There are some projects you shouldn’t try to do yourself. Say things like exorcising demons from your child:
They were arrested Tuesday after Rusk County Sheriff’s deputies responding to a 911 call found 13-month-old Amora Bain Carson beaten. Investigators think the couple used a hammer to “beat the demons out” of Amora, Carson’s daughter.
Lt. Reynold Humber said that the couple told detectives various stories on how the child was injured, including that the toddler was in an auto accident and attacked by the family’s dogs. They even said that the child beat herself in the head with a hammer.
“They had multiple stories they went through before they told us they had beaten the child to death,” he told The Tyler Morning Telegraph for its Wednesday editions.
Humber said the couple eventually told deputies the child was possessed and they were trying to rid her of demons.
An arrest affidavit says that after the child was dead, the couple “drove to Henderson to pawn some items to pay for an exorcism.”
It shows the extent of their delusions that they thought that hiring someone to do a “proper” exorcism might in some way help after the child was already dead.
