Residents claimed that it was fourth time this that the said statue has cried tears of blood and they believed the bizarre incident is a response to the area’s rising crime.
According to reports, the first time the ceramic statue, which is kept in a private residence, cried blood was on New Year’s Day.
The soaring crime level in town with an average of 111 murders for every 100,000 inhabitants, according to the Citizens’ Council for Public Security and Criminal Justice made the inhabitants think that the statue is expressing unhappiness.
Local resident Soledad Natividad Flores told reporters: “A lot of people have said that this is being done by the Devil while others believe that it is a message from God.
“The truth is, we are convinced that it cried, even when people were holding it.”
Residents also claimed they were scared to remove the statue and bring to the church for verification.
