Justice for Woman Burned Alive for Being a ‘Witch’

fire-by-jonas-bengtsson

Target: Prosecutor Huge Mauricio, Peru

Goal: Seek the maximum penalty for community members who reportedly burned a woman alive because they believed she was a witch.

A 73-year-old woman was strapped onto a pyre and burned alive by community members who believed she was a witch, according to detectives. A witness took a video of the savage murder and gave it to prosecutors who allege that the victim, Rosa Villar Jarionca, had her hands tied to logs while a man doused her with gasoline just before a match was thrown on her. Her screams can be heard in the video as the lit match is tossed, according to a prosecutor. Authorities say that a document, signed by community leaders, said that Jarionca’s murder would serve “as an example to the community and other communities against this kind of damage.”

Jarionca was apparently left on the pyre burning for three days in order to remove all evidence of the murder, but authorities found her bones. Because the disgusting murder was committed deep in the Peru Jungle, the victim’s remains weren’t discovered for a week. This is the most savage and deplorable kind of treatment humans could commit against their own kind. Burning a woman alive for no other reason than because she’s believed to practice witchcraft is absolutely appalling. The community leaders and members involved in this heinous murder should be punished so severely that they can’t ever hurt another soul. Please sign your name to the petition below to demand that this poor elderly woman be given the justice she deserves.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Mauricio,

A 73-year-old woman was allegedly burned alive by the members of her own community because they believed she was a witch and responsible for their ill health. The poor elderly woman was reportedly tied to a pier that burned for three days, but detectives found some of her bones and a signed document by the community leaders. The document reportedly stated that this incident would serve “as an example against this kind of damage.”

There is no excuse for this insane level of horrific human torture and murder. It’s up to you to see to it that Rosa Villar Jarionca gets the justice she deserves. That is why we’re urging you to see to it that her murderers are given the harshest punishment the law can allow.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. Was it hillary??

    • nancy zebracki says:

      good answer

    • Gen Lovyet Agustsson says:

      no it isnt hillary! this is not pre-1800s where u execute people by burning down people! this is 21st century and i do not believe that witches exist! i am a buddhist orthodox and i really believe in peace not much violence. i mean witchcraft may not have been existed in reality!

  3. Talk about primitive! This was done a couple of centuries ago, one would think humans have become just a little more sophisticated by now! But then, I suppose in the heart of the Peruvian jungle, people are very backward and supersticious. Whoever did this should certainly be thrown into jail for life- this was a heinous murder and the offenders should never be allowed to see the light of day again.

    • Barry Appleby says:

      I believe that the Catholic Church had a good deal to do with spreading the notion of witchcraft, which was later
      adopted by the Protestant churches.

  4. These primitive lowlife monsters must be all brought to Justice and sentenced to death for the deliberate murder committed against an innocent person Rosa Villar Jarionca. What the hell are these psychopathic murdering monsters thinking of.
    They must be put to death.

  5. Rosslyn Osborne says:

    God rest her soul! I’m shocked, appalled, sickened that any human beings could blame an elderly woman for illnesses in their community? Then to act so barbaric and heinously burn her alive?
    They are all mentally depraved and need to be incarcerated and permanently removed from society.

  6. Poor lady.
    Troglodytes running free. It speaks volumes about these governments!
