    Victim's name is Kepari Leniata she is the mother of one child.

    Leniata was stripped naked by several assailants, tortured with a hot iron rod, bound, doused in gasoline, then set alight on a pile of car tires and trash in the Western Highlands provincial capital of Mount Hagen, police spokesman Dominic Kakas said.

    Some of the hundreds of bystanders took photographs.
    Rest in peace Kepari.

    tears for this woman. More for her child.

    Barbaric.

    The Raven and Eagle
    are husband and wife.
    The dark one rules death
    and the golden one life.

    His cloak painted with sunlight,
    Eagle soars the blue sky.
    With feathers black as pitch,
    Raven watches us all die.

    Both must be as one
    lest there be chaos on Earth.
    So from every rotting corpse
    there springs a new birth.

    author not known

    Rest peacefully Kepari.

    Horrific...the cruelty based on superstition! 'Man's inhumanity to man'.....

    The citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy—a policy worthy of imitation......which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance.......George Washington
