Three siblings in northern Peru allegedly gouged out their mother’s eyes, disemboweled her and bathed in her blood as a sacrifice to Satan in return for healing.
Police found the body of 75-year-old Teodora Quispe Ccayllahua in her home in the mountain village of Andabamba, sans her head and intestines. They later arrested Ccayllahua’s three daughters, Aurelia Quispe, 38, Percy Quispe, 41 and Marcelina Suane, 46, the youngest of whom declared they had been ordered to kill their mother by “the master of darkness.” (RELATED: 21 Ancient Human Skulls Stolen From English Church Crypt)
“The Master of Darkness ordered me, the king of demons is already with us, we are more and every day we will become bigger,” police claim Aurelia said upon being arrested, according to the Daily Mail.
The authorities assert the siblings conspired to kill their mother Saturday. They subsequently gouged out her eyes, decapitated her, and used a knife to cut out some of her internal organs, including her intestines. The trio disposed of their mother’s internal organs in a nearby pond and then, according to police, bathed in her blood to “invoke the devil.”
Aurelia, whom authorities described as the ringleader of the group, allegedly said she had been instructed to sacrifice a loved one to Satan as part of a healing ritual in “a strange dream, in which I heard I had been chosen. Then a small frog appeared at my door,” according to The Sun.
Locals in the village claim Satanic groups have been gaining followers in the rural areas of the Santa Cruz province and they often urge their practitioners to perform dark and harmful rituals.
Police recovered Teodora’s eyes and internal organs and sent those along with her body for an official autopsy. They charged the three siblings with qualified homicide which, if they are convicted, carries a potential sentence of life in prison.
