• Porn star Nacho Vidal has been arrested for murder in a ritual in which toad poison was inhaled

Three people, including a porn star, have been arrested for reckless manslaughter during a ritual in which toad venom was inhaled.

The porn actor Nacho Vidal was arrested along with two others, a relative and an employee of his company. All have been accused of reckless homicide during the celebration of a mystical ritual based on the inhalation of poison toad fumes that occurred in July 2019, in the Valencian town of Enguera, just north of Ontinyent.

The Xàtiva Judicial Police Team opened their investigation after the death the photographer José Luis Abad, during the celebration of a mystical ritual based on the inhalation of the fumes of the poison toad bufo alvarius, which is called the ‘molecule de Dios’, in the country house that the actor owns in Enguera, according to the local press.

It has also been shown that the procedure was a habitual activity for therapeutic or medicinal purposes that in itself posed a serious risk to public health, but that it was masked by what seemed to be an apparently harmless ancestral ritual, using alternative methods of treatment.

The investigation was carried out over 11 months, following which three people, two men and a woman aged between 37 and 50 and of Spanish nationality have been arrested. The proceedings have been made available to the Court of Instruction No. 2 of Xativa.
