Meet Sandra Alford, 46 of Lilburn, Georgia. Alford was arrested Friday for false imprisonment and cruelty to children for using handcuffs to restrain her 15-year-old son after either she or family friend Larry Powell (pictured below) called Lilburn police to report an “unruly juvenile.”
Police arrived and were told that the two were attempting to perform an “exorcism” on the young boy. An investigation revealed that the teen had been held against his will with handcuffs and was denied food and water for periods of 12 hours at a time over a three-day period as the two attempted to evict the evil spirit that had taken over his body. The teen was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center where he was treated for minor injuries and dehydration and later released.
The officer who applied for the arrest warrants noted that Alfred may suffer from schizophrenia and delusions. She and Powell both remain in jail awaiting a June 26th hearing. The case is now under investigation by the Gwinnett County District Attorney’s Office and the Department of Family and Children’s Services.
All I wanna know is…how did investigators know they were lying about the exorcism? Who’s to say that bad “A”zz kid wasn’t possessed? *sigh* Now there’s one more teen aged devil walking amongst us. Lord save us all…
