A teenager fatally stabbed two sisters in a park last summer after allegedly making a “sacrificial deal” with a demonic spirit to win the lottery in exchange for human sacrifice, a London court heard this week at his trial.
Danyal Hussein, 19, is accused of the lethal attack of siblings Bibaa Henry, 46, and Nicole Smallman, 27, who were found stabbed to death in North London just over a year ago. On Thursday, jurors at London's Old Baily learned of the note that was allegedly found in his home, and of which he denies having any knowledge.
On June 6, 2020, Henry and Smallman’s bodies were discovered in a cluster of bushes in Fryent Country Park in Wembley, Sky News reported. The two sisters were reportedly celebrating Henry’s birthday.
Detectives soon tracked Hussein to a home in southeast London where the teenager appeared “quite calm,” officers said, according to the BBC. He was arrested on suspicion of murder on July 1, 2020.
Investigators said they later found a handwritten contract Hussein had scribbled to the devil, in which he promised to murder half a dozen women twice a year in exchange for cashing in on the Mega Millions Super Jackpot Lottery. Three lottery tickets were allegedly found next to the letter.
Police said that in the agreement, which Hussein apparently addressed to the “Mighty King Lucifuge Rofocale,” he wrote he would “perform a minimum of six sacrifices every six months for as long as I am free and physically capable.”
The note, which also promised to “build a temple” for the demonic entity and to “sacrifice only women" was signed “Danyal” in blood, according to law enforcement.
Hussein has denied writing the disturbing message or any involvement in the double murder.
A balaclava, shovel, and blue latex glove were also seized from his bedroom, investigators said. DNA evidence also implicated him in the crime, Sky News reported. Hussein's trial continues this week.
