Woman dies during voodoo ritual

Authorities are investigating how an Arkansas woman died in what they call a voodoo cleansing ritual in a southern New Jersey townhouse. Prosecutors say 21-year-old Lucille Hamilton of Little Rock was found unresponsive in the Gloucester Township home early Sunday.

Camden County prosecutor's spokesman Jason Laughlin says an autopsy performed Sunday did not reveal the cause of death.

Medical examiners are waiting to see if toxicology results will help.

Six other people, including children, were also found at the home. All were checked at Virtua Hospital in Berlin Township and released.

Neighbors say voodoo rituals are performed at the home regularly on weekends.
