FILE - In this Oct. 1, 2009 file photo, a man carries two statues of the folk saint Santa Muerte, or Death Saint in Mexico City. Mexican prosecutors are investigating a family outside a small town near the U.S. border as alleged members of a cult who sacrificed three people to the Saint Death, a figure adored mostly by outlaws but whose popularity is growing across Mexico and among Hispanics in the United States. The first of the three victims was apparently killed in 2009, the second in 2010 and the latest in March 2012. (Photo/Dario Lopez-Mills, File)
