Father accused of trying to sacrifice son in cemetery

A father is accused by police of attempting to sacrifice his 8 year old son. Police said that Joseph Ramirez, 30, took three of his children to the  Mount Hope Cemetery in San Diego and starting slicing the forearms of his 8-year-old son. Ramirez reportedly had been hearing the voice of his dead grandmother in his head.

The incident began while Jaymisha Pires and Corey Granberry, both 21, were visiting the cemetery to visit the grave of Granberry’s godson. Pires confronted Ramirez, begging him to release the boy.

Pires said Ramirez kept saying, “We’re going to Jesus, we’re going to Jesus.”

About Irma Sanchez

Irma Sanchez, was born and raised in Dallas, Texas before moving to California three years ago for a job and now resides in Chicago, IL. She has been a fan of Being Latino for some time now. She was excited to be able to join and contribute to the already amazing team. In her personal life, she works as an International Relocation Consultant and has moved many families across the globe. She thanks her job for making her culturally sensitive and learning the art of patience. She has a B.A. in Decision Science and if you ask her what Decision Science is she will refer you to Wikipedia because she just listened to her counselor when deciding to get that degree and has long forgotten what it meant.

In her spare time—when she is not working because she is a self-proclaimed workaholic or doing things with Being Latino—she loves to paint. She claims that she is still in the learning phase and it will be a while before she shares her art with everyone. She enjoys reading anything and everything because she says if you are not in the know, how can you be prepared to debate? She also likes to travel and spend as much quality time with her family that she can as they are still in Texas. She has a small obsession with her youngest nephew and is now considered the boring aunt.
