42 innocent lives were taken by Achmad Suradji in Indonesia, as an attempt to increase his own magical powers. Being arrested in May of 1997, Suradji said that he started killing in 1986, after he had contact with his father’s ghost in a dream, ordering him to murder 70 women and drink their saliva to become a mystic healer. The victims were all those who had visited Suradji seeking spiritual healing and good fortune. His wives and sisters were also arrested for assisting in the murder. Suradji was found guilty on April 27, 1998 and was executed on July 10, 2008.
