Ritual killer expected #Satan to appear, court hearsfrom news24.com: The alleged mastermind of a deadly satanic ritual expected Satan to appear after calling on him in a chant, the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg, sitting in Palm Ridge, heard on Friday. "I expected something to happen," said Linden Wagner, who wrote the poem that he and his accomplices chanted after he assaulted and set alight his friend Kirsty Theologo, 18, and throttled her 14-year-old friend. "In American films, people who sold their souls died physically and then came back to life," he said. On Wednesday, Wagner testified that he had wanted to sell his soul so he could gain power. "When you sell your soul, you gain something. You can gain money, power and fame," he said.
