    Details

    “My parishioner, Alejandro Sanchez, recently suffered quite a tragedy. His wife, Carmela, a truly lovely woman, was killed in a terrible automobile wreck about a month ago, when her brakes failed and the vehicle was broadsided in an intersection.”

    “Evidence suggests that the brake failure might have been induced, and suspicion has landed on Alejandro, though there is no tangible evidence for his involvement other than the fact that he is the husband, and he has an unfortunate history of…ah…philandering. Nevertheless,” he added, quickly, “I do not believe him guilty of her death. He has been genuinely destroyed by her death, and his career and so forth have been rather derailed by the accusations.”

    “Nevertheless, even more disturbing, Alejandro and his two children, Tomas and Angelina, have been visited by a particularly gruesome spectacle. About a two weeks ago, the family was woken in the night by a most disturbing wailing. Alejandro opened the back door, thinking it was a cat, perhaps, and was confronted with what appeared to be the head of his deceased wife - grotesquely disfigured and bloody.”

    “Oh gross,” Jazman said, shuddering. “Poor guy…”

    “Quite,” the priest replied. “He intimated that the sight made him quite ill. And it should probably be noted that it’s even more dreadful when you know that Mrs. Sanchez was…ah…decapitated, in her accident.”

    “Oh my god…” Jaz’s eyes went wide. “That’s…” she started to say “fucked up,” but considered her audience. “Not good,” she finished.

    “It gets worse,” Father Dominic said. “Over the past days, the head has appeared to both him and the children - at the window, on the doorstep, wailing, gnashing teeth and trying to come inside the house. It’s quite traumatized the children, and no wonder!”

    “Have others seen it?” Jaz asked.

    “Oddly enough, no,” Father Dominic said. “I even spent the night there, and it never appeared. Oh, that’s another thing - it only shows up at night, and only to the father and the children. It’s very curious.”

    Summary

    The team discovered that a would-be major player, Dr. Geoffrey Gao, had gained control over the head of Mission: Success, an at-risk youth charity recently selected for a state-wide program that would give the owner (Emilio) access to at-risk teens all over, particularly those with connections to the cartels.

    Gao most likely killed Carmela because she realized he was a fraud, and Alejandro's name was quietly cleared. Additionally, Emilio was weaned away from Gao, and S&M is attempted to protect him going forward.

    The hex was cleansed and removed, and Eric set in motion plans to track any attempts to obtain Alejandro and Emilio's properties.
