Police are investigating the deaths of two members of a cult associated with a self-proclaimed healer from Kutná Hora, located in Central Bohemia. The news server reported today that the men, aged 56 and 59, died last August as a result of a forest ritual near Český Šternberk castle in the Benešov region. The ritual reportedly involved psychological strain and physical violence.

Vlasta Suchánková, spokeswoman for the Central Bohemian Police, confirmed that authorities were looking into the deaths of the two men, but did not confirm any link to the case of the self-proclaimed healer.

According to, the ritual spanned several days and included instances of physical violence. One of the men, aged 59, fell ill and began to collapse, prompting female members of the cult to transport him to the Kutná Hora swimming pool and call emergency services. Sadly, their efforts to save him were in vain.

Suchánková stated, “The case of the sudden death of a man in Kutná Hora is being investigated by regional detectives on suspicion of bodily harm resulting in death. This case is still under investigation, so it is a phase that is not public, for this reason, we cannot be any more detailed.”

The second man was scheduled to accompany sect members in a van for the forest ritual but failed to appear at the agreed meeting spot. Crime investigators later discovered his body between the villages of Kozojedy and Truba.

Some members of the sect claimed he had taken his own life, possibly due to apprehension about participating in the forest ritual.
