A teenager in the UK has been sentenced to at least 35 years in prison for murdering two sisters in a brutal stabbing that, a court heard, was part of a “contract” he’d made to offer a sacrifice to a demon to secure a lottery win.

Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman were killed in a random attack on June 6, 2020, in  London, after meeting to celebrate Henry’s birthday. Smallman was stabbed 28 times and Henry was attacked eight times in a frenzied assault before the attacker, 19-year-old Danyal Hussein, fled the scene.

Hussein never offered evidence in court and failed to provide an explanation for the murders. Investigating officers found a note where he’d made a “contract” with “King Lucifuge Rolocale” to “sacrifice only women” in return for “wealth and power.” It was signed in his own blood.

In the 10 days after the attack, Hussein had spent £160 ($220) on lottery tickets in the hopes of securing the “fruitful rewards” requested in his contract. If he hadn’t been detained, police fear he would have struck again, as the offer to the demon promised to “perform a minimum of six sacrifices every six months for as long as I am free and physically capable.
