From Vampire to Saint
Sarah Ellen was born on March 6th of 1862 in England. Legend says she was accused of murder and witchcraft and condemned to be chained and sealed inside an iron casqued while still alive. On June 9 of 1913 while the sentence was being carried out and right before sealing the casqued she announced her curse “When 80 years have passed I will rise from my grave and get revenge from my murderers’ and all their descendants”
The English people afraid of this curse forbid her husband to bury her in British lands so he had to find another place for her remains.
Finally after months of traveling looking for a place that would accept them, he arrived to a small town South of Peru named Pisco and buried Sarah Hellen there.
In 1993, after almost 80 years had passed, a popular talk show hosted by Cuban hostess Cristina Saralegui aired an interview to an “expert” in “Vampires” that announced that there were 3 important Vampires in Latin America, one just about to wake up in the Southern part of Peru.
Peruvians were astonished by this news and many believers of the occult or people simply thrived by curiosity went to Sarah Ellen’s grave and monitored every move. They had watch groups formed for several nights before the “awaken” and on the 80’s anniversary of her death many where standing in front of her grave holding crucifixes and wooden stakes (just in case).
After nothing happened (obviously) some of the people started to believe that Sarah Ellen was not a Vampire but instead a Saint and she had being wrongly accused and tortured. Nowadays many people visit her grave bringing her flowers and asking for miracles.
