  Adolfo  Constanzo, above,  practitioner of  Palo Mayombe black
  witchcraft, mass murder and magic,  whose cult killed at least
  fifteen  people in  Mexico,  including  Mark Killroy,  a Texas
  University student spending spring break in the border town of
  Matamoros, Mexico.  The discovery of his mutilated body, along
  with the ritualistic trappings and  trademarks of  Constanzo's
  sickening craft, began the investigation  which would  uncover
  a trail of buried secrets so bloody and grotesque as to  shock
  even the purblind pagan press into standing up to take note of
  the hideous horrors of satanism.

  Constanzo's cult was fairly well  organized and influential,
  though  not enough so to avoid detection; there were over 30
  regular participants, including businessmen, actors, cocaine
  smugglers, and  Mexico's  equivalent of the FBI director  of
  the United States,  who'd also been the director of Mexico's
  branch of Interpol, where he aquired etensive  CIA contacts.
  Using information gathered from  contacts within the Mexican
  intelligence community, Constanzo would dupe his clients and
  prospective recruits into thinking he possesed  supernatural
  insight into their past, future, and present.

  According  to  auther  Ed  Humes,  Palo Mayombe witchery was
  brought to the U.S. mostly by Cubans who fled Fidel Castro's
  regime in the 1950's--Constanzo's mother, who taught her son
  the craft, ranked among them.  In  Miami  alone,  there  are
  twenty  thousand santero and palero priests, making Miami "a
  center  for  twentieth-century  witchcraft,"  according   to
  Humes, page 64.  Amongst the  practitioners of Palo Mayombe,
  it's rumoured that  Fidel  Castro is a  Santeria  priest. In
  any case, it's clear that black witchcraft is  real, deadly,
  organized, fairly widespread, intergenerational, and satanic
  in nature;  while these facts may not be clear after reading
  Harry Potter book,  the following quotes from Ed Hume's book
  might provide some clarification:

       "If  you  accept  the devil instead of God, if you
       give me your soul, I can help you," Constanzo told
       Francisco. --"Buried Secrets," Ed Humes, page 97

       "Bring me someone I can use," the  priest of black
       magic  commanded  his  flock.   Someone  who  will
       scream.  --"Buried Secrets,"  Edward Humes,  First
       Signet Printing,  1992,  page  3

       "Do  this  and  your fear will go away," Constanzo
       prodded. "He's a Christian.  He's  an  animal.  Do
       it!" --"Buried Secrets," Humes, page 259

       "Calmly, then,  Duby  seized  Constanzo's  jeweled
       ceremonial daggar, an Aztec relic  stolen  from  a
       Museum in Mexico City. Then Duby cut Mark Kilroy's
       heart out. "My soul is dead," he said, holding  up
       his  prize.  "I  am  not a human being." --"Buried
       Secrets," Humes, page 259

       "In additiion to black magic,  his padrino had in-
       itiated him into  homosexuality during their times
       together in the reeking shed,  surrounded by blood
       and  rot.  In time,  Constanzo found the trappings
       of death  in his  godfather's  shed  increased his
       pleasure in sex."   --"Buried Secrets", page 78

       At least one hundred thousand active practitioners
       of Santeria live in Miami today, and several times
       that nationwide."  --"Burried Secrets", page 58

       "Desecration, murder, what did it matter? That was
       the beauty of having no soul." --Humes, page 77

  "A  full-time  crew  for the Metro-Dade Department of Public
  Works pulls garbage from the Miami River every  day  by  the
  ton,  much of it related to rituals. In a three-month period
  in 1989, the crew removed two hundred decapitated  (but  not
  plucked)  chickens; twenty-two similarly headless ducks; and
  an assortment of eels, iguanas, pelicans, pidgeons,  snakes,
  turtles,   cats,   and  dogs--beheaded  or  marked  in  ways
  consistent with Palo Mayombe and Senteria. One day, a calf's
  head  turned  up  in  a nearby canal with its brain removed.
  Later, a headless goat was found floating next to a murdered
  drug  trafficker--the  santero's  way of paying for taking a
  life by offering another to the orishas." (Humes, page 61)

