Back in the early 1960s, the scamming Hernández brothers rolled into the poor, isolated village of Yerba Buena, Mexico, and claimed they were prophets of the gods, telling fanciful tales of untold riches for the villagers if only they did whatever the two brothers said. This worked for a while, but when the townsfolk began to notice that they weren’t actually receiving any of the wealth the “prophets” promised, the Hernándezes realized they’d have to up their game. Recruiting a nearby, eighteen-year-old sex worker named Magdalena Solís and using simple magic tricks to pass her off as an ancient and all-powerful Aztec goddess named Cōātlīcue, the scam jumped into high gear once again. That is, until Magdalena started to get her own ideas about who was running the show, leading to one of the most horrific cult murder sprees we’ve ever discussed on 13 O’Clock, one that is truly right out of a horror movie. Join Tom and Jenny as they delve into the bizarre Mexican sex cult that eventually demanded human sacrifice, and discuss the woman at the center of it all, the serial killer sometimes known as The High Priestess of Blood.
