Mexico City — Police say that seven people have been arrested after a 5-year-old boy had his eyes gouged out by his own mother during a drug-fueled ritual.

The horrific incident happened during a ritual inside a home in Nezahualcoyotl that involved several of the boys relatives and involved the taking of an unspecified drug. One witness who was there said they had taken the drug and fell unconscious. When they came to, the boy’s eyeballs had already been removed.

Investigators believe the mother removed her son’s eyes with her bare fingers because the boy refused to close them during the ceremony. After realizing what had happened, one of the participants ran out and flagged down a passing police car.

When the officers entered the home they found the mother in shock with her son in her arms.

“Once the woman allowed local police to check the boy, they were astonished to see the boy had no eyeballs,” the government said in a statement.

The boy was rushed to the local hospital in serious condition, but later transported by helicopter to a more specialized facility.

Even though I used a picture of Santa Muerte (because I didn’t feel like Googling “gouged eyeballs”), there has been no word on the ritual’s details. However, reports are that it does not seem to have any ties to the Saint Death cult, and no altar or statue of Saint Death were found inside the home.

The once clandestine cult has become a little less hidden lately and is rising in popularity in both Mexico and the United States. Last year, some members of the cult made the news after admitting to killing two 10-year-old boys and a 55-year-old woman as an offering to Saint Death.

I love Santa Muerte. Partly because I am morbid and love skeletons, but mostly because the Catholic Church deemed followers of Santa Muerte as devil-worshiping, criminal, Satanists — all three of which I would let babysit my kid before a Catholic priest.

    Always keep your peepers shut when praying to satanic cult icons while under the influence of unspecified drugs. Who doesn’t know this?

  • as if enough harm hasn’t been done in the name of god…now we have Saint Death ordering us around?   great, just great.

  • Pyncky

    In a perfect world religious people would just prey on each other and leave the rest of us be.

    “mostly because the Catholic Church deemed followers of Santa Muerte as devil-worshiping, criminal, Satanists — all three of which I would let babysit my kid before a Catholic priest.”  I freaking love you, Morbid.

    Wait, the mother was in shock with her son in her arms?
    In case she was unaware, gouging the eyes out of someone typically leaves them eyeless. Glad we got that cleared up because I know it can be a little confusing.
    How would she know that he didn’t close his eyes unless hers were open as well? HMMM? GOTCHA, BITCH! Someone gouge HER eyes out ASAP. It’s only fair since they were open too and all that jazz.

  • OutOfBubbleGum

    Dam!?!?  Most of ‘Us’ men have enough trouble not peeing on the seat with two good eyes. 

  • I just do not understand these people who hurt and kill their children. Seriously, WTF?? 

  • Lena60

    Hoo doo voodoo shit,is not any better or any worse then the other fucked- up relgions out there, with all their riruals.Iam assuming these people were fuck-up before they got religion/cult.

  • they’re too busy praying on each other to prey on each other.   
    The rest of us?  We’re just fodder for the preying part. 

  • Texas Ranger

    Damn, what the hell does Santa Muerte bring ya on Christmas Morbid?

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    Eyeballs, he has to do something with them all.

  • Andy P

    Probably after she recovered from whatever drug passed someone else the fuck out from and realized what she did was really morbid.    <-  See what I did there?  LOL

  • Heather4877

    She shoulda left him with a babysitter.  Even a Catholic priest might be better than this.

  • JohnQknowitall

    What happens next to the little boy?

    I agree with your perception of the smug Catholic church. How do they know they didn’t get the whole religious worshiping thing backwards? Blind faith?

  • newstarshipsmell

    That’s why I always sit down to pee. If you got shit aim…

  • newstarshipsmell

    Nope. A seeing-eye pit bull.

  • she dun goofed.

  • JGo555

    …. didn’t read the article when posted.

    Wish I hadn’t read it now either.

    Nothing to say but wishing the kid goes to the best blind school available & now he has something to hold against his mom every time she says: “No.”

  • JGo555

    An “escarlata… un mojón en una lata”.

    An “escarlata. A turd in a can”.

    It rhymes in Spanish.

     I laughed then groaned at “blind faith”


    The wiki link for Santa Muerta had a lot of info. dont know what kind of drugs they took but they dont sound like typical santa muerte worshippers who smoke or leave gifts of marijuana for her statue. I have often thought about what the world would be like if the catholic church had not sailed all over and forced their beliefs on the indiginous people who had the misfortune of running into them. It only confused them and raped them of their history and culture. Could anyone imagine how much more advanced we would be had they not destroyed the mayans star charys or burned the alexandrian library just to name a few. Christianity put us back into the dark ages in order to keep people in fear, ignorant and enslaved.

  • onlyme356

    Just cannot begin to imagine the trauma and suffering this poor child endured. And what he will have to deal with for the rest of his life. He is only 5 years old, she completely ruined him forever, crazy bitch needs to just kill herself.

  • Abroad

    “during his visit to Alexandria in 48 BC Julius Caesar accidentally burned the library down when he set fire to his own ships to frustrate Achillas’ attempt to limit his ability to communicate by sea”

    No Christians were involved in the burning of the library in Alexandria. They were not yet around at the time. Unless of course they’d/they’ve invented time-travel already…….

  • Poor kid..His mom is a dumb fuck…If the drug tends to make you hallucinate, and freak out perhaps you can leave your kid at the neighbors until your done getting high/enlightening.

    5yo wouldnt close eyes and pray and wouldnt join in ceremony so they gouged his eyes out to save the world

    Carmen Rios García, 23, allegedly carried out the attack with her sister in her home in Nezahualcoyotl, central Mexico, on Thursday when the child refused to close his eyes during a prayer ceremony to prepare for the “end of the world.”
    Regional prosecutor Isaac Acevedo said García and her 22-year-old sister had gathered with a group of eight other people, including four children, to prepare for the “fatal day,” which they believed was coming on Monday May 28, and the women attacked the boy when he would not join in.
    A 17-year-old boy reportedly ran out into the neighborhood shouting, “They’re killing my nephew,” El Universal reported Friday.
    According to preliminary statements, the family was part of a cult and said that they planned to kill the boy “to prevent the end of the world.”Read more: more:…]
