The Occult in Athens, TX

Posted on June 8, 2013


Hi there, It’s been a while since my last post…. lol. Well, I’ve got some really cool stuff for you in the near future. We have been doing a ton of research and I’m excited to show you a recent find. I hope you enjoy 🙂

I was scrubbing through the archives in the Athens Daily Review building a few weeks ago. In one of their (MANY) huge archive books I found a really cool article with the headline ” Lawmen stage occult workshop, Gravesite is mutilated here”. Apparently, the city was in a state of hysteria due to the numerous animal mutilations on hwy 19 and reports of occult activity in the city. The article also mentions an 18-year old man that was arrested for robbing the grave of an American civil war soldier. Chief Deputy Paul Clanton does go on to say that most of the reports of satanic rituals and mutilations cannot be substantiated, however, several cases of ritualistic activity have been confirmed. The article concluded with the following statement  “several Henderson county youth have become so deeply involved in dabbling in the occult that they have required mental heath treatment outside the county”.
