Satanic sect thought to be behind murder of Colombian family on 6/6/06

.- Authorities believe a satanic group may be behind the murder of six members of a Colombian family in the town of Barrancabermeja over superstitions surrounding the date 6/6/06.

According to media reports, one of the suspects is a member of the same family and belongs to a group that engages in occult practices.  When police arrived at the gruesome crime scene, they found 27 year-old Javier Parra, a nephew and cousin of the victims, sitting before an image of Satan a few feet away from the bodies.

The six victims ranging in age from 17 to 54 were found with their throats slit.  Six knives were found at the scene, which was dotted with bloody tennis shoe footprints.  Authorities believe Parra let the other members of the satanic cult into the house.  Some reports claimed Parra had already confessed to being involved in the murders.

Bishop Jaime Prieto Amaya of Barrancabermeja called on authorities to work to prevent superstitious beliefs from posing a danger to the public.
