Lorica, Columbia – 28-year old Ana Feria Santos is not enjoying the joys of motherhood, as she says her 1-month old baby is “the devil”.
She said her child showed plenty abnormalities, including that he could walk upright already and that he had an uncanny habit of cackling like an adult for hours.
“He walks like an adult, sometimes going off and hiding underneath the bed, in a suitcase, in the washing machine or in the fridge,” Santos was quoted.
Her neighbours in the town also claim he is possessed by a ‘malign spirit’ and that he is capable of producing fire. This, they say, is because burn marks have been found on his clothes and a sofa where he regularly sits.
It has led to vigilante attacks on Santos and her taxi-driver husband Oscar Palencia Lopez’s house, which is allegedly being pelted with stones on a nightly-basis by frightened residents, the paper reported.
Doctors do not believe the story, and have now launched an investigation into the possibility that the new-born could have been abused.
