There’s nothing like accusing someone of practising witchcraft and using the argument to kill them. You’d think we’d moved on from the middle ages, but it’s not quite the case. This 56 year old woman from Mexico is a recent victim of such accusation. The woman was a Tarot reader and the villagers feared that her practise could bring upon them the wrath of God. She was also accused of stealing a TV.
Five of the woman’s neighbors – three men and two women kidnapped the alleged witch and drowned her in the well face down, ass up. Given that she was 56, I’m pretty sure she’d been reading Tarot for some time so why point a witch finger at her now? Clearly, somebody had an unrelated beef with her and brainwashed neighbors with the witchcraft talk to have her killed.
All five perpetrators have been apprehended and are in detention.
