Wiccan family files suit against DHHR

By Charles Shumaker
Staff writer

A family of Wiccans falsely accused of sacrificing their children during religious ceremonies sued the state’s Department of Health and Human Resources for allegedly harassing them and taking possession of their children.

Sarah Albright and Nathan Malick III filed their lawsuit in Kanawha County Circuit Court last week...

The couple contends they have been continually harassed since moving to West Virginia in 1999.

While living in Muddlety in Nicholas County, a child protective services complaint was filed against them, alleging they practiced witchcraft and Satanism. It was also alleged during that time that one of their sons wore a pagan medallion to school. DHHR officials investigated but found no wrongdoing by the parents, according to the lawsuit...

On one occasion, DHHR officials and a State Police trooper were called to investigate an allegation that the couple had killed their youngest child in a sacrifice and were carrying the boy’s body with them. A later DHHR visit came from another false report that the couple’s children had been sacrificed.
