Two Florida men have been arrested after deputies say they were hanging signs promising “healing” for would-be victims.
According to DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office, two men, Jose E. Churon-Gomez and Moises David Churon-Gomez, were arrested after it came to the attention of investigators that the duo was posting signs representing one of their companions as a “Healer.”
Meaning they have the power to cure people of problems relating to affairs of the heart, forms of card readings, and connecting the living to those who have passed on.
