Woman Killed As Satanic Sacrifice

At this point, there doesn’t appear to be any organized cultic activity in this case from Greece, but it’s still a disturbing story:

Alexandros Papageorgiou, suspect

Greek police have arrested an Athens man accused of brutally killing a woman in a satanic ritual on Orthodox Easter Sunday.

The suspect, identified by local media as Alexandros Papageorgiou, 22, confessed to murdering a 41-year-old homeless woman in a pre-dawn attack, as she lay in a square in the Athens seaside suburb of Glyfada, police said.

Papageorgiou told detectives he hit his victim with a heavy stone and then cut his arm to daub on a bench the number 666 and the symbol of an upside-down cross in blood.

He said he believed the sacrifice would get him closer to Satan.

Sky News adds this detail:

Described as “deeply disturbed” and a drug addict by his father, he is alleged to have bludgeoned his victim to death, using a heavy stone which he picked up from a park in a southern suburb of Athens.

“I slit my hand with a knife and as blood oozed out I looked around and she was the first person I saw,” he said in his confession, leaked to local media Wednesday. “It could have been anyone.”

DNA analysis and a fingerprint on a plastic bag containing the murder weapon which police found in a nearby bin led authorities to track the suspect who publicised his activities through social media.

The suspect embraced Satanism at age 13.
