symbol’
The victims, whose bodies were all found between 2002 and 2004, were each found with two fingers amputated, it is reported
By Ana Lacasa 15 FEB 2019
A suspected Satanic serial killer has been arrested for allegedly murdering seven people and cutting hexagrams into their skin.
Tomas Maldonado Cera, 48, is accused of mutilating his victims by removing their fingers and using them to create a devil-worshipping symbol on their bodies.
Nicknamed “El Satanico” (the Satanist), Maldonado was arrested in Barranquilla, Atlantico, Columbia, after the body of Brenda Parajo Bruno was found in a woodland area.
Bruno was reportedly raped and killed after taking her disabled daughter to a rehabilitation centre where Maldonado is said to have been working as a driver.
Maldonado, who is married with four children, was made the main suspect and reports state he had had a sexual relationship with Bruno, which her family denies.
The suspect was arrested and held in preventative prison at El Bosque prison in Barranquilla after being charged with the murder.
Authorities then quickly linked him to the deaths of four men and another two women.
All the bodies of the victims had similar features, reports said.
Each body reportedly had two fingers amputated and had middle and ring fingers placed so they created the “Voor” symbol, which according to local authorities is considered as a sign of saying “I love Satan, I love Lucifer” and is often used in a ritual supposedly to call demons.
The bodies, all found between 2002 and 2004, also featured hexagrams cut into their skin with a knife, it is reported….
Authorities are investigating the Satanic links of two more murders, a woman who was the girlfriend of the suspect until she disappeared, and a 14 year old boy…..

Twisted cult believe smearing blood of sacrificed animals can save lives and used it to pledge souls to Satan

13 March 2015
Horrified tourists have told of their shock and disgust after attending a devil-worshipping ‘Black Mass’ in Mexico.
They looked on as chicken and goats were sacrificed before their fresh blood was poured over participants who had pledged their souls to Satan.
At the twisted cult’s annual ‘Black Mass’ in the Mexican state of Veracruz, people from across the world to seek change in their lives by taking part in devil worship.
Worshippers indulge in brutal animal sacrifice, dance before burning pentagrams and disappear into a subterranean cave where solemn oaths are sworn before a large statue of the devil and a committee of shamans….
In total, eight animals were sacrificed during the ritual.
Following the sacrifices, the shamans stood before a large burning pentagram and attempted to summon the devil through their chants, before descending with the new adherents of the black mass to an underground cave decorated with inverted crosses, animal carcasses and a large statue of Satan with an erect penis.
The eight shamans gathered round each individual penitent and swore oaths to the effect that their soul now belonged to Satan, and that if their promises to the devil were not upheld then their spirit would be forfeit.
The committee of shamans screamed ‘Hail Lucifer!’ following each new oath and prostrated themselves before the statue, over which the remaining blood from the sacrificial offerings had been poured….
Evidence mounts in Britain’s child abuse cover-up investigation
A dam of official silence around child abuse in Britain began to break after the 2011 death of entertainer Jimmy Savile.
By Jill Lawless, Associated Press March 17, 2015
London — A toxic mix of misuse of power and official silence has become Britain’s shame as the country faces up to a growing web of evidence that the abuse of vulnerable children by powerful men was covered up for decades.
Several lawmakers said Tuesday that former detectives and intelligence officers should be guaranteed protection from prosecution if they speak out about child abuse by senior police, politicians, and other prominent people.
On Monday, the BBC’s “Newsnight” program reported that an ex-detective had told it that a lawmaker, Cyril Smith, was arrested in the early 1980s as part of an investigation into child-sex parties, but was released hours later.
He said officers were ordered to hand over notebooks and video footage from their undercover operation, and were told they would be violating the Official Secrets Act if they revealed what had happened.
The BBC did not identify the former detective because of the legal threat hanging over him.
After Smith died in 2010, prosecutors revealed that in 1970 eight men had accused the Liberal lawmaker of abusing them as teens. The prosecutors said Smith was never charged, but should have been….
Australian Archbishop Charged With Concealing Child Abuse
CANBERRA, Australia — Mar 17, 2015, 2:29 AM ET
By ROD McGUIRK Associated Press
A Roman Catholic archbishop in Australia was charged Tuesday with covering up for a pedophile priest during the 1970s.
Archbishop of Adelaide Philip Wilson said he was disappointed that New South Wales state police had decided to charge him with concealing a serious child sexual abuse offence. Wilson said he would fight the charge, which carries a potential two-year prison sentence.
The charge alleges the 64-year-old failed to report child sex abuse carried out by priest James Fletcher during the 1970s when they both served in the town of Maitland, north of Sydney.
Fletcher died in prison aged 65 in 2006, a year into an almost eight-year sentence for raping an altar boy between 1989 and 1991.
“The suggestion appears to be that I failed to bring to the attention of police a conversation I am alleged to have had in 1976, when I was a junior priest, that a now deceased priest had abused a child,” Wilson said in a statement.
“From the time this was first brought to my attention last year, I have completely denied the allegation,” he said….

