News: Albuquerque "sacrifice" claims

A couple of weeks ago I posted details of a news story about an Wiccan accused of murdering a man with an athame.

Angela Sanford, aged 30, of Albuquerque, USA, is accused of stabbing Joel Leyba, aged 52, at a spring ritual.

Today, I read an update on the story claiming that Sanford had listed Leyba's phone number under the name "sacrifice".

Her claims of being a Wiccan are being questioned, as no local Wiccan groups say they know her.

This is certainly a story I will be hoping to find out more about.

As the latest news story states: "Sacrifice is not a characteristic of the Wicca religion which promotes a peaceful lifestyle."

I guess even the most fiendishly cunning of murderers end up making just one tiny slip that gives them away...
