A pregnant woman was fatally stabbed and incinerated in an alleged satanic ritual.

Fernanda Pereyra, 26, was horrifically murdered before her remains were set on fire that she could only be identified by a necklace she was wearing.

Her ashes were discovered in a wasteland in Argentina near the town of Rincon de los Sauces. The city has roughly 10,000 citizens and is located 700 miles west of Buenos Aires, Fox News reported.

The suspects allegedly used a large amount of gas to burn the body and then put it in a van.

When found, the van seemed to have been cleaned, but fragments of blood and hair from the woman — who was six months pregnant — were recovered.

Authorities have arrested three people in connection with the murder: her ex-boyfriend Luciano Hernandez and his friends Osvaldo Castillo and Diego Marillan.

The suspects have also been associated with drug trafficking and are believed to practice satanism.

The home of one suspect contained “satanic” music and pictures featuring tridents and women on fire.

San La Muerte or ‘Saint Death,’ the saint of drug traffickers, and “Destranca Rua,” an entity associated with the Angolan “kimbanda” religion, was included in the ritual.

Officers also discovered a sheep in the courtyard of one of their houses.

Authorities said the victim’s boyfriend killed her because she became pregnant with another man’s child.

However, other investigators argue that the murder was a warning to citizens against interfering with drug organizations.

Attorney Marcelo Henriksen Velasco stated: “In my opinion, this is not domestic violence, this is a crime linked to drug trafficking.”

Pereyra had endured other abuse before she was killed.

Another ex-boyfriend, boxer Ademar Maraguel, once beat her relentlessly while she was withdrawing cash from an ATM.

Maraguel, the father of her kids, was taken into custody but was then released.

Two years later, in 2016, she observed a crime in which Franco Orellano, a teenager, was murdered by a drug trafficker.

After that, she began receiving death threats, but authorities do not believe they are associated with her murder.

Judge Pablo Yancarelli has placed the three suspects in preventive prison for six months while the probe continues.
