In South Africa, they are balls deep in sangomas, or healers. For the most part these sangomas are legit herbalists. There are however a number of bad sangomas, known as baloyi, which are more like dark wizards.

You delivered testimony at the trial of Morné Haarmse, a.k.a. the Samurai Sword Killer. Do you think Slipknot’s music influenced him to repeatedly hack at his fellow pupils and ground staff with a kitana? He was wearing one of those masks after all.

Have you ever come into contact with someone that has been possessed?

Evidence confiscated from a Satanic ritual investigated by the Occult Unit.

This is the kind of thing Satanists do when they get together and pray to the Dark Lord.

Ants?

And you dealt with stuff like this on a regular basis?
