Extraordinary claims. Ordinary investigations.

A Brazilian Werewolf

Priest distribute crucifixes to scare the mysterious man away

From the G1 news service:

‘Werewolf’ scares inhabitants in Ceara state
Suspect robs sheep and breaks into houses in the Ceara rural area. Police officer says someone is using masks to scare the naive.

Inhabitants from the rural area of Taua, Ceara, are scared with the doings of a ‘werewolf’ who is robbing sheep and breaking into houses of the locality. Two cases were registered by the city police this Wednesday, July 9.

Despite being a New Moon night this Monday, a woman said to the police that she saw a man “half-man and half-wolf”. On Tuesday, a 12 year old boy also told the police officers that he saw a similar figure near his house.

Both reports suggest that the figure is “very ugly and have a strong sulfur smell”. “I believe it is a person using a werewolf mask to scare the people of the area, who strongly believe in folk tales. They are innocent and naive people”, said the regional deputy officer, Marcos Sandro Lira.

He confirmed he recorded two official reports on the case. “We are investigating a possible group that is acting this way to commit some crimes, but nothing supernatural”, said Lira.

In the city the case has been already named the “midnight mystery”, and is being viewed with humor.

In the south of the country

In April of this year, inhabitants of Santana do Livramento, Rio Grande do Sul, also had their moments of terror with attacks of a “Black Caped Man". Without solid data about the apparitions, the investigation approached the records as mere folklore. "Unfortunately, we have more important things to solve", said deputy officer Eduardo Sant’Anna Finn.

Joke or reality, priest Valerio Silveira, 71, decided to react and adopted an emergency measure to help protect the followers of the Prayer House. He distributes "bloodied" crucifixes, painted red, claiming that the object repels the "Black Caped Man".

Will the Ceara Werewolf case be solved? Will the Black Caped Man be captured? Should we prepare our own bloodied crucifixes?

Brazil has also seen recently the case of the house with squirted blood, and is home of bizarre reports such as the boiling oil aliens, also from the more traditional northern states.

The reports of werewolves and black caped men coming from rural areas are similar to reports coming from India, or Tanzania.
