Pregnant mom has womb carved out in possible ‘macabre ritual’


A Brazilian mom pregnant with her fourth child was discovered slaughtered with her womb cut out, possibly as part of a ritual sacrifice, according to police.

The butchered body of 24-year-old Ohana Karolin of Mogi Guaco was found by passers-by in Portal dos Lagos in the state of Sao Paulo on Wednesday, the Daily Mail reported Monday.

Karolin’s genitals had been mutilated and her stomach and womb were sliced open, according to the authorities. The mom was seven months pregnant.

There was no immediate word on what happened to the woman’s unborn baby.

Police said they were looking into a theory that Karolin may have been sacrificed as part of some kind of a “macabre ritual.”

The area where Karolin’s mutilated corpse was dumped, with her shorts and flip-flops tossed aside, is surrounded by evangelical churches of various denominations.

The houses of worship often use a wooded space to hold open-air prayer services and vigils.

Investigators contacted Karolin’s ex-husband, the father of her children, who identified her body.

They were trying to determine whether the victim’s new boyfriend played a role in her grisly killing.

A friend of Karolin’s told the news outlet UOL that the pregnant mom had alleged ties to a “tough gang.

“I even moved away from her a little bit because of that,” the friend said. “But I don’t know what happened. She was really nice.”

An autopsy will be performed on Karolin’s body to determine how she died and what tool was used to rip her stomach open, authorities said.
