A Texas man has been accused of murdering a woman before dismembering her body as part of an alleged Satanic sacrifice.

Ethan Kyle Myers, 26, was arrested after the horrific Nov. 13 discovery and charged in the death of Sarah Hopson, 36, with authorities alleging she died due to blunt force trauma to her head.
Police reportedly discovered Hopson’s body last Sunday while conducting a welfare check in Joaquin, Texas. Court documents claim the victim’s fingers, toes, and ears were cut off and placed inside a freezer bag near her body.
Hopson was found wrapped in a piece of carpet, with authorities claiming the room smelled of fresh paint; they also discovered cleaning supplies and purportedly found traces of blood in the room.
“When using a spray solution that makes blood glow, investigators saw large portions of the bedroom glowed (including handprints on the freshly painted door) and droplets on the dresser appeared to be consistent with blood spatter,” KYTX-TV reported. “The walls also glowed, showing what looked like ‘wiping marks’ of someone trying to clean the walls, the affidavit stated.”
Myers’ mother allegedly later told investigators her son said Hopson wanted him to “sacrifice” her, and that her son “hears voices and is satanic.”
The accused reportedly evaded arrest but was captured after Price and Louviere purportedly went to the sheriff’s office to report they feared Myers had harmed Hopson. They purportedly said they hadn’t seen Hopson since the day before and that Myers left the home with blood on him.
Price, mirroring Myers’ mother, also told authorities Myers was involved in cultic activity, according to KYTX-TV.
Myers was arraigned last Tuesday and given a $1.25 million bond.
Please pray for the families of those involved during this unimaginably difficult time.
