Mother claims son belonged to ‘vampire cult’ (Texas)

Woman claims group planned sacrifice

- A Brownsville mother said her son is involved in a teenage “vampire cult” that was recently planning to kill and bathe in their victim’s blood.

Brownsville Independent School District police are investigating the claims though school district officials could not substantiate the woman’s story or her son’s allegations Tuesday.

The 16-year-old boy provided a statement to school officials Thursday about an alleged drug purchase at Rivera High School and told them of his involvement with a group of local students who drink each other’s blood and were plotting to sacrifice a victim.

In his statement, the Rivera High School junior said he “had to obey” the cult’s leader and that the group planned to kill a person and bathe in their blood.

BISD Police Chief Oscar Garcia said his office plans to investigate the allegations with the assistance of the Brownsville Police Department.

“The information that came to us is that it (cult activities) took place off campus,” Garcia said. “We’ll definitely have a follow-up investigation to make sure everyone is safe.”

The boy’s mother, who asked not to be identified Tuesday, said her son told her that he and his girlfriend would cut themselves in the teachers’ parking lot of the school and taste each other’s blood. The boy’s mother said her son claims the group has members in other local high schools.

Letters addressed to the boy and provided to The Herald by his mother, contain details of alleged acts of vampirism as well as logos and symbols from popular punk bands.

“Sorry if my blood isn’t yummy,” one letter states. “I hope you don’t feel bad about cutting me. I liked it a lot. It doesn’t hurt.”

According to a 911 tape released to The Herald Tuesday, the boy was held at Rivera High School shortly before 4 p.m. Thursday with reported “suicidal tendencies.”

In the tape, operators say the boy told a school district police officer that he would commit suicide if he went home. An ambulance took him to Valley Baptist Medical Center-Brownsville.

According to his mother, the boy is receiving treatment at the San Antonio State Hospital. She said she spoke with him and his caseworker Monday and reported he was “doing better” and taking anti-depressants.

The woman described her son as “a good student,” involved in school activities.

His style of dress changed when he was in the ninth grade when he began to dress in all black or in the “gothic style” she said. “To me (the color) black is evil, but he claimed it wasn’t. He told me, ‘It’s just me.’”

More recently, the woman says she began to see behavioral changes in the boy and his taste in music favored metal and punk. He started experimenting with drugs and stealing money from acquaintances.

She has asked school officials to enforce dress codes and rules against bringing CDs to school.

“We need to open the eyes of parents,” she said.

"The woman described her son as “a good student,” involved in school activities."

Just once, I want the parent to say something like, "I knew he was no good!"

Or the neighbor to say, "Quiet? Hell, he was a real jerk and we all knew he was raping babies in his house!"

Anyone ever watch Dave Atell's Up All Night on Comedy Central?

In one episode he hung out with a "Vampire" cult for an hour or so. What a bunch of sorry freaks! I imagine they are D&D geeks who never grew out of it. They just took it to a whole higher level of role-playing geekdom.

LOL! I'm a Horticulturist, not a psychologist or ME. I made the same comment on the "Body Suspension" thread.

Where DO they come from? Under slimy rocks? The margins of society? Where, a?

That was it! I remember them saying "The Masquerade".

They took themselves so seriously, it was funny.

Not a clue in the story as to whether this was a Gothic thing, a hispanic thing, or anything at all about the demographics of the kids involved. That kind of information is relevant, even if only to the parents of kids who attend the school.

When you take something away, it leaves a vaccuum and will be filled with something else.

There are satanic groups here in the Panhandle...stuff is going on (and has been for many years) that I would have sworn NEVER happens! Talk to some of the psychologists that are involved with kids into this stuff...it will scare you to death. I have no doubt that the kid in the article and his friends are into the satanic scene. It's amazing to me how the police and media try to keep it quiet and out of the paper. I think they're afraid the public will panic.

Well certainly murder and child rape is not funny.

But the way these particular "vampires" acted, in such a melodramatic way as if the rest of us should take them seriously, well *that* was funny.

You could tell that the more than a few of them probably lived in Mom and Dad's basement past the age of 30, if you catch my drift...

Drink enough of it, and you will 'pass' a large 'blood clot'.
The sight of that in the bowl would probably put an end to any but the most serious blood drinkers...

Put me on it. I lived in Brownsville for three years. My parents live there now.

That city has a bizzare history of stuff like this:

The cult murders across the border.

High school student (aquiantence of mine, actually) shot dead after a local curandera told the mother of his former girlfriend that she needed his blood.

Parents that decapitated their kids.

Now this.

And probably other instances.

What a screwy city. The "Tragic Valley."
