Demonic weaves believed to be root of hair crimes

Demonic weaves believed to be root of hair crimes
WMC Action News 5 (NBC affiliate Memphis TN)

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Thieves have killed four people while trying to steal hair weaves and products, and now many Memphians say demonic spirits could be to blame.

It is a theory that's taking on a life of its own online.

Search the words "cursed hair" on the web and the prophesies are plenty.

"Whose-ever hair I was wearing on my head, that heifer had a bad omen and that bad omen followed her from India and came on top of my head, and I took on her spirit," one woman said on YouTube.

After a WMC Action News 5 investigation revealed how deadly the business of selling hair in Memphis can be, Mid-South women let loose on Facebook.

Weave wearers went back and forth about what some believe to be the root cause of the crimes.

One woman wrote: "Do you know the history of the hair's original owner? What type of spirit did that person have? You may be buying a person's hair and their demonic spirit."

...

I feel like I should weave this one alone, but I can't help asking... Did any of the victims curl up and dye?
What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!

Only if they were a cut above the rest.
