Deadly Devotion - The Madanapalle Murders

10/13/2023
On Jan 24th 2020, the double murders of sisters 27 yr old Alekhya & 23 yr old Sai Divya in Madanapalle rocked India just as the Pandemic had put the nation into lockdown. Their family was so entrenched in the delusions & superstitions of a mentally unwell instigator. The shared delusions of salvation & resurrection seemed to have suddenly led to these strange & spine-tingling murders of the sister by their own parents. The case is so convoluted and it's nearly impossible to make sense of who instigated & manipulated whom. What do you think?
