'Hell to pay': Church of Satan mourns arson at New York 'Halloween House'

Sat 16, Jan 2021, 21.12 GMT

Members of the Church of Satan are grieving the destruction of a historic “Halloween House” north of New York City that authorities say was set ablaze by an unidentified arsonist.

The home, built in 1900, served as an Addams Family-style hub for local adherents of the religion, the Poughkeepsie Journal reported.

Surveillance footage showed a man walking up to the house after 5am on Thursday with two gas cans, splashing liquid on the front porch and igniting it. Two people escaped the house unharmed, authorities said.

Peter H Gilmore, high priest of the Church of Satan, paid tribute in a “requiem” to the house and its former owner, Joe “Netherworld” Mendillo, a church member and “dark side Martha Stewart” who died last year.

“Joe’s legacy will live on, even though the extraordinary home he so carefully cultivated has been destroyed through the hateful act of some deeply disturbed individual,” Gilmore said in the statement, which the Church of Satan sent to the Guardian via Twitter.
