The worst part is that the fortune teller was incredibly non-specific, she didn't say it was Ms. dos Santos, just that it was someone they loved, which could have been anyone! They assumed, and then followed that assumption! And to top of this insanity circus, it's all over money. Did they even check that they were missing any?
God fucking damn it. I don't care that the fortune teller was conveniently vague, he most assuredly had no fucking clue who was stealing from them but still told them a lie that wound up with a woman tortured and threatened with mutilation. There's no excuse for that.
There's probably no crime with the woo peddler, but surely he should be taken to civil court.
