Satan's Minion

Paranormal investigators have unearthed new evidence that Aleister Crowley (above), the notorious wizard who dubbed himself "The Great Beast," may have been directly responsible for one of history's most mysterious deaths.
Katherine Arnold-Forster was a healthy, active woman in 1938 when she suddenly died of a seizure.
At the time, Arnold-Forster was comforting a terrified friend, Mrs. Vaughn who'd fallen in with a new crowd that had must moved to Zennor, England.
They were followers of Aleister Crowley, regularly taking large quantities of drugs and engaging in black magic rituals.
Arnold-Forster saw this as a combination of hypnosis, trickery and the worst sort of fraud. Outraged, she marched off to confront Crowley when she was suddenly struck speechless.
She had to be carried back home on a stretcher and died the next day. No one was ever directly to link Crowley to her death.
But Arnold-Forster wasn't the only person struck down that evening. Next to her immobile body, authorities found Mrs. Vaughn's husband, John, who had gone out of his mind. He spent the rest of his life in a mental asylum, raving about what he'd seen that night.
Crowley was also a chess player, painter, astrologer, hedonist, bisexual, drug experimenter, and social critic.
How Crowley was able to accomplish this remains a mystery.
Aleister Crowley died of a respiratory infection in a Hastings boarding house on 1 December 1947 at the age of 72. He had become addicted to heroin after being prescribed morphine for his asthma and bronchitis many years earlier. He and his last doctor died within 24 hours of each other; newspapers would claim, in differing accounts, that Dr. Thomson had refused to continue his opiate prescription and that Crowley had put a curse on him.
