The Source:

Rodica Istratie:
"Blestemul moroiului a bagat īn mormānt trei oameni din Ticleni."
on: Gorj Domino.com, November 2009

The Case:

A 76-year-old man called Matei Moangher was found dead, half-eaten by his pigs. Village rumors linked his death to unfortunate events that had happened some twenty years before, after Matei's mother had died. And even though she is reported to have been a spiritual woman who often went to church, her death was thought to be the cause of further deaths. A two-year-old grandson had drowned in a pool, and his father got electrocuted and was also found dead among his pigs. When asked, however, the relatives all declared that they did not believe in old Elena becoming a "Moroaica", and the parish priest stated that the church does not accept the idea of people turning into evil spirits.

The Date:

The article is dated 3 November 2009.

The Place:

Ticleni can be found in Romania, somewhere between Targu Jiu and Craiova , pretty close to Targu Jiu.

Possible Follow-Up:

Is there a difference between a "Moroi" and a "Strigoi", and if so, what is it ? Why don't you go and find out ? You can try to find back the article that I mentioned. And you can try to unearth further press coverage of this case.
