Four people in Chile were arrested Thursday for allegedly burning a baby alive in a ritual last year. A global apocalypse cult feared that the end of the world was near. One of the participants, Natalia Guerra, 25, was the alleged mother of the 3-day-old baby. The Chilean cult members believed the child was the antichrist and brought the baby to Colligua, Chile, gagged it and prepared to sacrifice the baby through a burning.

The cult members tossed the baby into a bonfire where it later died. Miguel Ampero, an agent with the Police Investigative Unit, the Chilean version of the FBI, said that surprisingly each cult member was a "professional" in business. "We have someone who was a veterinarian, [a] flight attendant, [and even a] filmmaker." Ampero explained in gory detail exactly how the sacrifice occurred: "The baby was naked. They strapped tape around her mouth to keep her from screaming. Then they placed her on a board. After calling on the spirits they threw her on the bonfire alive," Ampero said.

The 12-member cult's leader, Ramon Gustavo Castillo Gaete is still on the lam. Gaete allegedly was last seen in Peru where he reportedly wanted to buy a hallucinogen that he used to control the cult members called Ayahuasca. Gaete called himself "Antares From The Light," a self-proclaimed God who believed in the end of the world theory of 2012. Ramon Gaete was reportedly the child's father and established relationships with many of the women in the cult.
