    Peru: Canadian kills British tourist during drug ritual


    By Franklin Briceno | AP

    LIMA, Peru — A 29-year-old Canadian allegedly stabbed to death a British tourist after the two drank a hallucinogenic brew at a spiritual retreat in the Peruvian Amazon.

    Local authorities said the incident happened Wednesday night at the Phoenix Ayahuasca spiritual retreat near the town of Iquitos.

    It’s not clear what led to the death of Unais Gomes, 25. But local police chief Normando Marquez said witnesses described a fight breaking out between Gomes and fellow tourist Andrew Freeman during which a knife was pulled against the Canadian. The same knife was then used by Stevens to kill Gomez, the chief said.

    In a video, Stevens can be seen being taken away in custody by a police truck. He was later released but must remain in Peru while he is being investigated for homicide, said Martín Manrique from Iquitos’ prosecutors’ office.

    The hallucinogenic cocktail ayahuasca, also known as yage, has been venerated for centuries by indigenous tribes in Brazil, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia as a cure for all sorts of ailments. But it’s also increasingly consumed by Western tourists looking for mind-altering experiences, sometimes with deadly consequences.

    The two men were guests at Phoenix Ayahuasca, a self-described “shamanic healing retreat” owned by a sister and brother team from Australia. It describes itself on its website as “a safe and supportive place to experience plant medicines and explore the true nature of the self.” Phoenix didn’t return emails and phone calls requesting comment.

    Going to Peru to get high. Drugs are just so hard to find in N America.
    People need better hobbies.

    What a bad trip. Limey pulls a knife to harsh the mellow now Canuck's gotta fight for his life.
    Poor guy had to come down in a Peruvian jail. Probably doesn't remember a thing. Oh man!
