Three people have been arrested in connection with the gruesome murder of a Texas woman. Police say the woman was killed as part of a “human sacrifice” and had her toes, fingers and ears cut off by a “satanic” man involved in “cult activities”.
Last Sunday, police from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office conducted a welfare check on a 36-year-old woman in Joaquin, Texas. Around 4 p.m., officers discovered Sarah Hopson’s body in the bedroom. Police said she was brutally murdered and mutilated.
Hobson reportedly suffered from large wounds on the right side of her head and forehead. Hopson’s toes, fingers and ears had reportedly been cut off. According to the affidavit, a lawmaker found a clear freezer bag containing the woman’s body parts between Hopson’s legs.
MPs remarked that the bedroom smelled of fresh paint and the walls appeared to have been recently painted.
“Several paint cans were found in the room, as well as ‘several’ Dollar General bags filled with an assortment of cleaning supplies, the affidavit said.” Law & Crime reported. “A tool that indicates the presence of blood spatter, even after wiping it down with household cleaning supplies, reportedly showed large amounts of blood on the bedroom walls and stains on the bedroom dresser.”
The walls reportedly appeared to have “smudge marks,” possibly indicating someone cleaned the walls.
According to the affidavit, law enforcement also found a straight razor, several wrenches on a dresser, paint brushes, paint cans and cleaning supplies at the scene. Investigators also discovered a pair of jeans with Ethan Kyle Myers’ Texas ID card in the pocket, police documents said.
Police tracked down Myers and searched his car. Inside they found a shovel, plastic bags, a gallon of gas, a hammer, a tire tool and a large rock in a garbage bag that smelled of gas, the affidavit said.
Investigators determined that the top of the rock matched Hopson’s head wounds, police said.
On Thursday, police arrested Myers when he was allegedly hiding in the woods.
On the day that police found Hopson dead, Allen Price and Teresa Louviere visited the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office to tell authorities that “Ethan Myers did something to Sarah Hopson,” the affidavit reads. They claimed Myers was “acting strangely,” noting that he fled Hopson’s home with blood on him. Myers reportedly lived with the duo.
Price allegedly told police that Myers, 26, was involved in “cult activities.”
Investigators questioned Myers’ mother, who said her son “heard voices and was satanic,” according to the affidavit. She also reportedly told police that Myers wanted to “sacrifice” her.
Myers was charged with Hopson’s murder and evading arrest. He is being held in the Shelby County Jail on $1.25 million bail.
Price and Louviere were arrested and charged with tampering with and fabricating physical evidence to damage a human corpse. They are held on a $250,000 bond.
