Three people—a man, his wife, and the man's mistress—went on trial in Brazil yesterday after they were arrested in 2012 for allegedly killing women and then baking them into pastries they would eat and sell to neighbors.
The three would apparently use the remains of the people they murdered and bake their flesh into "thick" empanadas they would consume. A five-year-old girl that reportedly lived with them also ate the baked goods.
The details of the 2008 murder, as well as other crimes, are spelled out in vivid detail in Revelations of a Schizophrenic, the self-published 34-chapter manuscript which Negromonte wrote, illustrated, and had printed up. He then made a point of registering the title with a local notary public on March 28.
“Looking at the lifeless body of the evil adolescent, I feel relief. I take a razor blade and begin to remove the skin and then share it,” he wrote.
Prior to each killing, “arrows came into my head, images, millions of images,” compelling him “to deliver these people to God,” he told a reporter for a local broadcaster, TV Jornal Caruaru. The victims, all women, were selected, he claimed, according to some eccentric numerology, whereby anyone carrying personal ID bearing a combination of “bad numbers,” such as 66 or 666, was deemed “evil” and in need of “cleansing.”
Negromonte said he acted on instructions from two supernatural beings--not demons but “a cherubim and an archangel,” one white and one black, who instructed him to carry out a “mission of mercy,” killing to purify what he claimed were tainted souls.
It's stories like that reinforce my hangup about eating food from potlucks and the like!
