OGDEN, UT – Police have arrested a man after he stabbed his 10-month-old son to death on a homemade altar.

On Friday, 37-year-old Alex Hidalgo had been left to care for his son while the boy’s mother ran errands.

When she returned home she found Hidalgo reading the Bible and watching “a video of religious music and sermons.” Which is never a good sign.

What she did not find was her son.

When she asked Hidalgo where their son was he told her the boy was dead. He explained their son had “666” on him and that he;d sacrificed him on an altar he built.

She thought Hidalgo was joking until she found her son’s body in a garbage bag inside a closet. The boy had been stabbed multiple times in the neck.

Hidalgo fled the scene as the boy’s mother called police and attempted CPR on her son. The boy was rushed to the hospital but could not be saved.

When police arrived at the scene they found a paring knife in the sink that had been recently washed that they believe was used as the murder weapon.

Hidalgo was taken into custody the next day after he was found hiding inside an abandoned house. He’s been charged with aggravated murder, obstruction of justice and desecration of a human body.

Speaking of 666, did you know that this isn’t even the correct number when talking about the “number of the beast” referenced in the Bible? The earliest known transcript of that Bible verse shows it was actually 616.
