Generally, an exorcism consists of a priest, with the permission of the church, expelling demons out of a child, using the word of God, holy water, etc. A 49-year-old man name Ronald Marquez from Phoenix, Arizona decided to take matters into his own hands. The only problem is his 3-year-old granddaughter wasn't possessed.
After receiving a phone call from a relative, Officers responded to a report of an exorcism and found Marquez choking the young bloodied girl. A bed was pushed up against the door and they were only able to get it opened a few inches. However, it was enough to subdue the man with stun guns and get the girl and her bloody, naked 19-year-old mother, who was chanting something religious, out. According to the same relative who called the police, this wasn't the first time Marquez performed an exorcism on his granddaughter.
Marquez was placed in handcuffs after a struggle with officers and initially appeared normal, but then stopped breathing. They attempted to revive him, but were unsuccessful. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. It's uncertain as to what the exact cause of death was, but the results of an autopsy will be available in a few weeks.
The mother was not arrested, but police will consider criminal charges.
