A father from Arizona thought his son had the devil in him.
A father by the name of Pablo Martinez is guilty of killing his 6-year-old demonic son, because he believed the boy was possessed by a demon.
The incident took place on September 26, on the Pascua Yaqui Indian Reservation. Police responded to the call at about 4:40 p.m. that afternoon. But when they got there, Pablo had already tried to cast the demon out of the boy using hot boiling water.
BuzzFeed News reports that the boy was found naked and placed sitting upward on a pillow. Paramedics immediately took the young child to a neighboring hospital, where the child was pronounced dead. He suffered from burns on 15% of his body.
Apparently, Pablo tried to wash the demons out of the child during his bath time.
What Happened at the Martinez Residence
According to the father, and the child’s adopted mother, the boy had been acting strangely for at least a week. So they tried to take matters into their own hands.
There’s no telling what else they did to the boy– but one thing is for sure– his head was held under a running hot faucet for 5 to 10 minutes.
Pablo says he “saw something evil” and “knew he had to cast the demon out.”
But as it turns out, his son just had special needs.
