Satanic ritual accused back in court

2012-05-14 11:13

Johannesburg - Three men and a minor accused of killing a teenager in an apparent satanic ritual are expected in the South Gauteng High Court on Monday.

Lindon Wagner, 21, Robin Harwood, 18, and Harvey Isha, 23, remain in custody since their bail application was denied in November last year.

A 15-year-old girl, also implicated in the killing of Kirsty Theologo, 18, was previously released into the custody of her parents.

In October last year, Theologo was doused with petrol and set alight on a koppie behind the Linmeyer swimming pool in Julius Street, Johannesburg.

She died a week later in the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital.

Lester Moody and Jeremy King, both 18, entered into a plea deal with the State in an attempt to get lighter sentences.

On March 29, they were sentenced to 17 years' imprisonment each, with five years suspended. In return, they are expected to testify against the other accused.

    How do two 18 year old boys and a 15 year old girl bring themselves to do this to someone? :/

      No reason on earth would be good enough to become a satan worshipper. They will get what they deserve in the after life. As for you Victor, I pity you if you understand his motives for being a satanist. May God have mercy on your Soul.

      Bless Boswell - 2012-05-14 12:27

      Tell us why Victor. Is he demonic or evil?

      John - 2012-05-14 12:58

      I think I know what Victor mean.... So why ask what he meant?

      Haralumbose - 2012-05-14 13:04

      other people are easily influeced

      CaptainGaza - 2012-05-14 13:23

      Oh Johnny, get off your soap box mate. Victor just said he understood his motives, he did not say he condoned their actions. You guys are so quick to damn people to hell, you show real christian values here.

      Johnny - 2012-05-14 14:06

      Leave my soap box where it is. MY POINT OF VIEW is just I can not see any reason for a normal human to follow a force that bring destruction and hate. And for those who find comfort in satan, my prayers are with them.

    Satan has destructive power. Directly opposite to that of God's.

      rbphiri - 2012-05-14 12:51

      I guess the people giving you thumbs down would'nt mind their kids being set alight. Or you also don't mind a tanning bed in hell.

      Schmee - 2012-05-14 14:45

      Or they just don't believe in Satan and God? Maybe they realise that it's a deluded choice that these kids made because they could.

  • Deana - 2012-05-14 11:56

    Setting someone on fire is absolutely sick! Hope they burn in hell with the devil they worship.

      mahloborakgoale - 2012-05-14 13:58

      Maybe a prolonged prison sentence will give them a chance to repent. They need prayers , not condemnation.

      Deana - 2012-05-14 15:19

      @malaborokgale- you're a good Christian! I applaud you for you're spirit of forgiveness.

  • Saffa in Asia - 2012-05-14 12:01

    'Setting someone on fire is absolutely sick! Hope they burn in hell with the devil they worship.' Oh but our atheist friends, zaathiest etc will tell us that satan doesn't exist. Shows you how deluded they are.

      Tamaranui - 2012-05-14 12:27

      So these crooked Kids are an Indication that the Devil exist.................So whom exactly is the Delusional one???

      WarrenStylin - 2012-05-14 13:05

      Ok, so them getting burn is an example that Satan exists, where was god to prevent it? Isn't prevention better than cure?

      CaptainGaza - 2012-05-14 13:30

      Saffa, satan was not responsible for this. These people were fully aware of the outcome their actions would make. To blame it on a fictional character is a cop-out and load of turd. Now who's the delusional one here, might as well blame a pissed off tooth fairy, same diffs.

      Schmee - 2012-05-14 14:39

      Do you call yourself a Christian? I thought that the bible teaches you not to wish bad things onto people tsk tsk tsk

      Deana - 2012-05-14 15:26

      Saffa in Asia didn't initially post 'Setting someone on fire is sick! Hope they burn in hell with the devil they worship'. I did. Don't question her Christianity. I am a Christian, faulty to say the least, but after losing my dad in a fire deliberately set in Iraq, I do wish the evil bastards burn with their devil as this WAS a satanic ritual. My the Lord forgive me- but I feel strongly about it.

      Schmee - 2012-05-14 20:46

      Well maybe Deana, you should go back to your scriptures because as an atheist who has also experienced horrible things I still do not wish horrible things onto others.

  • angela.monaghansandells - 2012-05-14 12:04

    No devil made them do this! They are responsible for their own actions and all of them should get the harshest punishment available.

  • Tamaranui - 2012-05-14 12:24

    Savages ............ They must all PAY. This is what happens when you teach the kids Fairytales.

  • rbphiri - 2012-05-14 12:49

    They want to be satanic, so let's make their lives a living hell with a lengthy prison sentence.

      Thabiso - 2012-05-14 13:44

      I agree with you 100% Ronald, how wud they feel if I burnt them then claim its a ritual and again what type of a god allows people to be killed @ his expense there's something wrong with this religion

      John - 2012-05-14 14:08

      Yes Thabiso, it is called the satanic religion.

  • CaptainGaza - 2012-05-14 13:15

    Let me ask this, if there was no religous mumbojumbo involved here, would this act still have taken place?

  • Lauden Kirk - 2012-05-14 13:22

    Satan is only interested in taking you down a dark lonely selfish road. God made us in his image. Satan is empty and lonely the absent of love

  • Lauden Kirk - 2012-05-14 13:24

    Satan will give you everything you ever wanted and more. God gives you purpose of life the willing of life. It's not what you can selfishly control it's what experience we have in this amazing world

  • mahloborakgoale - 2012-05-14 13:53

    It is a spiritual warfare like the bible says in Ephesians 6 : 12 . We just need to pray for these children and the many others that are involved in such practices. You can't always blame the parents, some of these things are learnt at school from their peer groups

  • Mfanafuthi - 2012-05-14 14:13

    Blame it on the ANC gorvement, since they taking the blame for everything that goes wrong.

  • Schmee - 2012-05-14 14:47

    So the Lotter kids did it because they believed it was Gods will. These kids did it because they thought it was Satans will. Guess it fits in well with our blame culture.