Agents graphically describe abuse
By Don Ellzey 11/30/07
In an interview with Bernard at the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office Substation on June 10, 2005….She said Bernard described the rituals at the church, although the rituals were not the point of the FBI investigation. Freitas said he volunteered the information. According to Bernard, the rituals took place in what was called “the room,” which was the church’s youth room. He described how six adults would line up shoulder to shoulder and perform sex acts on his daughter or other children, who were passed down the line. The rule was that there would be no penetration or injury.
The rituals had a Satanic theme, including a Pentagram, the use of animals and animal parts such as chicken feet and the use of animal blood. Freitas said that according to Bernard, Patricia Pierson and Robin Lamonica, two defendants in the case, put animal blood on his daughter during one of the rites. She said Bernard claimed Pierson and Lamonica also sexually abused his daughter. He said animal blood was also put on other children, Freitas said….Using a special chemical, a search team found signs of body fluids all over the carpet, she said. Pieces of the carpet with fluid spots were cut out for evidence. http://www.hammondstar.com/articles/2007/12/03/top_stories/9453.txt
Satanist paedophile ring ‘ritually raped up to 25 children’
By Tom Leonard in Ponchatoula 6/3/05
“In a case that has horrified Americans way beyond the Bible Belt, Louis Lamonica Jnr and eight members the Hosanna Church are accused of being members of a Satanic paedophile ring who ritually raped up to 25 children, as well as performing animal sacrifices.
Police say some of those charged – who include Lamonica’s wife and a deputy sheriff – have already admitted devil worship inside the now defunct church on the outskirts of Ponchatoula, the parish’s main town.
The discovery of badly rubbed-out pentagrams on the floor and eight boxes of hooded black costumes – allegedly used both in the abuse and in “morality tales” performed to prepare the young victims – bear out some of the claims.”
The Devil’s Handiwork? A church laid waste by its pastor’s bizarre behavior.
By Sarah Childress – Newsweek June 6 issue
Louis Lamonica walked into the sheriff’s department in tiny Livingston, La., a few weeks ago and asked to speak with a detective. According to police, for almost the next two hours the middle-aged preacher, dressed casually in a green polo shirt and green slacks, proceeded to tell a story so sickening they could scarcely believe what they were hearing. He explained that he was the former pastor of Hosanna Church, a now defunct house of worship in nearby Ponchatoula.
Matter-of-factly and without remorse, Lamonica said that he and other church members had molested children, and taught them to have sex with each other, as well as with a dog. He told the detectives that he drank cat blood, and poured it on the bodies of his young victims, according to Ponchatoula Police Chief David Vitter….
After Lamonica’s confession, authorities arrested eight other members of the Hosanna Church congregation, including Lamonica’s wife, Robbin, and a Tangipahoa Parish sheriff’s deputy. Police say that church members abused as many as two dozen children, one only a year old, beginning in 1999, in rituals that they say may be tied to devil worship. http://www.religionnewsblog.com/11315/the-devils-handiwork
[Hosanna Church] Witnesses speak of cult-like activities at Hosanna
The Daily Star, USA 5/25/05 Aimee Yee http://www.hammondstar. com
People dressed in black clothing stood inside pentagrams and performed blood rituals at the Hosanna Church, according to information coming from an investigation by the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office. The nine suspects now in custody are believed to have been involved in the ritualistic practice of molesting and raping children from 1999 to 2003, when the church disbanded. Since the story broke on May 17, details of the abuse believed to have taken place at the church has become more explicit and graphic.
“The sheriff said there were cult-like activities involved,” Covington said. “Some witnesses said the blood rituals took place inside pentagrams there at the church.”
The pentagrams have been cleaned away, likely by the suspects involved, Covington said, who used solvents and are now reporting to police exactly where the five-pointed stars, usually made with alternate points connected by a continuous line and used as a magic symbol, were located.
Victims have said the suspects wore black clothing while the rituals took place…. http://www.religionnewsblog.com/11276/Witnesses-speak-of-cult-like-activities-at-Hosanna
7 Members of Louisiana Church Charged With Abuse of Children By Ariel Hart 5/20/05 The pastor of a Louisiana church and six of its members, including the pastor’s wife and a sheriff’s deputy, have been arrested in what the police described as a cult-like sex ring that abused children and animals.