  "Hard on the  1989 police  raid of the  Matamoros cult,  the
  Houston Post  reported  that the  name  of a  suspect in the
  case, Rick Block, had turned up in documents seized from the
  Southern Air Transport  C-123K  cargo  plane  downed  by the
  Nicaraguan  Sandinistas,  kicking  off  the Iran-Contra rev-
  elations."  (Constantine, Alex "Psychic Dictatorship in  the
  U.S.A.", page 119)

  Hollywood Unmasked - Matamoros Murders
  The Matamoros Murders
  By Jason Kovar
  "I  think  the suspects must be possessed by the devil. That
  would be the only explanation for such bizarre actions."
  So voiced the mother of  slain  victim  Mark  Kilroy,  found
  murdered  in  Matamoros  Mexico in April of 1989. Kilroy had
  been spending time over the Mexican-American  border  during
  spring  break,  when  he  suddenly  disappeared. Missing for
  weeks, Kilroy's parents turned up the heat  on  the  Mexican
  government,  causing  an all out search for the missing boy.
  Eventually, he was found murdered, along with another grisly
  discovery.  The  investigation  into  the  disappearance  of
  Kilroy had accidentally led authorities to  a  graveyard  of
  people who were all recently missing as well.
  The  bodies  of  dozens  of  people were found mutilated and
  sacrificed in occult rituals used for  blessings  over  drug
  manufacturing. Carlos Tapia, Chief Deputy of Cameron County,
  Texas, remembers his shocking investigation. He stated:
  "I thought in my twenty two years of law enforcement  I  had
  seen  everything. I hadn't. As we drew near, you could smell
  the stench...blood and decomposing organs. In  a  big,  cast
  iron pot there were pieces of human bodies and a goat's head
  with horns."
  Authorities  also  discovered  an  assortment   of   "voodoo
  paraphernalia," a blood splattered altar of sacrifice, cheap
  rum, human body parts, animal bones, chicken and goat heads,
  as well as the witch's cauldron filled with the foul mixture
  of blood and flesh.
  The human sacrifices offered to Satan were people  who  were
  abducted  off  of  the  streets, locals and otherwise. Tapia
  sheds some light on those  who  performed  homage  by  human
  sacrifice to their god:
  "In  their wicked, distorted minds there was no seriousness.
  They thought they had performed some kind of heroic deed for
  the  Devil. They believed that by sacrificing innocent human
  beings, their loads of marijuana  would  have  an  invisible
  shield  of  protection  from  law enforcement officers. They
  were moving an average of one thousand pounds a week  across
  the border."
  The  ringleaders  of  the  group,  Adolfo Constanzo and Sara
  Aldrete, were both immersed in the occult and  sold  out  to
  its  application  in order to gain prosperity. Carl Raschke,
  considered a leading authority on the occult, sets forth:
  "Constanzo, like his American counterparts who  had  steeped
  themselves  in  the  fashionable black arts as dictated over
  the years by such magical luminaries as Aleister Crowley and
  Anton  LaVey,  founder of the Church of Satan, could only be
  called a Satanist."
  Constanzo's group was wound up in  a  voodoo  type  religion
  known as Santeria. Santeria encapsulates a ritualistic magic
  that slowly evolved  to  become  a  major  religion  in  the
  Central  America's.  Its  foundation  is the occult and it's
  basic tenure parallels Satanism  as  defined  by  the  chief
  Satanist  of the twentieth century, Aleister Crowley. Migene
  Gonzalez-Wippler, author of Santeria: African Magic in Latin
  America,  and  devout  follower  as  well  defines  Santeria
  through comparison:
  "The English magician Aleister Crowley defined magic as  the
  ability  to  effect  changes  in consciousness in accordance
  with the will of the magician. This definition  agrees  with
  the magical principles of Santeria."
  Constanzos  and Aldrete's actions resulted from obedience to
  occult powers. Santeria's  all  encompassing  philosophy  of
  Crowley's  motto,  "Do  What  Thou  Wilt,"  allowed them the
  liberty to snuff out the lives of innocents. In  the  occult
  and  Satanism there is no overall value system, no universal
  rules concerning sex, drinking, drugs, lying, etc. Professor
