A Canadian man named Sebastian Woodroffe, 41, who was living in Peru was lynched by locals when they accused him of murdering 81-year-old Olivia Arévalo, a female shaman from the native Shipibo-Konibo people. She was shot twice and died on Thursday near her home in the small village of Victoria Gracia, Ucayali, Peru. Wooddroffe was a patient of the woman’s and knew her son very well. So well that police are saying he is the reason Woodroffe killed the shaman. Apparently, Olivia’s son owed Woodroffe money and when he didn’t pay up, he went after the man’s mother. But what Woodroffe forgot was that Peru ain’t Canada. The natives in Peru have no faith in their justice system, so they take justice into their own hands.
You can hear the badly beaten man screaming as two other men put a rubber hose around his neck and drag him until he goes limp. His body was found by police buried in a shallow grave about 0.6 miles from Olivia’s home. The Shipibo-Konibo people are known for their use of ayahuasca, the reason Woodroffe made the trip to Peru to begin with. He was trying to learn how to treat drug addiction with the use of ayahuasca.
