Decapitating and ripping apart their still-living victims, the dreaded Knights Templar Mexican drug cartel forced members to devour the hearts of its enemies. The Knights Templar, reigning over Michoacan state, has kept the region in its iron grip by armed vigilantes and cartel henchmen.
Arguably the country's most horrific organized crime gang, Michoacan state suffers daily from ongoing battles between rival factions.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Arguably the country's most horrific organized crime gang, Michoacan state suffers daily from ongoing battles between rival factions. Chiefly agricultural, violence has increased there between various criminal factions.
In addition to cannibalism, the Knights Templar has also been known to boil people alive.
The bodies of seven men with ice picks in their chests were left in a public street in 2013 by the notorious Knights Templar in Michoacan, Mexico.
One of their more nauseating tactics was hanging the body of a pregnant woman and three other residents in 2013 from the welcome sign to rural Limon de la Luna.
The Knights' spiritual leader, Narzio Moreno, aka El Mas Loco, or The Craziest One was notorious for his love of knives and guns and was one of the world's most-wanted cartel leaders. Mexican authorities twice reported killing him - once in 2010 and again in 2014. It was his decision to add cannibalism to his syndicate's arsenal.
The body of a pregnant woman and three other residents were hung in 2013 from the welcome sign to rural Limon de la Luna by the Knights Templar drug cartel, who control nearly the entire state.
Making members eat a human heart as a test of loyalty was part of Moreno's way of finding traitors.
"The ritual ranged from dismembering people they intended to kill to sometimes serving up the heart," Alfredo Castillo, Michoacan's federal security commissioner said in a recent TV interview.

Mexico is facing one of its biggest cases of cartel corruption and lawlessness. President Enrique Pena Nieto is in the midst of the worst crisis to rock his government since he took office. A drug cartel in Guerrero state, working for a local mayor, abducted and assassinated 43 college students in September.
In the meantime, massive protests continue across Mexico by demonstrators demanding justice for the slain students and for an end to pervasive corruption.
