Brake fluid used as anaesthetic

2013-05-03 00:00

THEY gave the girls brake fluid because they had done it to other girls before and knew it would make them light-headed and possibly unconscious.

This was how Jeremy King (19) yesterday explained why Lester Moody (19) and Lindon Wagner (23) decided to spike the drinks of Kirsty Theologo (18) with brake fluid before sacrificing her. King and Moody were last year sentenced to 17 years in jail, of which five were suspended, for their part in the satanic murder of Theologo. In terms of a plea agreement, both must testify against Wagner, Courtney Daniels (18), Robin Harwood (19) and Harvey Isha (24). The four were also charged with the murder of Theologo, as well as the attempted murder of Bronwyn Grammar (then 14 and now 16).

King yesterday testified the plan to sacrifice Theologo was made after Wagner had a dream he could sell his soul to the devil, and then his Bible fell open on Revelations 17:16, which in the King James version reads how the ten horns of the beast “shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire”.

They played a game in which Theologo’s name came up. She was aware that she was chosen as the prostitute, King told the court. They drank vodka and ginger ale on a hill in Rossettenville.

“It was in the third round that Courtney held two glasses aside and filled it with brake fluid, which we gave to Kirsty and Bronwyn,” he testified. He said he and Wagner later strangled the girls and tied their hands before placing them in a pentagram with a Bible in the centre. Then Harvey called that Kirsty was awake, which caused Linden to panic and pour petrol over her before setting her alight. He then did the same to Bronwyn. “Then we all ran away,” King said.

A badly burnt Theologo carried Grammar to her nearby home over her shoulder. She died a week later while Grammar was hospitalised for weeks. The case continues in the Palm Ridge high court in Alberton.
