She Could Not Eat!

As her condition worsened, she could not eat food and claimed demons never allowed her to eat. Her kneecaps broke due to the self-harm that she did. She just wanted to die and even begged to be killed. Her weak condition made her contract pneumonia and fever even while her exorcism processes continued.

Her Final Exorcism

Her final exorcism happened on June 30th 1976. She was very weak and yet spoke her last words, where she told the priests to "BEG FOR ABSOLUTION" and whispered to her mum that she was afraid of what was happening. She died soon after the exorcism and medics claim it was due to malnutrition.

Her Death Created A Buzz All Over The World
