Some tourists in Veracruz, Mexico got more than they bargained for when they attended an annual Black Mass held by a reputed Satanic cult, according to the Daily Mail. Granted, one would think things are going to get weird in hurry when signing up for something like this, but First World tourists sometimes operate under some strange, naive assumptions.

This is why you should never look in Grandpa’s shed. The Denver Post reports:
Lakewood police are investigating what they suspect are human and animal remains believed to have been used for occult worship.
Officers were called on Oct. 17 to the 1200 block of Kline Street where a cleaning crew hired made the discovery, said Steve Davis, Lakewood police spokesman. The bones were found in a shed, along with candles, bottles, chains and a crucifix.
The former owner of the home left the country in 1998 and has since died, police said. Investigators talked to people who knew the man, including at least one family member, who indicted he was an occultist, Davis said.
“It’s all very strange,” Davis said.
The items in question in the shed were extremely soiled, covered in multiple layers of dust and appeared to have been undisturbed for more than 15 years.
Beware the purple cloth. Fox News reports:
The disappearances of nearly 40 dogs from southern Idaho is baffling authorities and raising concerns after dogs were found dead under mysterious circumstances, with one found with its head crushed in a suspected ritual killing.
Nearly 40 dogs have been reported missing since November in an agricultural region in south-central Idaho known as the Magic Valley. “The dogs seem to vanish into thin air,” said animal shelter director Debbie Blackwood.
Authorities grew even more concerned after a German shepherd was found apparently stoned to death earlier this month. Blackwood says the dog appeared to have suffered a “ritualistic execution,” in which its head was crushed with rock and its carcass covered with a purple cloth.
