The couple met up on the trails Monday and started drinking, police said.Short form: Wiccan gets drunk, pees, gets naked, stabs boyfriend to death with head shop athame. Also, there was allegedly some tying-up action with a rope at some point in the sordid tale.
"She had decided she needed to go to the restroom," Albuquerque police cheif [sic] Ray Schultz said. "The male had asked if he could watch her go to the restroom."
"This is a time of Wiccan holiday, being the solstice [sic]," said Schultz. "We're still investigating to determine if that had something to do with this particular homicide."Yeah, they were engaging in an ancient rite worshiping Bud Weiser, the forest spirit in charge of being noisily ill in the woods. I'm sure that's somewhere in chapter nine of The Golden Bough.
I am not going to pretend that this makes any kind of sense to me, but I will note that nothing like this ever happens on Law & Order.
