Santos and her husband, Oscar Palencia Lopez said they’ve been victims of attacks since rumors about her baby’s strange demeanor started to spread. They said their home has been attacked with stones almost every night by fearful neighbors.
Even though their neighbors believe that the baby is possessed, doctors and police authorities are skeptical about his evil spirit. The Colombian Family Welfare Institute, the National Police, and the Catholic Church are investigating whether or not the baby’s abnormal behaviors are the result of abuse rather than a demonic spirit.
While reviewing the case, a team of psychologists said they see signs of abuse.
“Two small burns were found on the palm of the left hand and for that reason a restoration measure was adopted to [Safeguard] the family environment,” investigators reported.
The family has received a warning while the investigation continues.
