article imageSalem witch takes warlock to court days before Halloween

Salem - While you might think this is a Halloween prank, it's actually a true story. A witch in Salem took a notorious warlock to court and won, a couple days before Halloween.
Lori Sforza, 75, who goes under the business name of Lori Bruno, used to work in partnership with a self-proclaimed warlock, 45-year-old Christian Day. The pair even made the headlines at one stage. Back in 2011, actor Charlie Sheen dubbed himself a "Vatican assassin warlock" and Sforza and Day cast spells together to try and "heal" the Hollywood actor. Sforza reportedly said she treated Day "like a son."
According to Crimefeed, the partnership failed back in 2012 and both witch and warlock went their separate ways. Reportedly Day didn't take the split too well and began harassing Sforza, phoning her incessantly, particularly late at night, and trolling her on the social media. This harassment has reportedly gone on for the last three years.

Both parties now run their own occult-related businesses in the town made famous by the 17th century Salem witch trials.
Sforza had enough of the treatment she was getting from her former partner and decided to take him to court. According to the Salem witch's attorney, Fiore Porreca, Sforza was being "abused, intimidated and harassed" by the warlock and this was having a negative impact on her business.
As reported by the Inquisitr, during the the hearing Sforza claimed she is a psychic witch and can see her own future. While it's not clear what she saw, it was apparently something pretty bad, which was part of her decision to take the warlock to court.
The judge was sympathetic and was apparently dismayed by the sheer volume of the number of calls made by Day to Sforza and a restraining order was taken out against the abusive warlock. Day didn't testify in court, but later denied making any phone calls and stormed out of the court in a tizzy, later telling reporters he was going to appeal.
According to the New York Post Day now lives in Louisiana, but owns occult shops in New Orleans and Salem, where he apparently organizes the "Festival of the Dead" every Halloween. This festival covers a whole series of occult-themed events in Salem during October each year, culminating with the Witches' Halloween Ball on October 31.
Presumably the Witches' Halloween Ball is still on tonight in a town which draws huge crowds every October, due to the fame of the notorious 17th century Salem witch trials.