Living with demons Former Augusta man faces murder charges By Betty Adams Staff Writer September 18, 2011
AUGUSTA — A prosecutor recommended in 1999 that 20-year-old Roy Gutfinski Jr. be kept behind bars for as long as possible.
Deputy District Attorney Alan Kelley baldly stated Gutfinski, on trial in a bizarre assault case, would continue to be a problem — both for himself and for society.
“Quite simply, the only guarantee of safety is adult incarceration,” Kelley wrote as a judge was poised to sentence Gutfinski in a ritual blood-letting case that left a 16-year-old girl scarred for life.
Kelley’s words were prophetic.
Gutfinski was convicted of elevated aggravated assault and served 7 1/2 years of the 10-year sentence — one of his various periods in Maine and Massachusetts jails.
This week, now living under the name of Caius Domitius Veiovis after a legal name change in 2008, he pleaded not guilty in a Massachusetts court to three counts each of murder, kidnapping and intimidation of witnesses. The former Augusta man now faces the possibility of three life sentences without parole.
Veiovis, 31, and two others are accused of killing three men on or about Aug. 28 in Pittsfield, Mass., allegedly to prevent one of them from testifying.
A look at Veiovis’ history — largely through Maine court documents and previously published stories — offers a picture of an increasingly self-loathing person who lapsed into recreational drug use, cultivated a fascination with knives and adopted demon worship to repel people….
A neuropsychologist who evaluated him said teachers noted a preocccupation with devil worship and resistance to authority. Another counselor said the boy “exhibited very dangerous and threatening behavior” and didn’t want to change….
Then, in August 1999, he watched in his darkened downtown Augusta apartment as his 17-year-old girlfriend took a razor and sliced a 16-year-old girl in the small of her back.
The wound required 32 stitches to close.
Gutfinski and his girlfriend then licked the blood and kissed.
He told police he was a vampire, but one who was without fangs and able to go about in daylight.
At that 2000 sentencing hearing, Roy C. Gutfinski Sr. told the judge his son was a very active child who was later diagnosed as hyperactive, and hospitalized for drug problems….
After the 2000 conviction, Gutfinski began altering his appearance, with small horns that appear as bumps implanted in his forehead, filing his teeth, reshaping his earlobes and gathering tattoos.
He also had small horns implanted in his septum. However, those long, tooth-like horns in his nose are absent in photos of his recent court appearance in Massachusetts.
A tattooed “666” on his forehead showed prominently….

SPRINGFIELD — Adam Lee Hall hung his head after hearing the jury’s verdict of guilty on charges of first-degree murder….
Hall, with David Chalue, 46, of North Adams, and Caius Veiovis, 32, of Pittsfield, allegedly kidnapped, tortured and then shot David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell in August 2011 and buried the bodies in Becket, according to testimony.
Chalue and Veiovis remain in jail without bail; their trials are to begin in the coming months….
