A Florida man convinced that someone had cast a voodoo spell on him filed a police report last month so that he could have documentation of the curse, just in case. And it appears these types of calls are fairly common in the Sunshine State.
According to the police report, the man “seemed normal at the time of the investigation,” when he told police that Haitian community members, jealous of him, had cast a spell designed to steal personal information from him.
Although the man felt the curse had been in place for at least a year, he has not yet suffered any ill effects, according to the police report.
These types of calls are apparently common in Florida, mostly in the Haitian community. In Delray Beach, where 10 percent of the community is Haitian, police “occasionally get calls from Haitian residents fearing supernatural death threats and curses.” According to the Sun Sentinel, the “department takes a report and leaves it at that.”
