Grisly Package Delivered to Florida Jail Linked to Witchcraft

Grisly Package Delivered to Florida Jail Linked to Witchcraft

Police are investigating a grisly package delivered to a Florida jail last week, believe it's linked to witchcraft

Police may have inadvertently opened an X-File when they began investigating a package delivered to a Florida jail.

Last Wednesday, workers at the Falkeburg Road Jail in Hillsborough County were startled when they stepped outside to find a box containing some grisly contents: the headless bodies of a goat, a dove, two roosters, and several chicks.

Detective Larry Mckinnon is convinced that the delivery was a message with it’s roots in witchcraft.

“It was a disturbing discovery,” he told The Daily Mail. “We feel like its some sort of ritualistic killing. Someone was clearly sending a message to someone inside the jail.”


Just a week earlier, Tampa police discovered a box outside the courthouse which contained a cow’s tongue studded with a hundred nails, a clear message that someone needs to “keep their mouth shut”, according to Sheriff Mckinnon.

A religious  studies expert,  Dr. Mozella Mitchell, believes that the police are correct in their assumption that someone is using dark magic to send a message.

“Witchcraft, yes witchcraft, I think it would be something related to that, it’s the act of some crazed mind, a person who’s out of their head.”

this isn’t witchcraft, its Santeria. as a practicing witch i take offense that someone would assume i would mutilate animals for my science, or even that i would need to. witchcraft uses various tools, but it is mainly an expression of intent. (and need) please watch this libel in future.

By definition, witchcraft is “the art or power of bringing magical or preternatural power to bear or the act or practice of attempting to do so;” it’s not just intended for use for those who practice Wicca, Druidism, or any similar religious practice. Even Santeria (which actually is a mix of Christianity and magic) or hoodoo fall under the “witchcraft” definition. It’s just like how “shaman” doesn’t specifically refer to Native American medicine men. I took it as saying what the officials were saying, not being libelous. If he said “Burn the witches! They’re Satan’s helpers!” then I could understand.… Read more »

Now I’m offended you consider witchcraft even comparable to science. It’s not.

Oh, and the contents of the package sound suspiciously similar to the “grisly package” found off South Beach. As a lifelong resident of central Florida, I’m pretty skeptical of the “rise in witchcraft” considering all the baptists and Catholics around.
