A precious three-day-old baby was horrifically thrown into a blazing bonfire in Chile because the leader of a cult believed the newborn was the antichrist. The deadly ritual was allegedly approved by the infant’s mother.
Police have arrested four people involved in the death of a newborn baby, 3, after she was burned alive in a religious ritual in Chile. The cult responsible for the gruesome killing was led by Ramon Gustavo Castillo Gaete, 36, who is still at large.

Before the tragic murder, the baby was placed on a board and had her mouth tapped shut to muffle her dying screams, according to the Daily Mail. Miguel Ampuero, of the Police investigative Unit, revealed the horrifying conditions in which they found the baby.
“The baby was naked. They strapped tape around her mouth to keep her from screaming,” Miguel told the Daily Mail. “Then they placed her on a board. After calling on the spirits they threw her on the bonfire alive.”
The ritual took place on Nov. 21 on a hill in Colliguay, a town near the Chilean port of Valparaiso.

Natalia Guerra, the 25-year-old mother of the slain girl, was a member of the cult, and had allegedly approved the horrific ritual.
The baby had allegedly been murdered because the cult leader believed she was the antichrist — and the end of the world was near. Ramon led the 12-member cult, which was formed in 2005. Miguel said the cult was made up of a group of professionals, all of whom held university degrees.
He is still on the run, although he was last seen traveling to Peru in order to by a hallucinogen to control his members.
