Death joramThere are many stories in the Bible not only about love and kindness, but also about justice, which is often cruel. One of these is the parable of Joram. According to legend, he was once the ruler of Judea and considered Beelzebub the main deity, which caused Yahweh’s anger. Joram was severely punished: he was struck by a strange disease, from which his flesh began to decompose from the inside. Before dying, the king suffered for 2 years.
How was Herod punishedAnother biblical horror story is dedicated to King Herod, who ruled Caesarea of Palestine.

Subsequently, he organized the persecution of the first Christians, executed John the Baptist and the Apostle James. In the Bible, the cause of the death of Herod is the eating of worms alive.

Execution of Gyorgy DojiInquisition, war, disease left a terrible mark in the history of the Middle Ages. There were a lot of terrible deaths at that time, but the mention of one of them still makes blood flow in the veins. This is about the execution of Dyerd Doji.
Gyorgy Doge headed a peasant uprising in Hungary. It was quickly suppressed, after which his wounded leader was captured by the government. So that other peasants would no longer have the idea to rebel against the feudal lords, a cruel execution was invented for Gyorgy Doji.
Then they brought into the hall Brother Dyerdy and those who together with him took part in the riot. The brother was publicly cut into pieces, and the like-minded rebel, suffering from a prolonged hunger strike, were forced to bite off the flesh of the still alive Doji in a circle.“Eat it whole and survive”, they promised. All those who refused to eat human flesh were killed. Consented to cannibalism too, but only after the Doge was eaten.
Torture of Dzyunku FurutaHuman cruelty to such people often knows no boundaries. And, unfortunately, the references to the terrible torture and murder are not only related to the Middle Ages.
In 1988, a 17-year-old Japanese woman Dzyunku Furuta was kidnapped by a group of minor sadists: Hiroshi Miyano, Dze Ogura, Shinji Minato, and Yasushi Watanabe. 44 days they kept the girl in captivity in the house of one of the gang members.
On the very first day of her imprisonment, she was repeatedly raped, forced to devour insects and drink urine, stuck smoldering cigarettes into her flesh and set the girl on fire with a cigarette lighter.
On the eleventh day, her limbs were broken and hung from the ceiling, using the girl's body as a punching bag.She tried to run away, but the escape failed, for which her feet were poured with ignition fluid and set on fire. Then Furuta was tortured by inserting a broken bottle into the anus.
On the twentieth day, firecrackers were stuck into the girl, and then red-hot needles.
A month of detention passed, and the bored rapists came up with new ways of torture. The unhappy Japanese woman was poured hot wax on her face, wasted her breasts with needles, squeezed her nipples in a vice, and at the same time thrust a light bulb inside the girl.
The police managed to find the corpse and the killers. But the punishment did not correspond to the crime - the malefactors were sentenced to imprisonment for 4 to 17 years, depending on the degree of guilt. Under the law protecting the rights of minors, their names were not publicly disclosed. Hiroshi Miyano, the leader of a sadistic gang, was released in 2007.
Fateful ChristmasOn Christmas Eve 2002, the 25-year-old bartender Doyle decided to celebrate the holiday with his friend Michael Wright and his girlfriend.

The distance to the bottom was about 5.5 meters.
Wright wanted to scare Doyle, but did not suspect that the bottom of the sewer was flooded with boiling water from a broken pipe. The bartender fell into boiling water with a temperature of 150 degrees Celsius, and injuries did not allow him to get out. He was still alive when help arrived, but neither the firemen nor the doctors had risked going downstairs.
