He started to read books about "Black Magic" and some others about "Hitler & Killing People" when he was obsesed about killing people he played "The Ouija" and it is when he said that he had sold his soul to devil.

My Opinion
When I first heard about Garavito I asked my mom who was him because I lived near Genova, so she explained to me everything about him. I thought he was crazy for doing all what he did. After watching the interview "Pirry" did to him, I am sure that he is saying that his father had abused him just to have an excuse, and also he is saying that he is part of a church only to make people believe that he is different now. And I think that the laws in Colombia are unfair because he has to be in jail for the rest of his life because of all he did.
