Family of Dead Man Freaked Out by Gravesite Voodoo Find... what do u think about this??

Painful as it is to bury a loved one, at least delivering them to their final resting place should mean not having to worry about them anymore
Pilar Martinez Jr. can no longer take solace in that, after finding 22 jars filled of wax voodoo dolls with pins stuck through them buried two feet below the gravestone of his father, who died 13 years ago. To make the story even weirder, women's panties and photos of unidentified ladies were also found in the jars.
Houston-area voodoo priest (good work if you can get it) Dr. Congo doesn't think the Martinez family is in jeopardy, but acknowledges "whoever did the work was doing it to harm someone."
Police are looking for the grave desecrator, who could face a charge of criminal mischief, and the Martinez family is looking for a pastor who will fight off evil spirits by blessing the grave site

  • OMG lmao! The Martinez family has nothing to worry about. People who practice voodoo hold certain rituals in the graveyard for them to work properly. Most likely they chose that particular grave because of the location/direction it was facing. People get so freaked out because of the way Hollywood has portrayed Voodoo. It's really a very fulfilling/light religion. The Voodoo dolls are more for Hoodoo which is the darker practice of Voodoo and is not recommended. I am a Voodoo Priestess and have been for quite some time, I've never once made a voodoo doll or tried to cause harm to someone else. Nor has anyone else in my coven.