  Mercedes   Sandoval,   of   Miami-Dade   Community   College
  underlines this very point. She says, "Santeria has no moral
  stance.  It doesn't make judgements in your life. It doesn't
  say no to anything."
  What led to the gruesome mass sacrifice of so many people in
  Matamoros? The motivations for the deranged killers sprouted
  not only from the Crowley-like Santeria, but  also  the  big
  screens  of  Crowley-like Hollywood. Constanzo was known for
  giving  psychic  readings  to  many  musicians  and   famous
  Hollywood  celebrities.  But  aside  from this, the greatest
  factor that most influenced  him  was  a  movie  called  The
  Believers.  This  film  was actually a major contributor for
  inspiring Constanzo and his  cronies  to  recapitulate  what
  they viewed.
  In  1987,  director  John  Schlesinger  made  The Believers,
  starring Martin Sheen and Jimmy Smits. The film was about  a
  New  York  City  cult that sacrifices children to gain money
  and power  and  clearly  bases  much  of  its  ritualism  on
  Santeria. According to the confessions of the accused, their
  distinct  style  of  religion  had   been   based   on   the
  supernatural Hollywood movie. Occult researcher Carl Racshke
  "It is not at all surprising that Constanzo and Sara Aldrete
  were  infatuated  with  the movie The Believers. The magical
  practitioners in the film are portrayed as  insuperable  and
  almost all knowing."
  The  Matamoros  group  used  the  principles outlined in the
  movie as a springboard for executing their  occult  beliefs.
  Serafin Garcia, close participant with Constanzo and Aldrete
  totally succumbed to the message in the  film.  After  being
  arrested,  Garcia  confessed to George Gavito the gravity of
  the situation. Gavito recalls:
  "I remember I didn't understand what he was  telling  me.  I
  said,  'Is it Santeria?' And he said, 'Yeah, yeah, Santeria,
  voodoo, man.' And then he kept on  saying,  'The  Believers,
  The Believers, The Believers.'"
  Although  unfamiliar  with the ins and outs of Santeria, The
  Believers programmed Garcia  and  provided  a  mind-altering
  influence for his torturous slayings. Gavito adds:
  "Elio  made  [Serafin]  Garcia  a  priest, but Garcia didn't
  really know what he was practicing because all he had on his
  mind was the movie."
  Sarah  Aldrete,  called  the most "wickedly depraved" of the
  bunch by an interviewing officer, used the movie to  recruit
  members  into  avenues of the occult. Rolling Stone magazine
  "[There is]...a story making the rounds that  tells  of  the
  night Aldrete persuaded three male friends to screen a video
  of The Believers. After the film, say the students,  Aldrete
  stood  up  and  began  to  preach in strange tones about the
  occult. 'They had been drinking and they  just  thought  she
  was  trying  to  be  spooky,' says one student who knows the
  boys, 'but they look back on it now and think she must  have
  been serious.'"
  Satan's  messages  are without a doubt absorbed by the world
  and used as elusive tools for reconditioning. Incidents such
  as  this  proves  that  even movies that are not blockbuster
  types  with  full  blown  special  effects  have  incredible
  potency to muster the sinful nature within man. Chief Deputy
  Carlos Tapia warns:  "Don't  get  caught  unawares  like  we
  did... Do yourself a favor. Save your kids!" Sadly, when the
  news of the sacrifices broke,  instead  of  people  avoiding
  evil  and  saving  their  kids,  they  jeopardized  them and
  gravitated to it. Gary Provost, in his documentary The  True
  Story of the Satanic Cult Killings, wrote:
  "In  video  rental shops everywhere, clerks noticed a run on
  the film The Believers. When news stories reported that  the
  movie  had  been  used  as  a recruiting film by Constanzo's
  youth cult members, the stores had thousands  of  calls  for
  the film."
  If  Hollywood  says  human  sacrifices  are acceptable, then
  acceptable they must be! Sadly, Mark Kilroy and  a  host  of
  others had to lose their lives as a result. Don't allow your
  brain to be twisted and programmed by what the world defines
  as  acceptable and innocent shows. Spend time with the Lord,
  learn of Him and let each day of your life be a devotion  to
