Witch murdered in Mexico's Cancun resort paradise

Maya women cooking in Quintana Roo.

In Cancun, an otherwise idyllic Mexican resort town in the Yucantan peninsula’s Quintana Roo state, an attempted robbery led to a murder by an 18-year-old man who was under the influence of narcotics. On April 21, Pablo Tomás Poot Koo entered the home of Margarita Chan Colli (55), where he also found Maria Eugenia Felmo Uicab (age unknown), and María Cruz Oxtec Canul (54).

Poot Koo assaulted all three women, injuring them with a bludgeon. Oxtec Canul, however, died as a result of her injuries, having perished as a result of a severe blow to the cranium. When asked about his motives, after apprehension by police, Poot Koo claimed that he attacked the women when he concluded that they were “witches” who had put a spell on him. “I felt really bad; that’s why I did it,” he told police.

Poot Koo was a neighbor of one of the women he attacked, María Eugenia Felmo Uicab. She and Margarita Chan Colli were taken to a local hospital for treatment of significant head injuries. The assailant is now in detention awaiting arraignment. Quintana Roo, besides being the playground for vacationing Americans and Canadians (especially students) is home to Mexico’s Mayan people, many of whom retain native surnames, customs and practices.
