Straight Outta Compton: Containers of Body Parts
The city of Compton is South-Central Los Angeles has a violent and torrid history; the community has been a hotbed of drug and gang activity for decades as was the epicenter of the infamous riots sparked in the wake of the Rodney King verdict in 1991. But a recent discovery at a local shop brings a whole new level of creepiness to this embattled community.
Cops were called to Omi Relekun, which bills itself in Spanish as a “spiritual store and school”, over complaints of animal cruelty, but what they found is potentially much more alarming: A human skull, along with a cache of other human remains stored in 8 separate containers. It is unclear whether the proprietors of Omi Relekun were selling these macabre items or merely housing them.
Also uncertain: Whether these remains were legally procured, or perhaps morbid trophies of some sinister homicide?
With shades of voodoo and Sanitaria, the scenario reminds me of a scene out of 1987 psychological thriller THE BELIVERS. In that movie, a psychiatrist (played by Martin Sheen) stumbles into some chilling situations while perusing a cult accused of performing human sacrifices. Will the remains discovered at Omi Relekun reveal similar tales of ritualized mutilations?
