Ahmad Suradji was an Indonesian cattle breeder turned serial killer. He murdered more than forty women in the late 1980s and the early 1990s. Also known as Nasib Kelewang or Datuk, he practiced black magic and was a sorcerer as well. He used to strangle his victims with a cable and bury them up to their waists in the ground as a part of a ritual he practiced. All of his victims were girls and women ranging in age from 17 to 40. He continued his killing spree for 11 years before he was eventually arrested in 1997, after bodies were discovered near his home on the outskirts of Medan. He was then sentenced to death by firing squad and executed in 2008. His three wives were also found guilty and one of them was sentenced to death, though her punishment was later changed to life imprisonment. He had committed the murders as a part of a black magic ritual which he believed would increase his magical powers. He said that his deceased father had appeared in a dream and advised him to drink the saliva of 70 dead young women in order to become a mystic healer.
