Folk religion with deadly rituals raises safety concerns for law enforcement
Santa Muerte is becoming a prominent source of faith among drug traffickers and violent criminals, which is why many narcotics officers feel the public and law enforcement alike should beware.

Santa Muerte, which translates to “Holy Death” and “Saint Death” is among those folk religions growing in popularity in Central Texas that has law enforcement warning the public.

The folk saint’s image is that of a robed skeleton, carrying a scythe and either a globe or scales.

Santa Muerte is a dark, mysterious folk saint in Latin American cultures, and gained popularity in the late 1980s and early 1990s….

Santa Muerte is becoming a prominent source of faith among drug traffickers and violent criminals, which is why many narcotics officers feel the public and law enforcement alike should beware….

“They believe that the more sacrifice, the more gorier [sic] or intense the sacrifice – the better off they’ll be with the Santa Muerte,” said the undercover officer.

The Mexican government reports La Familia/Knights Templar has sacrificed humans in their rituals.

In 2008, Gulf Cartel members kidnapped rival Sinaloa Cartel members in Nuevo Laredo, less than five hours away from Austin, Texas.  The Gulf Cartel took the Sinaloa members to public Santa Muerte shrines and executed the captors.  The FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin released in 2014 suggests it was an offering to Santa Muerte.

In July 2011, near El Paso, Texas, in the city of Juarez, Mexican police found remains dressed as a bride at a Santa Muerte alter. The house in which that alter was placed was used to hold kidnapping victims. The alter contained two other skulls and cigarette packs as offerings. Police still do not know the circumstances surrounding the remains.

Dr. Bunker warns, “For U.S. law enforcement agencies, the rise of a criminalized and dark variant of Santa Muerte worship holds many negative implications. Of greatest concern, the inspired and ritualistic killings associated with this cult could cross the border and take place in the United States.”

It has, according to these government reports.  Three confirmed deaths in the United States involve sacrifices to Santa Muerte….

Knights Templar originate from the mountains in Michoacan. The cartel is known for its gruesome ritualistic killings….

“…an altar containing blood, bones, burned plastic police figurines, and black statuettes and candles will determine different worshiper intent than one containing a rainbow statuette, blue and bone candles, and offerings of various types of fruit,” he said…..

Mom Gouged Son’s Eyes Out In Drug-Fueled Ritual, Mexico Authorities Say
By MARK STEVENSON 05/24/12

MEXICO CITY — Police in a Mexico City suburb arrested a mother and several relatives Thursday for allegedly gouging out the eyes of her 5-year-old son in what authorities said appeared to have been a drug-fueled ritual….

Mexico state prosecutor Isaac Acevedo told local media that a total of eight people had been detained and that investigators believed the mother herself gouged the boy’s eyes out with her fingers. The boy’s father was apparently not in the home at the time.

The crime appeared to have been part of a ritual, but was not apparently related to the Santa Muerte or Saint Death cult, some of whose followers were recently charged with the sacrificial killings of two 10-year-old boys and a 55-year-old woman in northern Sonora state, he said….

While statues of Saint Death are common in many poor Mexican neighborhoods, Chavez said no altar or statue of the figure was found in the Nezahualcoyotl home.

Mexico’s worst case of ritual sacrifice came with the notorious “narco-satanicos” killings of the 1980s. Fifteen bodies, many of them with signs of ritual sacrifice, were unearthed at a ranch outside the border city of Matamoros, across from Brownsville, Texas.

Josh Powell Friend Says He Bragged of Knowing How to Dump a Body
By Katie Kindelan Apr 5, 2012

The friend to whom Josh Powell once bragged that he knew “how to kill someone, dispose of a body and not get caught,” according to recently revealed court documents, said it was “scary that I even had that conversation with him.”

Powell boasted at a 2008 Christmas party he attended with now-missing wife Susan that he knew how to commit the perfect crime, thanks to his obsession with television crime shows, the friend told ABC-affiliate KTVX in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The TV report did not name the friend but ABC News has identified him as Scott Hardman.

“He was basically telling me about how the best way to dispose of a body would be down a mineshaft like a vertical one,” Hardman said in the KTVX interview. “It would be the best way of disposing one because they’re so unstable.”

Josh Powell Bragged About Committing Perfect Crime, Friend Says
04/5/2012 David Lohr
In another startling development, the man who alleged to police that Josh Powell bragged he “could kill someone … and not get caught” has taken his story to ABC-affiliate KTVX in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The media outlet did not name the man but ABC News has identified him as Scott Hardman.

Speaking with KTVX, Hardman said the conversation took place at a 2008 Christmas party, roughly a year before the disappearance of Powell’s wife, Susan Cox Powell.

“He was basically telling me about how the best way to dispose of a body would be down a mineshaft like a vertical one,” Hardman said in the KTVX interview. “It would be the best way of disposing one because they’re so unstable.”

Hardman said Powell was obsessed with television crime shows and credited them with teaching him how to get away with murder….

Hardman’s tip prompted police to search dozens of abandoned mines outside of Ely, Nev., but they found no evidence that Susan Powell’s body had been disposed of in a shaft.

Mexico Santa Muerte Murders: Nacozari ‘Death Saint’ Cult Sacrifices Lead Police To Investigate Family By FELIPE LARIOS and ADRIANA GOMEZ LICON 04/1/12

NACOZARI, Mexico – It was a family people took pity on, one the government and church helped with free food, used clothes, and farm animals. The men were known as trash pickers. Some of the women were suspected of prostitution.

Mexican prosecutors are investigating the poor family living in shacks outside a small town near the U.S. border as alleged members of a cult that sacrificed two 10-year-old boys and a 55-year-old woman to Santa Muerte, or Saint Death, a figure adored mostly by outlaws but whose popularity is growing across Mexico and among Hispanics in the United States….

Before last week, there have only been unconfirmed reports of human sacrifices related to the figure in Mexico in recent years, said R. Andrew Chesnut, chairman of Catholic studies at Virginia Commonwealth University and author of the book “Devoted to Death: Santa Muerte, the Skeleton Saint.”

Chesnut said the 2007 shooting deaths of three men appeared to be related to Santa Muerte because the bodies were abandoned at a shrine to the figure outside the border city of Nuevo Laredo. But they showed no signs of being sacrificial killings.

He said that although most Santa Muerte devotees consider killing a “Satanic aberration of devotion,” and that books about the Santa Muerte don’t mention human sacrifice, some followers are extreme.

“With no clerical authority to stop them, some practitioners engage in aberrant and even abhorrent rituals,” Chesnut said.

Vanessa Williams In ‘You Have No Idea’: ‘I Was Molested’ 04/5/2012
When it comes to Vanessa Williams, “You Have No Idea.” The 49-year-old’s new memoir, which carries the mysterious title, reveals within the pages that as a child, she was molested by a woman.

The incident occurred when Williams was just 10 years old, making it hard for the young girl to comprehend just what was happening to her. In the latest issue of People magazine, on stands now, Williams details an incident in which an 18-year-old girl, Susan, a friend of a family friend whom the actress described as the “epitome of cool,” inappropriately touched her….
Susan told Williams, “Don’t tell anyone” — and she didn’t.

Williams kept her molestation a secret for years, not knowing how to comprehend the events that transpired that night in California.

“I didn’t really understand until college,” Williams said of the moment she finally realized what had happened to her. “I was with my boyfriend and it hit me and I blurted out: ‘Oh my god — I was molested.'”

Williams’ startling revelation led her to “become a bit more rebellious.” The beauty admits that she smoked marijuana in high school and had an abortion her senior year.
