A mom of five children told police in Brockton she stabbed her two young sons to death as part of a voodoo ritual, telling them the “ritual needed blood.”
A Brockton woman used a kitchen knife to stab two of her children to death and later told police it was part of a Voodoo ritual, authorities said Tuesday.
Latarsha Sanders, 43, told police she attacked her 8-year-old son, Edson “Marlon” Brito, with a kitchen knife as part of a ritual but failed, so she attacked her 5-year-old son, Lason Brito, Assistant Plymouth District Attorney Jessica Kenny told a judge during Sanders’ arraignment on murder charges.
She told police it had to do with “Voodoo stuff,” according to a police report of their interview with her.
The older boy was stabbed 50 times, and she admitted to the killings, Kenny said.
“She said she had stabbed him because she had ‘failed’ in the ritual with Marlon,” Kenny said, according to The Boston Herald. “She responded to police that she felt bad about what she had done.”
…Voodoo refers to religious practices developed centuries ago by enslaved Africans in the Caribbean, primarily in Haiti, where the practices are sometimes spelled “vodou.”
Two Massachusetts women are facing multiple charges after they allegedly tied down and burned a 5-year-old girl in a voodoo ritual.
The girl, whose name has not been released, is permanently disfigured as a result of a ritual that was meant to “rid her of a demon that was making her misbehave,” the Brockton Enterprise reported.
The two East Bridgewater women, identified as Peggy LaBossiere, 51, and Rachel Hilaire, 40, allegedly blew fire over the young girl’s face and cut her arm and collar area with a needlelike object, drawing blood, the girl’s 8-year-old brother told police. The women, who are sisters, according to the Brockton Enterprise, also allegedly poured a substance over the girl’s eyes which caused them to sting.
Additionally, the women allegedly threatened to cut off the young brother’s head with a machete.
When leftists said we’d be blessed with “cultural enrichment” once we opened our borders, I wonder if this is what they had in mind?
