2 Boys, 1 Woman Killed as Human Sacrifices to ‘Saint Death’ in Mexico 


Eight people have been arrested in for allegedly killing two boys and one woman as human sacrifices for La Santa Muerte — the saint of death — in Northern Mexico, authorities said.

The boys, both 10, and woman, 55, were killed and their blood poured around an altar to the saint in a cult ritual, Jose Larrinaga, spokesman for Sonora state prosecutors told the Associated Press.

According to the AP, there had previously been no confirmed cases of human sacrifices to the saint in Mexico. “Saint Death,” depicted as a skeleton dressed in a long robe and carrying a scythe, has in recent years become a favorite among criminals and drug traffickers in Mexico, though is not recognized by the Roman Catholic Church.
