Witch Doctor Kills Four Children

Witch Doctor Kills Four Children Four children all from the same family were beaten to death in Haiti by a witch doctor whom promised to cure them of an illness. According to Wilfrid Brisson, an official from Marbial, Haiti, "Three girls and a boy, the eldest of whom was seven years old and the youngest only 15 months, suffered abuse from the healer who was treating them." The witch doctor had told the mother that the children were possessed by demons and that he could rid them of these fiends. He beat them, claiming that this would help cast out the demons. Consequently, the blows killed all four of the children. This story just proves that some people still have primitive mind-sets allowing them to kill to expel nonexistent entities, even though modern medicine has proved that demons don't cause illness.

Haiti is pretty off the hook with the magick. I'm surprised this made it into the media,as I would bet it happens quite often

Yeah, I heard one story on the show Dark Matters: Twisted but True about zombies in Haiti. It is pretty voodoo over there.
