The London teenager who killed two sisters claimed that the murders were part of a deal he made with the devil to win the lottery. Danyal Hussein, 19, murdered 46-year-old Bibaa Henry and 27-year-old Nicole Smallman by brutally stabbing them in Freyent Country Park in June 2020. Their bodies were later found in the bushes close by.
- Murder was Hussein’s way of holding up his end of the bargain. According to Reuters, Henry and Smallman were killed so that Hussein could satisfy his bargain with “Mighty King Lucifage Rofocale.” Hussein said that he signed his contract with the devil in his own blood and promised to “perform a minimum of six sacrifices every six months for as long as [he was] free and physically capable.”
- He chose to sacrifice only women. The Sun reports that the pact Hussein made with the devil asked him to “sacrifice only women” and “build a temple” so that he could not only win the lottery but get away with committing the crimes.
- Police believe he would have killed many more if given the chance. Detective Chief Inspector Simon Harding commended Henry and Smallman put up a “very brave fight” against Hussein and added that the force was glad he was in custody before he could harm anyone else. “I am totally convinced and my team are that he would have gone on to commit more murders. It is difficult for any normal person to comprehend. It’s almost sort of movie-like,” Harding said.
- No one knows how Hussein developed a relationship with “Mighty King Lucifage Rofocale.” However, authorities believe that he was radicalized before the murders, as he had previously been referred to Britain’s counter-extremism program in 2017. He should be sentenced in the coming months, though it’s likely he’ll end up spending the rest of his life behind bars for his brutal crimes.
