Was it VooDoo?

A couple of articles on the grisly mass-murder in Fresno. Here and here.

Creepy, sad, and, sorry to say, morbidly interesting in a "Silence of the Lambs" sort of way. A black man in dreds, a "spell" cast on his followers, coffins. A sociopath's take on voodoo?

Also, how were these children born here without someone knowing that their grandfather was also their father? The incest angle is, of course, universally disturbing. Forget the reference to Buffalo Bill: this seems like an urban, bloodier version of Deliverance.
