"Manuela, now 23, was first introduced to vampirism and the Goth lifestyle at age 16, when she ran away to London and met up with a secret colony of blood drinking satanists in that city's north side. Soon, she hooked up with lover Daniel Ruda, another would-be vampire and satanist. The two got married in a satanic ceremony and went to live in Germany, taking up the dark Goth lifestyle there.
Manuela and Daniel Ruda and their many Goth friends gave the El Diablo hand sign back and forth as a sign of recognition. It was a sign indicating their love and worship of their Master, Lucifer. It also signified their hatred of everything good.
On July 6, 2001, Manuela and Daniel followed what they claim was their Master's order to "kill, sacrifice, bring souls!" The chosen victim, Frank Hackert, 33, "suffered well," bragged Manuela. After inviting the unsuspecting Hackert to their apartment for a satanic party, she and her vampire husband, Daniel, pitilessly stabbed the hapless Hackert a grand total of 66 times on that 6th day of the month (666). They then cut a satanic pentagram (5-point inverted star) in his chest and drank his blood from a bowl on an altar topped with skulls. Afterwards, the two satanic killers celebrated by enjoying sex together as they lay in a silk-lined oak coffin."
He showed up for a satanic party and was ritually sacrificed. Now that is one hell
of an obituary.
I'd say these two monsters knew a fair deal about Satanic rituals.
Perhaps she means to say "I love you" camera man! Or maybe just I love you satan =P
"Strangely, family members and friends not involved in satanism and vampirism say they did not realize that the hand sign was the devil's calling card. "I thought it was just a fun thing, you know, sorta the kind of cool way kids show they are having an awesome time at a heavy metal concert," said a cousin.
Manuela's mother says she was, however, increasingly disturbed over her daughter's lifestyle. Especially when Manuela had two teeth removed and had metal vampire fangs implanted. She was also taken aback by her daughter's tattoo—an upside down cross on her scalp.
But the hand sign? "Well," she said, "I thought it was like the sign the deaf give, meaning, I love you."
"I often heard Manuela say she was not of this world and was a satanic vampire," recounted her mother, "but I figured it was just so much silly talk. Just another way of living. After all, not every Goth vampire ends up sacrificing victims to Satan."
In the end, it was Manuela's mom who turned the couple in to the police. She was alarmed after her daughter wrote her a letter confessing the crime and showing no remorse whatsoever. Manuela even told her mother she looked forward to serving Satan, her Lord, in hell."
