I saw this a quick blurb on the newsticker while watching the news. There were quite a few articles online but I was honestly too afraid to click the links because most warned of graphic photos.

The idea of this still happening in thw world in this day and age is heartbreaking. Ridiculous stereotypes are still so prevalent and resulting in death.

I do know that it is doubtful those movies are seen in the highlands of New Guinea, but the fearful view of witches sadly is everywhere.

My heart goes out to that poor woman and how she suffered.
