The Greek community of South Africa is shocked after the horrible news of the death of the 18-year-old girl that had been attacked 2 weeks ago in Johannesburg as part of a suspected satanistic ritual.
Greek-S. African Kirsty Theologo died just a week after she was set ablaze, press reports from the Greek community in South Africa said.
Court records say that Theologo and her 16-year-old friend known as “Brownyn” were among 8 young people gathering on a remote hill. The young girls were offered something to drink but Kirsty spat it out because of its strange taste.
One of the young men then doused Kirsty with gasoline and threw a lit match on her. Her 16-year-old friend tried to put out the flames by rolling her on the ground. Thus, Bronwyn suffered burns to her body as well, but unlike Theologo she will survive the attack, doctors said.
According to Telegraph, another boy cut a third girl’s hand and then held it over a Bible so that the blood would soak it. The group then left and the girls managed to break free and walk 10 blocks home in a terrible condition before driving to South Rand Hospital.
After sustaining third and fourth degree burns, Kirsty was in an induced coma for some days, but the burns had caused serious damage to her lungs and throat.
According to iOL News, four male suspects – Lindon Wagner (21), Robin Hardwood (18), Lester Evan Nathaniel Moody (18) and Jeremy King (18) – have been brought to justice so far with the charges of murder and attempted murder. The police are continuing their investigations of the case.
